Excellent class! This is the first time I've ever felt like this class was made relevant for RN's working in inpatient units. It was interesting and fun not the usual "oh let me get this over with". Well worth the money.

This was by far the best CPR/First Aid training course I have had the pleasure of attending anywhere, hands down. The Instructor, Marco Raymond did an outstanding job. It was refreshing to have the course taught by someone with real life experience and not simply "book knowledge". His knowledge was exceptional and he presentations skills were fantastic. He was very comfortable with the topic/material and was able to answer any questions without any hesitation. I hope we have the good fortune of having Marco lead the next recertification.Chris TibbsCollins Aerospace

This was the best BLS class I have ever had and I have been taking BLS renewals for over 10 years. Thank you so much First Coast Training Center for an amazing experience.

First coast Training center for BLS CPR Recertification was a great experience. Carlos and Jackson kept the class entertaining and it flowed smoothly from section to section. I liked the lights on the CPR mannequins for the feedback on compression and timing. They were professional and followed Covid protocol for cleaning and distance learning. This was my second time coming here for recertification and I will return in 2 more years.

Great teachers, great facility.I've been CPR/First Aid certified for 20 years and this was the most enjoyable class I've been to. Carlos (the main facilitator) was very knowledgeable and kept the class engaged with his high energy approach. The teacher-in-training was alright and kept everything going at a good pace but obviously still pretty nervous.The facility is clean and airy. The trainers were following CDC recommendations in response to COVID-19.
