Your registration is considered “pending” until payment is received or guaranteed by a company. Until this happens, you do not have a spot in the course. We do accept Visa and M/C over the telephone or you can come into our office and pay cash or debit.
This course is physically demanding. It will require prolonged kneeling, working in stooped positions, and rolling patients. Each class participant is required to function as attendant, helper and patient.
Accommodation may be made for participants that indicate a problem with some of the aforementioned activities. Participants may be permitted to adopt “comfort” positions on the floor to avoid kneeling or stooping for prolonged periods, even though the positions may not facilitate optimum patient care. However, regardless of accommodation made during the class, participants will be required to demonstrate specific skills according to an accepted standard before certification is issued.
Medical exam gloves are used during all practice sessions. Participants need to be aware of possible allergic reactions to gloves.
Personal Protective Equipment (“PPE”) knee pads recommended.
