"I have taken many CPR/First Aid classes over the years and this was the best! I was shocked at how effective online learning could be for this material. Thanks to the skill of the trainers and their clear depth of knowledge of the material, I feel like I learned and am retaining the information better than I ever have. The recorded modules and the live sessions were all excellent, and I'm really grateful for this information!"

This is hands down the highest quality CPR course I have taken. The format is convenient and effective.  Nicole's delivery is excellent. She is enthusiastic, professional and responsive. She went the extra mile to accommodate our needs. And I didn't expect it to be so much fun! I highly recommend this course!

Virtual training can be challenging. This course was so dynamic and the way information was presenting was so interesting I felt like I was there in person! I gained so much knowledge and confidence through this course and though I don't want to have to use my new skills, I feel ready to respond if needed. Thank you!!

This class will benefit everyone! With a nursing background I was skeptical how much I would learn in this class. I was blown away with videos, they kept my attention, taught me new things, the instructor Nicole does a fabulous job teaching others to critically think in unfavorable circumstances, and her real life experiences are great to hear.
