Customer Reviews


"First, it was a pleasure to meet you.

Secondly, your class really was good. Of course not being in class all day is great. The price was in with everyone else's price structure. The equipment was top-rated equipment. The side information (handouts, and support information other than actual instruction) was interesting and enlightening.

However, I want you to know that the best part was keeping it focused on actual CPR instruction. I was assuming that it would escape me like all classes. Contrary to that thought, numerous times I've thought chin back, pinch nose, 2 breaths. 30 and 2. One cycle before calling 911 for infants. I'm very clear on what to do. For someone with concentration issues, you repeated the basic instructions over and over and didn't clutter the brain with a zillion other artifacts. Thank you."

"I wanted to let you know that less than a week from taking your renewal course, I hopped a plane with some of my fellow nursing school graduates for the Dominican Republic. Only five minutes after arriving for our first day on the beach, we were pulling a local out of the ocean after he had a seizure and aspirating quite a bit of sea water. We had to perform CPR and needless to say I was grateful it was so fresh in my memory. Just thought you would be interested in knowing about this surreal experience. Thanks again for the class!"
