Tips for Optimizing your Zoom-call / CPR Skills Test-out Experience
- If you have never used Zoom before (we’re all learning new things this year) please try it out once you receive the meeting link in your email. That way you’re not waiting for downloads and installation at the time your video call is supposed to begin.
- Make sure you know how to turn on your microphone.
- Make sure you know how to turn on your camera.
- As much as it is possible, find a quiet, well-lit place to be while on the video call. Loud noises (dogs barking, kids, etc.) hurt our ears, too.
- Relax – you’ve already passed your exam. We will not be trying to trick you! The purpose of the video call is to talk through life-saving scenarios together and allow you to ask questions with a live instructor, and demonstrate your know-how and your CPR skills.
- Show up! Don’t waste our time or take opportunities away from other people by scheduling a video call / CPR skills test-out with us and not showing up to it. We understand that emergencies happen and that you can’t control everything. If you can’t make it – reschedule. No shows are “no bueno.”
- Be on time! We do many of these video CPR skills test-out calls everyday and so we need to start on time so we can end on time. If you are late, it may cause stress for both of us.
- Just be yourself. We’re people, too, and we like to smile and be friendly. If you have a good recipe to share, or a good knock-knock joke, we’re all ears.
