New TC Coordinator

I am happy to announce that Mitzi Raymond has been promoted to the TC Coordinator position for ERTSS. Mitzi has served as Office Manager for the last 5 years. Some of you may remember when we started ERTSS and I ran the company from a home office. We then moved to our first office on North Park Drive. We were at that location for a couple of years and then moved to our current location in August of 2005. Mitzi has been with me since 2005 and is ready for her new role as TC Coordinator for ERTSS. Along with Mitzi, Penny Hale and Amy Evans have shaped ERTSS Training Center into what it is today; a Nationally recognized Training Center for the American Heart Association. Please join me in congratulating Mitzi, Penny and Amy on a job well done.

I will be focusing my time and efforts on business development and new opportunities for ERTSS  as we continue to grow as a company.

E-Books and E-Cards

The American Heart Association has announced two new options for Student Manuals and certification Cards.
eBooks:
AHA eBooks
The AHA eBooks Store is now available at http://eBooks.heart.org. In response to many customers and volunteer requests, the AHA has created an additional way to distribute lifesaving information. These eBooks are electronic versions of AHA’s course manuals and reference materials and provide an alternative to AHA’s printed materials.
AHA eBooks: Guidance for TCs and Instructors:
Like printed manuals, each eBook is for use by a single student before, during and after class, and TCCs are responsible for making sure that every student has a book or eBook for use before, during and after class.
The AHA encourages TCCs and/or Instructors to work to amend any policies disallowing electronic devices in classrooms so that eBooks may be used in classroom settings. We understand that certain training facilities may not have Internet/Wi-F access, the AHA is also advising students, via a message on the eBooks Store, to please check with their TC/Instructor prior to purchasing eBooks to ensure that devices are allowed and supported in the classrooms.
Please note: if Internet/Wi-Fi access is not available, students may be advised to use an off-line reader to access their eBook(s) during class. For more information on this options, please see the eBooks Store FAQ at http://ebooks.heart.org/faqs
eCards:
E certification cards are here! ERTSS is one of a handful of Training Centers in the nation to participate in the eCard Pilot Program. eCards will be available to Instructors Mid-January 2015. More information coming soon!
