Code One was excited to host Fox 61 news at our East Hartford, CT training center on April 15th, 2021!
Our team showed host Jimmy Altman how our BEACON platform has helped people continue training during the pandemic. The reality is that even in the middle of a pandemic, people still suffer cardiac related emergencies.
With BEACON, students are able to take the American Heart Association training online at their convenience. After completing the online portion students then schedule an in person skills appointment on our BEACON platform. The big difference here is the technology being used.
How is BEACON Different?
Instead of a typical classroom scenario filled with students and manikins, students are alone in the room. They meet with a live instructor via video conference who’s able to control the manikins that provide real-time feedback. The innovative manikins combine technology from Laerdal and RQI to create a system with the most advanced CPR feedback to date.
With the help of a couple of our EMT students and our own Kori Burz, Code One was able successfully demonstrate for Fox 61 News the power of adaptive learning and real-time feedback for CPR training. The unique combination of these two programs means students can complete their training in a safe, effective way. The system also provides them with greater accuracy than traditional manikins.
The ability to connect remotely and control the scenarios for students provides a unique learning experience. Founder and Director of Code One, Richard Shok was able to participate live as the instructor from our Roanoke, Virginia training center. Fox 61 host Jimmy Altman was able to ask him questions and learn more about how the BEACON platform came about during the pandemic.
