Columbus is located in Ohio and has been the state capital since 1816 and is currently the county seat of Franklin County. This highly populated city is faced with several health concerns. Obesity rates in Columbus are extraordinarily high, with an adult obesity rate of 30.5%, with 26.4% of the population admitting that they receive no physical activity at all. The adolescent obesity rate is also high, with 12.4% of children considered obese. A recent study indicated that binge drinking is a concern at the local universities, with 63% of college students participating in "high-risk drinking." This number, although very high, indicates a 15% decrease since 2007. Columbus also has a moderate rate of poverty, with 14.5% of the population living below the poverty line, 18.7% of whom are under 18 and 10.9% over the age of 65.
Given the high rate of obesity, poverty and high-risk (binge) drinking among college students, medical professionals in Columbus are strongly urged to obtain CPR, First Aid and BLS (Basic Life Support) certification. These critical qualifications for EMTs, RNs and other medical personnel are vital in order to serve a community with high risk health concerns. Columbus area medical professionals can certify, or recertify easily with "CPR Select's" flexible, quality online training programs.

Columbus metropolitan area, which is comprised of Delaware, Fairfield and Franklin Counties, was named for explorer Christopher Columbus and is nicknamed "The Biggest Small Town in America." Columbus is the largest metro area in Ohio. With a metropolitan population of over 2 million people in 223.1 square miles, Columbus is the most-populated metropolitan area in Ohio and the 32nd most populated city in the nation. The climate is humid continental/humid subtropical with hot, muggy summers and cold, dry winters. The city receives some light snow, but not much compared to other large cities. The city has a low prevalence of severe weather, but is occasionally subject to thunderstorms, lightening, flooding and hail.
Incorporated in 1812, Columbus used to be a dense forestland that was commonly used for hunting. When the National Road reached the city in 1831, it allowed many European immigrants to come to the city, increasing the population and bringing economic prosperity to the city. With so many immigrants, the city was divided into two ethnic enclaves, with the Germans in the southern-part of the town and the Irish to the north. In 1850 the first railroad to enter Columbus, the Columbus and Xenia Railroad, greatly increased the traffic in the area and boosted the economy. The Civil War and World War I also served to greatly increase the economy.
The economy of Columbus is largely comprised of government, education, energy, banking, insurance, fashion, steel, clothes, retail and technology. Defense, logistics and aviation are also vital to the economy, as is healthcare, hospitals and medical research. It was voted the "7th Beat Place to do Business" and is home to 5 Fortune 500 companies, including Big Lots.
"Arch City," aptly named for the dozens of wooden arches across multiple roads that used to provide electricity to streetcars, has a rich culture and amazing architectural structures, including the Greek Revival-style State Capital building and the art deco-style Ohio Judicial Center. The Ohio Statehouse, built in 1839, is constructed entirely of limestone and was laid by prison labor gangs. Notable tourist attractions include the Franklin Park Conservatory, Columbus Museum of Art, Center for Science and Industry (COSI), Inniswood Metropolitan Gardens, Olde Town East and Kelton House Museum and Garden, dedicated to Victorian life. Annual events include the Annual All-American Quarter Horse Congress and the Ohio State Fair.

It was very helpful and descriptive.
It was very quick and easy the exam definitely challenged me on if I knew the material or not.
Awesome service! I would most likely recommend this to someone that needs to renew their CPR.
