These courses are being provided exclusively for Atlanta CDC/ATSDR based
Commissioned Corps Officers to help them meet deployment readiness
policy requirements. Priority enrollment will be given for active
duty officers who need to obtain BLS certification to meet basic
standards for readiness. Officers who are assigned to other agencies
or outside the Atlanta area may wish to visit the the Office of
Commissioned Corps Personnel (OCCP)
website or contact OCCP
staff at 770.488.1743.
Course Description: The Course is designed to teach the skills of
CPR for victims of all ages (adult and pediatric) including
ventilation with a barrier device, bag-mask ventilation, use of an
automated external defibrillator (AED), and relief of foreign-body
airway obstruction for the responsive and unresponsive victim.
The RENEWAL Course is for those persons whose certification is
current. This is a shorter and faster paced course. Participants
must provide a copy of their current card faxed to the Lifestyle
Office (404.639.4075) as soon as they register for a course.
However, if you have taken the course through the Lifestyle Program,
we can look up your certification date up in our database to confirm
your current card. AHA certifications are for 2 years so check your
card for your last certification date!
If you have any questions, please call Terri Thompson, Lifestyle
CPR Program Coordinator, at 404.639.2164.
