NORFOLK – The Allied Health Department at Northeast Community College has scheduled another Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) class in September.
The course (HLTH 5500/18F & CRN #60131) will be held Wednesday and Thursday, September 5 and 6, from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. in the Nebraska Room at Faith Regional Health Services, 2700 W. Norfolk Avenue in Norfolk.
This course encompasses knowledge and techniques which are utilized in the definitive management of a cardiac arrest or similar life-threatening emergency.

Completion of this program is based on criteria established by the American Heart Association. Pre-course requirements include review of manual and completion of ACLS pre-course online self-assessment test. Participants are asked to print their test score and bring it to class, along with their current Basic Life Support CPR card.
Cost of the class is $160. A book is available in the Hawks Shop in the Northeast Student Center.

WEST POINT – Northeast Community College in West Point will offer a new class soon to help toddlers develop their musical skills.
Mommy & Me Sing (HORC 5150/18F & CRN #60275) will be held three consecutive Thursdays, September 6-20, from 5:30-6:20 p.m. in the preschool room at St. Paul’s Lutheran School, 325 N. Colfax Street, in West Point.
Children are born with skills to excel in music, but this will diminish if the child is not exposed to different music techniques. According to leading early childhood researchers, most musical skills are learned from birth to the age of nine, when they establish their sense of pitch and rhythm. In this class, mom and their toddlers will learn simple songs, continuous movements, how to keep a beat and rhymes to help develop their skills.
The course is suitable for children ages two to pre-kindergarten.
Cost for the course, with Emma Stokely the instructor, is $15.
