Rockford, Ill (WIFR) -- Skills on Point, LLC and AED Essentials is open for business. Combined the two companies say they form the newest high-tech simulation lab for healthcare professionals in the stateline.
"Our goal is to be accessible to the Rockford region and that's something that's very unique and not currently present," says owner of Skills on Point John Russell.
"So pretty much anything related to medical education we can provide education on and it be unique and hands on and fun and engaging is our goal."
Each training session is recorded and lab technicians create life-like environments, giving care providers in different medical fields the opportunity to hone new skills and make mistakes without potentially catastrophic consequences.
"This is all good, valuable training to have high professional people in our community as well as to have our employees trained to address medical needs and other emergency needs in the workplace as well," said Einar Forsman, president of the Rockford Chamber of Commerce.
