Excellent facility for the courses. Clean and comfortable. The instructor we had (Heather) was very approachable and knowledgeable. Sequence of events were timely with no wasted time. Very efficient class and presented in a really easy to recall way. The mannequins were great too, as was the hands on experience. I highly recommend First Coast CPR.

I highly recommend First Coast CPR 😁

It's a class everyone should take. Saves Lives
12:25 15 Apr 19
Great class, wonderful instructors
18:28 13 Apr 19
First Coast CPR did a GREAT job with our BLS re-certification. We had a large group of 39 and Carlos was able to get us all through the training very professionally and efficiently. This is the second time our group has used First Coast CPR for re-certification and we highly recommend them.
04:08 10 Apr 19
Cpr Instructor Carlos is a mess...lol he'll keep you rolling!!!
02:43 14 Mar 19
I took the CPR & First Aid Class on 3/10/19. I was amazed to see how much has changed since my last certification. Rachel A and Rachel B were phenomenal coaches/trainers. We had lots of hands-on practice on the mannequins. We even had a live interactive mock scenario to practice skills learned in the session. As an International Bestselling Author, I’ll be traveling a lot and these valuable skills learned can be life-saving. Thank you Rachel to the 2 power👍🏽😎💥🎊

I took both CPR and first aid training today at the Philips Hwy location. Chris was the instructor and did such a great job. The multiple hands on practice with mannequin was so helpful and I feel very equipped to handle an emergency. The facility is very nice and the snacks were much appreciated. Great job!!!!
02:49 20 Jan 19
Nikki is an awesome instructor for somebody who is new to CPR or not regardless I have taken BLS twice now for work and while I was in school I found this place by googling CPR Classes in JaxAnd this place pop up,it is hard to get renew on BLS when you work all week and only have free time on the weekends.I highly highly recommend this place and Nikki as a BLS instructor. For most people who have taken this course before know it is extremely boring and not fun at all. But she kept the class entertain with her real life story’s and her jokes.Hopefully she is there when it is time to renew mine in 2021 cause I will be for sure doing it at FIrst Coast CPR and will for sure request Nikki as my instructor if she does ever leave First Coast CPR will lose some people for sure. She is very knowledgeable and you can see that she has a heart to teach people about BLS.
17:01 28 Dec 18
Very organized and professional class. Highly recommend to healthcare workers and public for certification.

12:38 15 May 18
Took BLS/CPR yesterday and loved it! My instructor, Heather, was amazing! She kept the class moving at the perfect pace and presented the information in an easy-to-understand format. As a registered nurse on a working hiatus to raise my kids, it had been 8 years since my last BLS course and I was so nervous but I was pleasantly surprised by the end of the class. I felt very comfortable with my skills and confident that I could pass the test and even perform BLS in the unfortunate circumstance that it was necessary.
05:29 07 May 18
I'm an RN. I did my initial BLS through First Coast, and it was fairly painless. So, a while later, after passing the online portion of the AHA ACLS course,...

I have been to many CPR classes during my life and this was by far the best! In the past I have always been staring at my watch wondering how much longer I had to sit in class but this class was not only very hands on for learning but so much fun! Carlos did such an excellent job entertaining with his CPR stand up comedy that I couldn’t believe how fast time went by! Great price, wonderful learning experience and super fun...couldn’t ask for more! Really enjoyed it...thank you!
12:33 18 Oct 17
Thanks for the great BLS class! I enjoyed all the hands on learning so we could put the information we had learned into practice! I will definitely be back for more classes!
13:20 04 Oct 17
Renewed my BLS certification with First Coast CPR and I couldn't be happier. I completed the e-learning component of the BLS at home and came in to perform the skills portion in the classroom. Rachel was an excellent instructor and gave me real-time feedback during my CPR performance. I now feel much more confident in my life saving skills. Thank you!
14:17 08 Sep 17
By far the best BLS class.The instructor Cherie was awesome which made the class fun, informative and full of laughs.

Rachael was an amazing instructor. She taught a class of 10 teachers and had the patience of a saint. Thank you � Highly recommended.

