The program was given in a high school setting. Considering the students were still in high school, the program was divided into two. The program was strict and the material needed for this certification was studied in depth. When it came to clinical practice, the students were taught strict hygienic and the significance of patient privacy. A hard part of this course was the discipline in needing to complete all assignments and showing up to class every day. It was not hard but it did create difficulty as it overlapped with many high school activities. The most enjoyable part of the training was creating a bond with your classmates.

My class had a great instructor who really sat and spoke about literal stories to help us get an idea of how CPR can save a person’s life. After we worked hands on, on dummies and learned how to do the process correctly. He spent time with each individual to make sure we understood completely.

The typical day of training would be you get in and right away you can communicate with others until the teacher walks in and start teaching the class and then she would teach for 30 minutes then you would work for 2 hours on what the teacher taught you. My field of studies consist of music and I love the work I do, so the most enjoyable part of training is when you do what you love to do and that's the class you chose.

I felt that it would make me more employable to obtain the Barry Tech Certification and OSHA 30. It's very important to know about the prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces in general industry.
