Mandated in current 2-year training cycle 9/23-8/25.
Designed to meet the legislative mandate in HB 786 passed by the 87th Texas Legislature that amends Texas Occupations Code Chapter 1701. Cardiac Emergency Communication is designed to teach all telecommunicators how to identify when cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is needed and how to talk a caller through the process. In order to do this, a telecommunicator must first be certified in CPR training. This course does not certify a telecommunicator in CPR. Cardiac Emergency Communication meets the legislative mandate and continuing education requirements to ensure all telecommunicators are trained in responding to a caller in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA).
