What our student says about us
I had a great experience at First Coast Training Center. The BLS instructor Carlos was fun and engaging and made the class fly by. I highly recommend their...
I enjoyed my experience taking my CPR class here, I would definitely come back when it’s time for me to renew. Carlos was my instructor and did a great job keeping an upbeat vibe for the class while being attentive to everyone and making sure everyone felt included and understood. It was also good because I was able to schedule my class last minute which saved me so much stress!!
Carlos is a GREAT instructor. He explains why and how we need to conduct proper CPR and really engages his class to participate. 5 GOLD stars for him!!
I have used First Coast for CPR/First Aid training and recertification for over a decade. They are always excellent.
I have had CPR training for years and years working in the medical field, but this was by far the most hands on and enjoyable. I feel I have retained more information than I ever have before. I'm the type that can freeze up when there is an emergency but I feel like I will not after this class. David was charismatic and fun, to boot. I will be returning every two years to be recertified. Highly recommend.
David was phenomenal & engaging. Best CPR training I have ever had in all of my years of being trained. I highly recommend!
My CPR trainer: Mike is a good trainer and is very knowledgeable about what he is teaching in the CPR class. Thank you. Mike you make a person think about...
la clase fue muy buena muy entretenida lo recomiendoa todos con casos reales muy buen instructor Carlos
I highly recommend First Coast CPR! Our instructor wasted no time, and we had plenty of hands-on practice.
The young man who greeted me was very professional, warm, and welcoming. He demonstrated this with each customer that entered the building or who called on the phone. He deserves 5 stars. Great customer service is hard to come by these days.I was there for a Live Scan and didn't receive the same quality service. T. Smith, the staff person, performed the fingerprint scan. I was uncomfortable when she wrote my private data on the back of a piece of paper. Upon completion of the service, I requested my personal information be shredded. Seemingly agitated by the request, Smith stated she has access to many customers' information and is not going to do anything with mine. As that offered no comfort, I again asked for the paper to be shredded. She further stated she has something to do with the contents on the opposite side of the document and would get to it.By this time, I'm experiencing an overwhelming feeling of anxiety and disdain for the lack data security practiced for their customers. In noticing a marker on the desk, I handed it to Smith requesting her to redact my information from the back of the document laying out in the open. She haphazardly scribbled over it leaving the info exposed.At this time, I exited the building to report this to the vendor to mitigate other customers from possible security breeches such as this.Know it is the right of individuals to have control over their data. It's unfortunate I had to fight for that right with First Coast CPR.
Class was very informative. Instructor David did a wonderful jobs at training us. This has to be the best COR class I've taken! Great job, First Coast CPR!
Staff were professional yet relaxed. They made the 3 hour class interesting and fun for everyone. Many times everyone was laughing. Very good teacher/instructor.
I booked the class last minute and found the process very easy, straightforward and at a great price. The instructor, Marco Raymond, was very knowledgeable,...
Professional, knowledgeable and very organized/clean facility. They provide an array of snacks, water, soda. Lindsay was my instructor today she was FABULOUS!! she was not only hilarious but informative and welcoming. Great place.
I have taken many CPR classes over the years. This one kept me engaged the whole time and it was actually fun!!! David dispelled many myths and kept everyone on their toes. If you want a boring class this is not for you. David was very experienced and supper interactive as well as funny.
Excellent first aid training. Instructor was professional and extremely knowledgeable. Made it applicable to real world situations and easier to retain the information that was taught. I would definitely recommend for any first aid training needs.
David did our CPR class and even though I have done many CPR classes in the past, I learned allot from this one. David was amazing in his pesentation and...
Karly was so sweet and kind! This was the best CPR class I have taken. Very informative but fun. I will definitely be back with friends for my renewal.
The BLS class was great and I highly recommend, the instructor is an EMT which made her enthusiastic and informative about the material. They also send you your certification right away, which is good if this class is a requirement for you!
Instructor brought her toddler with. It was distracting that we had to keep being interrupted so she could tend to her daughter, or her tablet was too loud...
I really enjoyed the class. The instructor Tina was awesome. I loved how the class provided such a hands on experience it really made me feel confident in case I needed to give actual CPR. Definitely would recommend! 👍🏽
I did the fingerprint scan for my contractor license background check, it was super easy, the lady who did the scan was really nice, and the cost was way better than other places that I researched, I really like how they sent you reminders and kept you informed with emails or texts if any changes have been made to their schedule. This place is a must for any kind of Live Scan fingerprinting or medical training classes! I will definitely be recommending to anybody who needs these services
I have had many CPR/AED and Advance Life support classes over the years.... I would have to say this was the most detailed and thorough class I have taken. It wasn't just a class to help you get the card but a hands on experience that taught me many things that I had not learned in previous years. I would definitely recommend this class. A++++ to the instructor Carlos as well. He made the class a fun and interactive learning experience!

