Doug and Deanna Morris
No Stress Training
Fayetteville, GA

The class will be an official American Heart Association certification course for Healthcare Provider BLS and ACLS. Successful completion will be documented with the AHA’s new ecard system (the ecard format is now mandated by AHA).
Your class gets right into the certification process. We will start out with skills verification for BLS (CPR), then review the advanced practice protocols and pharmacology (bradycardia, tachycardia, acute coronary syndrome, cardiac arrest, and post-resuscitation care). After a short break, we will practice these protocols in an interactive scenario-based learning environment that invites the opportunity to ask questions and fine-tune your approach to the ACLS patient. The class is completed with the certification exams for ACLS and BLS. Recertification is a 4 hour course.
Deanna Morris is a full-time educator and is responsible for coordinating and instructing the company’s class material. She also spent 15 years with the fire department in Henry County, Georgia, serving as the first female operations officer in that department. She has worked in a variety of medical environments, including several years in one of the busiest emergency departments in Georgia. Deanna has participated in hundreds of actual cardiac arrests and resuscitations and brings a practical foundation to the ACLS concepts.
Doug Morris started his medical career in 1982 as an Army combat medic. He left active military duty and joined the fire department in Fayette County in 1986 and works there today as a Battalion Chief. In that 36-year span, he has participated in thousands of cardiac infarctions and arrests. He has worked in busy emergency departments, critical care units, flight medical services, and taught hundreds of American Heart Association classes.
