Student Testimonials

 

Which ROP class are you taking?

 

 Emergency Medical Responder

What is your favorite thing about taking an ROP class?

My favorite aspect of taking an ROP class is being able to learn unique skills that would otherwise not be taught in regular courses at school. Another unique aspect of ROP classes that differentiates them from ordinary classes is the real-life application of concepts that one may be interested in. For instance, one can learn various facts from anatomy about the heart but in an ROP class such as Emergency Medical Responder, these facts come into practical use.

How do you think this class will help prepare for a future career?

I believe this class can help prepare me for a future career since I am passionate about a career in the medical field and practical life-saving procedures taught in the ROP Emergency Medical Responder would likely provide an early foundation for concepts required for a future medical career.

Why should other students consider taking an ROP class?

 One should certainly consider taking an ROP class because it can help provide an early real-life introduction into a career field one is interested in pursuing.

What is an interesting experience or activity that you really enjoyed during this class?

An interesting experience I really enjoyed during this class was the "American Heart Association CPR Certification" day. We learned how to administer Cardiopulmonary resuscitation using mannequins on adult patients as well as children and infants. It was really interesting for me, as following it I would be equipped with the essential skill that could be used in a medical emergency situation if required.

 BITA 1 has helped me find the issues and show me how to properly solve them by understanding how they might occur.

What is an interesting experience or activity that you really enjoyed during this class?

An interesting experience was building a board where I had the choice to make a pattern which came out really nice at the end. It became a present for my stepmom and now she always asks what I am building next!

Why should other students consider taking an ROP class?

Students should consider taking an ROP class because it helps prepare you for the challenges you might face in the future and help you be able to find the answers to them.
