This year was my second renewal. Carlos and the whole staff did a great job in teaching the class. They make it very personable and realistic situations are discussed to apply/practice what you've learned. Highly recommend.

I have been taking BLS for over thirty years. Carlos the instructor was fun, engaging without forgetting the importance of this skill. I imagine other services and classes are just as excellent. The fee was extremely reasonable in that I did look at other places and frankly this is second to none in regards to that. The facility was clean and nice! Thank you for making my usual 2year renewal so much fun!

This class was super engaging and I learned a ton! It was very hands on, which I loved. I’ve taken previous classes where we sit there for hours watching videos but this class did not do that and it was so much better! I definitely recommend this course.