The instructors are amazing! I'd rather pay a few dollars & go through them rather than going through my job for the class.
This was the most fun and interactive CPR class I've been in. The entertainment made the class less awkward and more rememberable.

Tina was a very good instructor and kept our attention and was very informative and funny. I prefer coming to First Coast training center instead of my...
The class was extremely helpful very informative and exciting all in one. Our instructor was so knowledgeable and made the class fun. It didn’t feel like training, it felt like a team event . Every single trainee was engaged in the class . I want to go back !! If this class is any indication how they train I want to see what other classes are available! If you have the opportunity to train here, do it . Thank you First Coast I left there feeling like a hero !
Carlos keeps it fun and it makes it go by faster. I always renew through this company.
This is my 3rd BLS class I've taken in about 4.5 years and I have to say- I really enjoyed it (which I wasn't expecting). Carlos was my instructor and he was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. I really liked how he used upbeat songs to go along with the compressions so you could keep up with the rhythm...which helped keep me on track. This class was also pretty affordable too (compared to other establishments). I'll be back in 2 years for sure. 😁
ACLS/BLS certification. Highly recommend. Very thorough, but able to present alot of material in a very user friendly way!*****Check out their tele courses...
Excellent CPR course in a very convenient location on Amelia Island. Instructor Carlos made learning fun and I learned a lot. Highly recommend.
Super engaging instructor and course content!
Great class! The instructor was awesome and kept you into the class. The facilities were very nice and all the staff was very professional. Highly recommended.

I have been in dentistry since 1990 and this has by far been the best CPR class I have taken. All the other classes I have forgotten what to do within days. The way this class was taught I still remember what to do. Carlos was AMAZING!!!
CPR class was interactive, fun and hands on. Much thanks to instructor Carlos. My first comment after finishing the test was..." I will come again". See...
The instructor knowledgeable and energetic. The class was small so it didn't take forever to do the hands on portion.
Heather was a fantastic instructor. She was very hands on with all the students and she kept it engaging and interactive. I’ve been taking cpr classes since 2010 at various facilities or through my job and I decided to try first coast cpr and will return again in two years to renew. I feel more comfortable and better equipped after training with her.
Best CPR class I've ever taken, and I've taken a few! Carlos is an excellent instructor.
I had great experiences here. Did my first CPR/BLS course here in 2020 and had no regrets, thus went for my renewal there. Marco is a fun instructor, he made the experience a great learning 1. This is a "must try", you won't regret!! Thank you First Coast CPR!!!
After taking this CPR training I feel that I have the confidence that I need if I ever encountered an emergency with anyone!
"Awesome Class"!! This is my first time CPR/AED class at this location First Coast Training Center which location is Phillips Highway. I highly recommend to...
Awesome trainer. Carlos made it very enjoyable this was my second time going to this center. And will continue to go as long as I need to keep my CDA renewed.

Excellent training facility and they really care about your learning experience. Very kind staff. Definitely recommend!
First Coast Training Center is the best place I have been to for my BLS thus far. Carlos, I hope you never lose that enthusiasm! God definitely gifted you with a gift of teaching this information! You kept the class engaged from start to finish (which is usually hard to do for 4 hours)! The way you presented material was great! I will definitely be passing your information along to all health care providers I work with! I wish you and the business many blessings!
Good energy, thoroughly yet quickly goes over everything required
First Coast Training Center is the best place I have been to for my BLS thus far. Carlos, I hope you never lose that enthusiasm! God definitely gifted you...
Amazing place! Instructor was very personable and made the time go by really fast. I learned more in this BLS class than any other class I've taken in the past.

