I had Rachel as an instructor and she made the class educational, effective and fun. As long as I am in the area I plan to use First Coast CPR for all my future healthcare certification and re-certification needs.read more

Our instructor Chris M. engaged the class without intimidation and actually made learning the skills fun and seamless. The time passed by so quickly it hardly seemed like we were there almost 4 hours. The instructions were so clear and concise , that even after a few years of lapsed certification and changes, I was able to Ace the written exam on the first attempt! I highly recommend this course to all that need this level of certification!!!read more

I took ACLS at the first Coast CPR and was amazed by the instructor teaching style and knowledge.

I would take PALS and any class with her in a heartbeat.read more

The most unorganized, unprofessional business I’ve ever inquired services from. I was called back by a Rachel who asked me to hold immediately, very short and rude. Who does that?! Then once I think she’s back on the line I proceed to try to get a word in and I’m cut off again and then can’t figure out if she’s now talking to me or her students in the classroom! Who teaches a class and calls people back at the same time? When talking to potential customers and especially teaching a CPR course it’s of upmost importance that communication is prioritized to one or the other. Get it together! I wouldn’t use them is they were only CPR certification in NE Florida. Seek certification elsewhere!read more

Much to my surprise, this was not the usual humdrum class that I previously have experienced. Our instructor for the day, Nicole, was hands down the best! She was personable, professional and very knowledgeable!She knows how to teach and instruct in a way that kept everyone engaged and involved! She was AWESOME!I can actually say I really enjoyed the class and l even learned a few new things!Thank you First Coast CPR, you provided excellent teaching tools and one skilled and AWESOME instructor!

Nikki is an awesome instructor for somebody who is new to CPR or not regardless I have taken BLS twice now for work and while I was in school I found this place by googling CPR Classes in JaxAnd this place pop up,it is hard to get renew on BLS when you work all week and only have free time on the weekends.I highly highly recommend this place and Nikki as a BLS instructor. For most people who have taken this course before know it is extremely boring and not fun at all. But she kept the class entertain with her real life story’s and her jokes.Hopefully she is there when it is time to renew mine in 2021 cause I will be for sure doing it at FIrst Coast CPR and will for sure request Nikki as my instructor if she does ever leave First Coast CPR will lose some people for sure. She is very knowledgeable and you can see that she has a heart to teach people about BLS.read more

So my class was with Rachel A, honestly she made it really fun! I enjoyed it so much but not only that, I feel that I learned such important material. I feel more confident in myself to do CPR and I also feel a lot more safer. I’m not too much on edge for not knowing what to do incase something were to happen. I recommend that if you have the opportunity to go get certified here, do it, you won’t regret it! I am trying to get my husband and close family to go do it now too, it is such an important skill to have and knowing something like this can really change the outcome of a situation drastically.read more

Incredible clear informative information while making everything relatable! I feel very prepared after receiving my certification from her! Highly recommend first timers or even a recertification individual to her class.read more

Nicole H. made getting recertified simultaneously fun and educational. The vibe was great and Brandi was a champ at getting everyone checked in. If I had to make a suggestion, it would be better time management. The confirmation email stated to arrive 15 minutes prior to class if I needed to pay before class began (it was 4 of us). However, when I arrived there was a note posted stating the door would be opened 5 minutes prior to class beginning. So, not only did the class begin approximately 30 minutes late but also rather than ending at 3 class ended at 4. Otherwise, I would HIGHLY recommend First Coast CPR.read more

I attended this class 5 and a half months ago and it was all worth it I needed my CPR certification for ChildCare employment I will be coming back very soon to register as an instructor. Mr. Carlos is a great instructor get you in there and out hands on experience and he will actually make you think outside of the box as well as the inside to prepare you before an actual situation occur. The class was amazing fun and exciting from the beginning and end. He is not someone who is looking to get paid quick and be done with the training. When I tell you this man lead the class and teach you from the beginning to the end he does 100% he makes the class unbeatable and fascinating! I will recommend anybody to attend first coast CPR its worth it!!! Two weeks after receiving my CPR my son choked on some food he is only 5 years old and I actually had to perform CPR on my son. I was panicking on the inside and yes afraid however I couldn't allow my worse fears to get in the way of being a professional to save my son life and most important as his mother. This is why I'm so glad and bless to have taken this course. Would I have not know anything about cpr, my son Eddie life would not be saved thank you Mr Carlos.read more

Our instructor, Nikki, was HILARIOUS, and her co-trainer, Nicole, was helpful, caring, and together they made sure that every participant in a large class was on point and able to pass. 4 hours did not seem that long at all with this team and I feel confident with the knowledge I left with today.read more

Took BLS/CPR yesterday and loved it! My instructor, Heather, was amazing! She kept the class moving at the perfect pace and presented the information in an easy-to-understand format. As a registered nurse on a working hiatus to raise my kids, it had been 8 years since my last BLS course and I was so nervous but I was pleasantly surprised by the end of the class. I felt very comfortable with my skills and confident that I could pass the test and even perform BLS in the unfortunate circumstance that it was necessary.read more

He's not one of those instructors who do there job cause it's a pay check.
