Yesterday I did my bls with Carlos. AMAZING INSTRUCTOR. I've learned a lot. By far the best CPR class I've been to. He will make you think and use your brain. He's not one of those instructors who do there job cause it's a pay check. He is passionate about educating anybody who wants to learn...MUST TRY HIM I PROMISE YOU IT WILL BE WORTH IT. $45 FOR STUDENTS AND 50 FOR NON STUDENTS. PRICE LESS FOR THE EXPERIENCE...

Renewed my BLS certification with First Coast CPR and I couldn't be happier. I completed the e-learning component of the BLS at home and came in to perform the skills portion in the classroom. Rachel was an excellent instructor and gave me real-time feedback during my CPR performance. I now feel much more confident in my life saving skills. Thank you!

Highly recommend First Coast CPR for all CPR/AED/Lifesaver courses. The staff is truly knowledgeable, helpful and has so much experience. Often times the material in these classes is redundant and boring, but First Coast CPR really strives to keep you engaged.

Very happy with their work. BLS/CPR class was fun and well-organized; the instructor Carlos was animated and knowledgeable. Good communication via email before the class and great about answering questions during the class. I would definitely work with them again.

Best bls CPR class I've taken. Carlos was the instructor. He was very knowledgeable and funny. Class practice on material we're interesting and made the class more realistic. Great teacher. I would recommend any of his classes to anyone looking to have a fun interactive time learning or recertifying CPR or any other class he offers. I never say this but I am very impressed. Will be taking all my recertification s with First Coast.

I did the online module and then did my skills check in person with Carlos.He worked with me from step one, the automated system didn’t send me my link for my module right away and Carlos helped me through it.For my skills portion, he helped me through and gave me great feedback. I will be returning and will recommend.Very helpful to have classes in Fernandina and Jacksonville. Thank you!

The class size was reasonable, the educator was personable and the resources were appropriate for this setting. The material was covered in a systematic easy to follow fashion which made the learning environment comfortable. I would certainly recommend First Coast CPR to others.

Over 20 years I have had to go thru CPR, etc classes. 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.

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.

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.

Great instructor - not over the top like some - short and to the point especially because most were renewing their certifications...

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.

My first CPR class was amazing!! If you’re nervous about taking it for the first time, don’t be! My instructor was Rachel B and she was the best. 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.
It is a awesom class with Ms. Rachel Austin. You really learn how to do basic life support. She makes you laugh and feel comfortable. I recommend this class to anyone, you'll enjoy it for sure!!!!

Rachel was the instructor for the class with Karina working as a training instructor. They exhibited a passion and enthusiasm for the lesson that grabs your attention and is completely contagious. The subject is easy to follow and well presented. You leave feeling like you are ready for any emergency that could occur. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs the certification or just wants to make sure that you are able to help any family or loved ones during a crisis.

On Jan. 12, 2019, I had to renew my BLS and was not looking forward driving to Jacksonville and sitting through a 4-5 hr. class on a Sat. 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! I would recommend the company and Nicole to anyone I come across.It will be my pleasure to see you in two years!Sincerely,Therese Morgan

I took this course this week with Carlos filling in at the last minute for instruction. I have taken numerous CPR courses over the years as an RN and this was thoroughly enjoyable and informative. Carlos has a great sense of humor and I will start singing "Sweet Home Alabama" to myself if I am in another code situation! Only hope that I do not use his "safe situation" maneuver around other people!Totally recommend this place.

Carlos always keeps us engaged, I like how this class puts you in realistic situations instead of just doing book work. I feel I will recall these steps more than if I had sat and studied a book. Instead we got up and moved about.

First Coast CPR did a GREAT job with our BLS re-certification. We had a large group of 39 and Carlos was able to get us all through the training very professionally and efficiently. This is the second time our group has used First Coast CPR for re-certification and we highly recommend them.
