ISU Student Experience

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Certification Course

Continuing education is very important in any field but especially in the medical and veterinary fields. To stay up to date on the latest techniques and protocols, IVS employees periodically take courses to further their education. 

In emergency veterinary medicine, our doctors and technicians often see severe cases that may require resuscitation of a pet. 

One of our technician trainers, Amanda Morrow, who completed the course had this to say, "I thought the program was well put together with a modern, inventive way of teaching/learning. I think it's an extremely beneficial program for any technician regardless of whether they're new or have been in the field a while!
