COVID-19 Procedures

The health of our students is our number one priority, and in order to keep everyone safe during this time we have implemented a number of safety measures for our in-person courses.

  • Each student will be asked to stay at the same table/same seat throughout the course.
  • Each student will be asked to work with the same practical skills partner throughout the course.
  • Students will be asked to bring their own mask from home. This will be crucial in practical skills scenarios. If you do not have a mask, check out this link from the CDC on how to make a mask out of household objects.
  • Each student will be given a small spray hand sanitizer to use for the course. Please use this regularly. When you run out of hand sanitizer, please let one of the instructors know and they will refill it!
  • AdventureMed will provide gloves for use during practical skills scenarios. Gloves should only be used if you are the rescuer in a scenario.
  • Students will be asked to wash their hands frequently throughout the week. This means anytime they leave the building, return to the classroom, use the restroom, etc. Please wash your hands for 20 seconds at least. We will have portable wash stations set up outside during all practical skills sessions. When in doubt, wash your hands.
  • If you are the rescuer in a scenario, try to verbalize instead of touching the victim if the scenario allows it.
  • If you are not feeling well before class starts, or after the course has started, DO NOT come to class. It is imperative that you talk to your instructors before coming to class if you are feeling sick.