Great place to get your BLS certification! Carlos was our instructor and was amazing, funny, keeps your attention while educating and preparing you. He makes sure that everyone is confident and capable should the need ever present itself for this skill. He is very good at what he does and is a rather good looking, too!
Carlos is the best! He makes this training so much fun but yet informative and useful for everyone. We've been using them for the past 6 years and will...
My training with First Coast CPR was wonderful. In fact we were so engaged that time flew by. The instructor was knowledgeable and really supported the attendees during the practical portion of the training. I would highly suggest having your organization to use First Coast Training Center.
This was an awesome class the Instructor is Awesome!! There were so many real life connections throughout the training which make you feel engaged and in the moment as if you were saving someone's love one. Thank you Nikki for your time and ability to provide clear and precise training 🌞
After being a nurse for 30yrs, I actually found an enjoyable way to renew my BLS Certification!!! I left First Coast Training Center smiling from ear to ear, totally prepared to respond to any person requiring life saving CPR! Don't wait 30 years! Take my advice and schedule your class today. Even if you don't expire now- you will gain confidence and feel like you have gone to a comedy show!

I always enjoy the class when I take it here.
Clarene Johnson B.
Took this class last week. The instructor was easy to understand and patient with any questions. The class was engaging. I recommend this class.
This is the second year I have used this center for my CPR. The classes are convenient, affordable, informative and not boring!! Will use it again,!
Fast paced and I walked away feeling equipped to safely and correctly perform CPR to children and adults, as well as use an AED.
The instructor was awesome reviewing everything and the actual physical test was great.
My first coast teacher Carlos Chavez made this experience amazing! He was patient with the class, understanding and funny lol He actually made the class...
First Coast Training Center is by far the best CPR training center I have ever been to. The ability to complete an online module at home and go in for a skills session made the whole process so simple and easy. Additionally, this business is an outstanding supporter of working moms! I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to find childcare for my 2 month old and upon reaching out to First Coast Training Center, I was told that as long as she could stay quiet in her car seat or stroller for the 30 minute skills check, I could bring her with. Ultimately, I found someone to watch her for the brief time of the skills session but the flexibility and support I felt as a working mother was phenomenal and for that, First Coast Training Center will always have my business!!

We had a group of 15 people at our dental practice get CPR training from First Coast CPR. Carlos was our instructor and it was honestly the best CPR class that I've personally ever attended. Everybody else that was there had the same feedback. We hope to have him again when it's time to renew all of our certifications. He is absolutely hilarious and keeps the class engaged the entire time. The instruction was very practical and hands on which allowed all of us to work on our technique. 10/10 Recommend 🙂
Super nice people and the best cpr class I have ever attended. It was FUN...!!!! Thanks again.
Extremely informative! The facility was clean and comfortable. I definitely recommend this place for BLS/ACLS!
This training center is great ! I would definitely recommend to anybody! Center is clean and the instructors are great at what they do, they give you lots...
Absolutely amazing class!! Interactive, fun, taught well for all learning styles.
The best place for BLS or CPR training anywhere and more.Carlos is great, highly experienced and it shows. The classes are fun and informative. I wouldn't go anywhere else.. They have classes going all the time, which makes it very easy to find one that fits your schedule..
Took the CNA prep course and the CPR class, also booked my state test at this facility. I have nothing but praise for every part. Good thorough explanations, wonderfully personable and likeable instructors and all nicely paced enough that I could easily follow along despite a slight learning disability. If you want to pass the state exam in one go, you need what this place offers. Absolutely phenomenal
Chris was a great instructor! Really interactive with our class and Learned a lot. Needed to learn for the hospital job. Recommend to anyone!
Carlos was an amazing CPR instructor! He made the class really interesting. The facility was clean and organized. I'm glad I chose them to get my certification from.
Carlos is the bomb!! I’ve never had such and informative and fun class ever! I would recommend him over and over again. I was a little tired as it was at the end of the workday for our office but the energy he brought was awesome! He was attentive and had great helpful information, better and more retention than I would have had using any other class or book. The final test was great with the scenario. I will be doing my re certifications with them as long as he’s teaching! Thank you Carlos!
This was probably the best CPR class I have had. The instructor Carlos was awesome.
The class was very nice excellent excellent presentati be returning back.
Instructor was excellent. We practiced CPR sequences until we became confident with protocol. I would recommend First Coast COR to everyone. You never know when you have the opportunity to save a life. It could very well be a loved one.

