Items to note: The spreadsheet for ECEB and ECSB are the same but the number of questions on the exam for each course is different- 30 for ECSB and 28 for ECEB – so we made kind of a hybrid type 30 question test and could not enter that onto the ECEB spreadsheet. I will send both spreadsheets. We understand that if we teach a combined course then we report it as 2 courses but there was not a ECSB spreadsheet. It is challenging to find material in Spanish for HBB 2.0 and the Essential Care courses.

Ideas for improvement: Need to decide when combing these courses (Essential Care) how to do the exam and the spreadsheet.

Appropriateness of participants and how you handled this: The participants were by and large great. They were sometimes on their phones a lot. Punctuality was also a problem, but we managed.

Our team of myself, Jane Gilden, Peg Arnett, and Margaret Moore taught a total of five classes.  We have previously taught in San Cristobal Health Clinic and Gualan Health Clinic where low risk deliveries are done by Nurses. Both clinics have our HBB poster posted in the delivery room. Nurses have reported that they have used the skills of HBB to resuscitate newborns.  Traditional Birth Attendants are referred to as Midwives in Guatemala.  We had refresher class for two TBA's and were pleased that they have retained their skills. The TBA's were sharp, and lliterate and rural.July 16: Hotel Atlantico in Santa Cruz,             20 Firemen from five StationsJuly 17: Gualan Fire Station #52           11 Firemen from three StationsJuly 18: San Cristobal Health Clinic            4 TBA's             3 student TBA's            Class started with 4 more TBS's (4 left for funeral, 1 for a delivery)July 19: San Augustin Health Clinic            1 MD            2 TBA's, 3 student TBA's            4 NursesJuly 21: Gualan Health Clinic            3 TBA's            5 Nurses            5 Red Cross Workers - Guatemalan
