Hey IEMS!

 
The CPR-I application is now up on the website under the documents tab. It is due by February 12th at 6 PM via email to iems.edu@gmail.com. More information about the position and the training process can be found at the beginning of the application. If you have any questions, please email me at carras2@illinois.edu or the CPR Education Officer at cpr.iems.edu@gmail.com 
 
These instructors are responsible for teaching new members the theory and practical skills of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), rescue breathing, and choking management for adults, children, and infants at the Healthcare Provider level.

This is a unique way to become a leader in IEMS, and your teaching may give someone the skills and knowledge necessary to make a difference in a patient’s life.