This class was one of the best CPR/BLS classes that I have taken. The instructor was fun , and informative. Definetly recommend going.
I took a test online with a different service and was very upset that The state of Florida didn't accept it. I had to retake it in person at First Coast and oh my goodness... This class was everything. Our Instructor was amazing and funny and very good at what she does. So happy I took it in person just to be able to meet our instructor. The facility was immaculate, so clean and fresh. She had refreshments fresh hot coffee and cold water. The experience is highly recommended. She made the experience worth while.

Phenomenal cpr class! I really enjoyed my experience! Chris was super informative. I feel like I'm even more prepared for my career!
I had to take a BLS/CPR class for a new job and FCTC was the most recommended place, and now I see why!! Carlos was my instructor for that day and he was...
Highly recommend. I only had to do the hands on part for my BLS. Took 30 min tops. The office is very clean. They have drinks and snacks. The equipment was up to date, clean and well kept. The instructor was nice and very knowledgeable. Online sign up was easy. I will only be going here from now on.
Class was well put together with and easy to understand instructor.
Carlos was awesome! I have been coming here for recertification ( and certification) since moving to town 6 years ago.It's a bit of a drive but worth it....
They were excellent! Even after having the certification before, I still learned a lot. They did real life scenarios with audio tapes which I felt really help you prepare mentally. They played music during class that helped keep tempo with the CPR, and made it fun! Plus there is a $5 student or military discount. Definitely recommend!
Excellent course in CPR, First Aid, Blood Borne Pathogen and AED Training. I've taken this course previously and in comparison this one and this...
Highly recommend if you want to feel more confident in your skills and if you learn better with a hands on approach rather than online courses. Melissa is great at simplifying complex algorithms and providing examples of how those algorithms are actually implemented in a real practice. Relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
I really enjoyed the class. I learned some new techniques and will be ready when and if the time comes. I've already forwarded First Coast Training...

This was by far the best CPR course I have taken during my 25 years in healthcare. They made it comfortable, easy and without any stress what-so-ever. I also walked away more confident with being able to perform CPR than from any other course. The equipment was in good shape and the classroom was conducive to learning. I highly recommend First Coast Training Center.
I had an amazing experience at First Coast Training Center. I had already taken the CNA class, but was also signed up for the CPR class. It went by very quickly and was taught really well. It was really easy to remember because of the way we were taught. The energy was great in the room, and there was a lot of practice. I definitely recommend taking any classes at First Coast training. It won’t disappoint!
Great informative class. I did it with my kids and feel so much better they have taken this class. Carlos, our instructor, was one of the best teachers I have ran across. He’s makes the class enjoyable and interesting for even kids in a subject that could be very dreadful. Totally recommend. I already have friends that are signing up.
Love this place very informative!!! I recommend these classes to my friends!!!! COVID-19 safe!!!! Instructors are amazing!!!
I thoroughly enjoy the CPR courses at this facility. The instructors are always nice, and focus on making sure you have the proper technique and feel comfortable performing your skills before you leave. This was my first course since the pandemic, and their sanitation and social distancing standards were great! I highly recommend anyone in need of training, to attend the course at this facility.
Marco was an amazing teacher! He made the BLS class fun and engaging while being serious about the topic. He allowed questions and explained things so that someone who had never taken a CPR class before could understand clearly. At the end of class, I felt confident that everything he taught would stick with me. I definitely recommend First Coast!
Hey Marco!! Your class made those hours fly by so quick, I barely noticed. Class room is clean and everyone has their own equipment to work with. Also at each desk is a little step stools so you can be higher than the dummy that's on the table so you can perform comfortably in a controlled environment. The cards came extremely quick via email after training was done. Overall 10/10 experience.
I’ve taken three different certifications with this company and I have not been disappointed once. Every instructor has been knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Making the learning environment and experience exceptional. The location is easy to find and has plenty of parking. Office and classroom are clean with plenty of WORKING equipment. Schedule your next certification with them, you will NOT be disappointed.
I have been in the health field for over 30 years. This is one time I can truly say CPR class was not a total chore. The instructor, Heather, was very engaging and through. The facility was clean. Hospitality welcoming. Most of all the equipment was top notch. Also we were given key chain mouth barriers. The price can't be beat. I suggest if you have to pay for the class yourself go to First Coast Training Center. If you are a corporation, First Coast Training Center is who you should call.
Took ACLS course for the first time. The instructors, Rachel and Marco, were wonderful. They both were insanely knowledgeable about the topics covered in...
This is the best CPR/BLS class you'll ever take. Take this class if you actually want to learn the skills and feel confident in your ability to use them if...
The most effective and engaging CPR course I have ever taken (and I have to keep renewing every 2 years). Heather did an excellent job of moving at a good pace and repeating important steps in a meaningful way so that it felt easy to remember, and she had a good sense of humor. The biofeedback provided was great for learning. Impressed!
I was extremely impressed with the instructor, Marco Raymond, and the entire presentation. There were a few techinical glitches in the beginning that were...
Had a great time, Chris was funny and informative and definitely will be recommending to my friends! Best BLS I took!
Chris was AWESOME. super convenient and easy to schedule
Michael T.K. Ayers
Thorough yet straightforward. Took the online module and then the hands on portion. Great for beginners or those with years of experience taking classes. Would definitely come here again for my next certification.

