COVID-19 Policies at Southeastern School of Health Sciences

At Southeastern School of Health Sciences, we recognize you may have concerns and indecision about whether or not to attend a group class.  We know many of our students require a certification for employment purposes and it is difficult to balance these work requirements with concerns about personal safety. We find ourselves in the position of continuing to provide our services while doing everything we can to minimize risk to our clients, instructors, and staff.    

We’d like to take a moment to share some of the things we are doing to best serve our students, care for our staff, and at the same time be responsible members of our community.

  • Southeastern School of Health Sciences can provide blended learning for any of our classes. You complete online training at home, then come to our location for a one-on-one skills evaluation. Email for details:  
  • Our classrooms allow for safe social distancing between students throughout the class. 
  • All students in our CPR classes will be provided an individual pocket mask with a one-way valve. 
  • While Southeastern School of Health Sciences has had no reported COVID-19 infections in our staff or clients, we have asked any staff exhibiting symptoms of any respiratory illness or fever to stay home and notify their physician. 
  • We have asked our instructors to assist students with Social Distancing recommendations (i.e., limiting contact of people) in all of our classes.
  • We have implemented a policy to require all students to wash their hands upon arrival to class, frequently during class, and at the end of each class. We are providing hand sanitizer for our students for use throughout our classes. 
  • Disinfectant wipes will be available to students for equipment cleaning after class and as requested.  
  • We ask that any student exhibiting symptoms of any respiratory illness or fever stay home and notify their physician.   Email to have your registration placed on our “unscheduled list” and reschedule to a future date when your are feeling well, are symptom free, and have been cleared by your physician.
  • We are making changes to all our programs to minimize risk; this includes keeping class size to 8 students or fewer, and modifying skills practice during class so that student contact is almost eliminated. Students who do not feel comfortable breathing into the practice manikins during “mouth to mouth” portion of the class are excused from this requirement; we will not require it in order to pass any skills tests at this time (individual pocket mask will be provided for every student participating in a CPR class at Southeastern School of Health Sciences).  
  • Additionally, if anyone wants to transfer their enrollment at any time before class, we will gladly move you to a class date in the future, or, to our “unscheduled list” if you do not have a new date in mind. 
  • We expect that guidance from federal, state and local agencies may quickly change over the approaching weeks. We will continue to monitor closely and be flexible in adjusting our operations to prioritize the health and safety of our students and our staff. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we will comply with all local, state, and federal mandates as well as the recommendations provided by the American Heart Association.  
 We realize that you have many choices when it comes to where to obtain your training. Thank you for choosing Southeastern School of Health Sciences and for being a responsible part of our community.
