I had taken a CPR class many years ago, and I have never experienced a training such as this one. The gentleman that was giving the class was very motivated and that positive energy that he had, he projected it to all of us. I think you guys have a well trained personal that are capable of presenting this class in a very professional and fun way for people to love it. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

This was my third time attending my BLS certification/and or renewal and they continue to impress me. I love all of the new upgrades inside of the building. However, most of all I truly enjoyed my learning experience each time. Carlos and Marco both ROCK as instructors..
