I have been taking CPR for about 25 years, I think I have taken it at least 8 times. This was by far the best, most informative, clearly communicated class I have ever taken.

By the way, my staff agrees!

Love this CPR provider! The teacher is always on point and keeps it interesting, even after the 5th time renewing throughout my career. Highly recommend!
Becoming CPR certified was a requirement for work and I was dreading the class. I was so pleasantly surprised how interesting and fun this class was!!! The time flew by and I left the class knowing the basics of CPR! I would definitely recommend this company to anyone.
