I have been chasing for years to be CPR re-certified and it has NEVER been as much fun as it was this time around. The class was GREAT, the instructor is Extraordinary & the Lessons I've learned, I now use to teach my kids CPR. I'm ALWAYS prepared with the expectations of never using it (CPR).

Attended a class last week at First Coast CPR and actually learned more than I expected to. I feel confident now too that if there is an emergency at the school where I work, I wont panic and will know what to do. The trainer was great!

This is a really great place to go to if your new job requires a BLS certification, but I also recommend it to new parents because they do a great job teaching infant CPR.
