These classes are offered at Richmond Training Concepts in Richmond, Virginia. For the past nine years, it has been offering premier CPR and first aid instruction to employees and healthcare practitioners within and around the state.

Individuals and organizations can train in Spanish on American Safety and Health Institute-certified classes, including CPR and automated external defibrillator training and Basic First Aid.

The company also offers a 10- or 30-hour Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training course for individuals who want to acquire their Department of Labor OSHA completion card. In addition, it offers Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) certification for employees who need to meet their HAZWOPER compliance requirements. Trainees can choose from a 40-, 24-, or an eight-hour program.

These classes can be useful for about half a million Spanish speakers in the state. Virginia has over 8.5 million people, according to the latest Census data. Out of that number, more than 596,000 people or 7% of the adult population speaks Spanish.

According to the company, its instructors come from diverse backgrounds, including law enforcement, fire departments, and emergency medical services. These instructors have all had field experience, which means that students will learn about the best practices used in the field.

Richmond Training Concepts holds weekly classes at its training center. For company-wide training, it can hold classes at the client’s location. Classes can accommodate five to 50 trainees.

The company has also adopted the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with regard to conducting classes amid the coronavirus pandemic. Face masks, hand hygiene, gloves, and social distancing are part of the precautions done in each class.

“Richmond Training Concepts sets itself apart by providing training that can be applied in the field, and not just theories,” a company spokesperson said. “These practical training programs are delivered in a laid-back and non-intimating atmosphere where everyone can feel welcomed and comfortable.”
