CPR and First Aid Certification

While living in New York it is one of my goals to get certified in everything that I can.  I know that once I leave New York there will not be as much available to me. Last friday I took a 5 hour course to get my CPR and First Aid Certification.  I was certified a long time ago but didn't renew it until now. What I didn't realize was how much all of it changes every couple years. As a dance teacher, especially as someone starting their own business, I think this certification is a must.  You never know what could happen and I would never want to be in a position where I didn't know what to do if one of my students was hurt or not feeling well. 

I looked on the Dance Teacher Magazine website and they have an article and some tips on why all dance educators should be CPR and First Aid Certified. Check it out!