Took the BLS for Healthcare Providers and I thoroughly enjoyed the class. It was more hands on and the videos are updated from the last time I took the class. Heather was a great instructor and she was super funny!!!Side note: consider adding "No Kids Allowed inside the classroom and/or no unattended children allowed." I got upset when the lady got upset at Heather about her sick child. The nerve of her!!!

A great place to re-certify for my CPR. I am a yoga teacher and I like to have this certification just in case. The facility was clean and organized. Everyone was very nice and knowledgable!
12:42 23 Mar 17
What a thorough, well-taught class. I did the hybrid class so my First Aid training was online (it is a lot of information so have plenty of time when you start it). When I arrived at the class, Carlos was ready to test me and give constructive feedback. I was really impressed with his patience and expertise in teaching CPR/AED. He connected with each student and was able to correct us in a way that didn't condemn us. His use of humor was well-timed and appreciated!
13:24 10 Mar 17
I kept calling everyday trying to decide which day I wanted to take the class and Mr. Carlos was very helpful and patient each time with me made the class last night and Mr. Andrew was an awesome teacher so if you have never had, or in need of learning CPR please get with them for training. Thanks fellows and my classmates were awesome as well.

In class right now great atmosphere and enjoying classmates and learning how to save lives all at the same time
13:51 02 Feb 17
This was by far the best CPR class I have ever taken, the atmosphere was a true classroom setting, and the instructor (Rachel) was on point in pointing out the resent changes so when you walk out the door, you recall them out loud. She also made it fun with a little Bee Gee action. I did this class on 1/31/17 and can't wait to go back, like seeing a good movie again. Thanks

00:25 07 Jan 17
I became CPR certified at FC CPR and then went on to take the instructor's class, which is a hard to find class in our area!

Best CPR class I've been to in the 42 years I've been an RN! Great mix of lecture and hands-on. Great facilities, snacks and the staff are professional and knowledgeable. I was sooo pleased that they included a section on what to do with opiate overdoses since that is at epidemic proportions! VERY up-to-date and well taught!

My first time completing a CPR course since 2007. No one judge you if you make a mistake. As Andrew says, everyone is there to learn and help each other. Everyone was very helpful. Andrew, Rachel, and Carlos Rock!!!! The best CPR class. Very fun and hands on!!!! After you complete this course you will feel ready and prepared to save a life. Also, Flexible course times and days available to fit in everyones schedule.
14:01 04 Aug 16
I recently took a course at the Jacksonville location and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The teacher kept the students engaged by presenting material using verbal, visual and hands on techniques. I learned a lot and feel more confident in my CPR/AED skills.
01:25 04 Aug 16
And engaging and friendly staff is what makes their classes great! They mix up video instruction and hands on practice throughout which helps the time go by quickly, and the staff keeps it entertaining. The facility is also great, there are bathrooms, water, and snacks available. Would recommend and will return to them when my certification is up for renewal!
16:56 31 Jul 16
You guys are amazing, thank you so much for the class! I had a really good time, I came in not expecting much but was genuinely surprised with how fun it was.
14:19 31 Jul 16
I had a great experience with First Coast CPR. I came in needing the certification for work and not giving it much thought, but walked out feeling prepared and well equipped to perform high quality CPR. The facilitators were great and created an atmosphere where I felt comfortable and enjoyed learning from them. I'd highly recommend them to all!
12:04 23 Jul 16
The instructor (Andrew) was veth knowledgeable. All staff members were pleasant. Complimentary snacks and drinks! Andrew took the time to answer questions.No boredom-the class was up and active. Would highly recommend this agency to everyone.

23:07 12 Jul 16

19:21 05 Jul 16
Great class. No wasted time. Rachel (instructor) was knowledgeable, ppleasant, and answered all our questions. Carlos worked with our club to find a time that worked for our members in 2 locations. Feel much more comfortable doing CPR now and can't believe how much it has changed from years passed. Highly recommend this class for both people looking for a refresher and those who have never learned CPR before.
12:27 27 Jun 16
This was the best CPR class I ever took and I highly recommend First Coast CPR
15:49 26 May 16
