This was a great training. The instructor was very informative. She kept the class engaged and was enthusiastic about the materials that she shared. This was the most interesting and well organized CPR/First Aid class that I have attended in quite a while. I highly recommend this training to others.

The instructors I had (Nikki & Tina) are great. They are hands on and enthusiastic. The time flew by and I enjoyed the class (BLS). I continue to renew my BLS with First Coast CPR because they make the experience enjoyable. Thank you, see you in 2 years 😉

Carlos was very motivated with getting the class involved hands on. It helped me to retained important steps by getting up and moving. Pairing off in pairs with a classmate made the simulation come real. Carlos was very helpful and I very appreciative with his method of training.

This class is the best hands on CPR/AED class I have ever been to in my 10 years of being certified. Carlos is amazing and knows how to keep you awake and intrigued. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who needs it.... Which is everybody.

Carlos, the instructor instructed the most exciting CPR, 1st Aid, & AED training I have ever experienced.I laughed so .much as I learned even when I was the subject of the joke. It was a mandatory class for my job and it was worth my time to attend.

The class was fun and also the most informative CPR courses I have attended. I feel like a learned and will retain more from this class than from any other CPR class I have taken. Carlos was funny, serious and extremely helpful. Can't wait to renew.

It feels good to come prepared for the skills test. Their online course made it easier for me to understand and practice what I've read and work them on to hands-on practice.

ATTENTION healthcare staff, child care workers, and anyone who just wants to be prepared ….. this was actually a FUN class! Anyone in a field required to have a BLS CPR and/or ACLS certification, has spent countless hours of the same instructions and dated video’s, with a few revisions of compression counts, breathing, etc. If you're awake long enough to pass your practice skills on the “dummy”, you didn’t become one! Carlos kept everyone engaged with laughs in the right areas, but held your attention when serious points were addressed. The equipment is modern and intuitive, where it determines adequate compression pressure, time intervals, as well as positioning for good airway assessment. I’ve learned something new every time I’ve been there and have taken BLS CPR for over ten years, in two different states! This was my second session with First Coast and with BLS, CPR/AED, ACLS, etc. class options, I don’t see any good reason to go anywhere else. There are even online options (with a 30 minute in-person skills session) for those too busy to do it fully in house. They have a motto “ We are more than just a class, we are a Hero Training Center” and they truly bring that to every class they teach. Bravo Carlos (with a standing ovation) for thinking outside the AHA instructors box to make learning retainable and fun! Book classes online and get a discount for return attendees!
