The Mississippi Association of Coaches and Mississippi Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center regret not being able to host a CPR training as we have done in the past years due to the requirements of face to face hands on training required by the CPR training organizations. We also regret at this time the governing organizations are not allowing any extensions after July 1, 2020, please refer to the cards organization for details.
In order to renew or obtain your certification for the 2020 - 2022 years, you have a variety of options. Please note that each option, has a different procedure and/or cost than what you may have experienced in the past. The organization options include: American Heart Association, American Red Cross, or the National Safety Council.
To obtain your training consider these many possibilities:
- School district- Athletic Trainer, Career and Tech instructors ( health science) or JROTC instructors
- Community Emergency Responders facilities- Hospitals, Ambulance and fire departments.
- Visiting CPR organizations websites for classes near you
We hope this advice is helpful to you and again we apologize for this inconvenience.
