Dumaguete Review Center

Dumaguete Review Center
April 24-26, 2009

This is our very first training conducted in Dumaguete City sponsored by Dumaguete Review Center (AMDREAM).

I have to board the early flight of Cebu Pacific just to be there on time considering that I would not be able to leave the day before. As you have noticed, I was one of the speakers on the Disaster Management Seminar in Talisay City.

The flight was very short, just less than 20 minutes and I was already in Dumaguete by 7 in the morning. I immediately proceeded to "Check inn Hotel" were I had a room reservation. The rest of my instructors will be coming shortly via Oceanjet.

The Dumaguete Review Center is just a 3-5 minutes walk from the hotel. Such a wise choice of accommodation. Moreover, the training center is within the heart of the city so there is really no problem in so far as supplies, and other needed items are concerned.

By 8:30 in the morning, I was already in the review center ready for the course.....

I was very happy with the turnout on the number of participants. Despite the short time, more than 50 participants joined the training, the review center staff really did a commendable job in coming up with such number.

I would say that the course was rather successful judging from the evaluation submitted by the participants after the course. The only thing that was affecting the training was the power failure that went suddenly during the three day course. But it was not really a problem since the staff were able to come up with an alternate venue.

Each of the participants were able to perform CPR return demonstration as well as bandaging, and emergency transportation. The Basic ECG training was also very interesting for the participants. They find it very simple and understandable.

Truly our Dumaguete Experience was very exciting considering that me and my team had ample time to explore the place. We also had time to try the different restaurants in the area as well as visit the ever famous boulevard area of Dumaguete City.

I am already excited to come back for our next scheduled course....

The moment that all of us have been waiting for is about to come. We will soon start with our ACLS training as soon as the equipments will arrive. Most likely this will be on the later part of May or early June this year.

As you may know we have been approved by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) to conduct ACLS courses. CLICK HERE for verification. The completion cards that we will issue has continuing education credits in the United States.

The rest of the team are very excited considering that this will be another milestone for all of us. I am sure that many will benefit from this program since from the very start, a lot of healthcare providers have been asking us about the course.

We are now finalizing the layout of the course in accordance with the guidelines mandated by ACEP. We will aslo offer the course to those who are interested in intubation procedure only.