I was not sure I could find a hands-on CPR class during Covid-19, but I did through a referral. I was joyfully surprised how clean and attractive the...
The instructor Tina was great. She was very knowledgeable and kept it simple but knowledgeable. I would recommend First Coast CPR training.
From start to finish, my experience with First Coast CPR was exceptional. Carlos was incredibly helpful and supportive during a scheduling issue. I enjoyed the online portion of the BLS course, and felt it adequately prepared me for the skills portion, and Marco was very thorough and engaging during the hands-on skills class! I left feeling well-prepared to handle an emergency should the need arise! Thank you First Coast CPR; I’ll see you in two years! 😊
Great instructor; made my 15th time at BLS interesting. Easy to schedule online. Nice that each person has their own dummy's.
I have attend training classes at the First Coast Training Center for the last 6 years, and have had excellent experiences. They were very friendly, professional, and skilled in their abilities. Being a former CPR instructor, I rate them a 10. Additionally, the class was individualized since COVID-19, but still everything was covered, stressed, and reviewed prior to the exam. I aced the test, because the instructors were awesome. Thank you for such a positive experience.

The education content, hands-on teaching, and demonstrations definitely gave me the confidence to save someone's lifeMarco was Amazing, he’s great at what he does...keep up the good and I’d strongly recommend him again!!! Thank you so much First Coast Training Center for an amazing experience.
The safety measures taken due to Covid were excellent!!! They lay out and organization in the training room was very professional. Heather the instructior did an amazing job demonstrating and explaining each step. I definitely recommend this class!
Excellent instructor and very informative BLS class. Took proper COVID precautions and feel confident in my skills after the course.
Marco was Amazing. I enjoyed the class and feel like I i was not drained while learning it. The pace was good, and even with COVID , he still managed to make the class enjoyable while distancing. If anyone needs a CPR certification, this place is for you!
The way this class is design and the way the teacher walk you through all this content it make acls easy. It was very helpful to me. Thanks!!

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
Overall a great learning experience. Instuctor wad great and funny.
Instructors did an excellent job. Each one is very passionate about saving lives which made the class more interesting. They use great teaching tactics that...

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. The facility was clean, the instructor was efficient and I felt as though I gained the skills needed to perform! I highly recommend First Coast Training Center if you that are looking to get certified. You will not regret the decision.

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.
This class was awesome. Brenan was amazing she knew so much and was super sweet. She made sure that we left feeling confident about the information. Best ACLS I've taken! I was a little nervous at first but she really did make the information easy to understand!
Great place! The staff is friendly and now I'm certified.
One of the best experience I’ve had in a BLS course! I’m a returning customer and will be a lifetime customer as long as they’re open.
This is a great CPR class - the best one I have ever taken. It was interactive and provided real-life situations. I feel a lot more comfortable with the...
This was the first time I enjoyed taking the BLS training, normally I dread it but not this year thanks to Mr. Carlos Chavez Tafur he was diligent in...
It was simply an amazing experience. The instructor was upbeat and made learning fun. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a real-world learning experience.
Such a fun class!! Ms. Heather definitely made this class fun! Highly recommend! Will for sure come back to renew my CPR/First aid cards in the future!
I forgot to fill out the survey on the back but Tina was great! Made the class super interesting & hands on 😃😃
Great experience! I would definitely refer others and go back when I need recertification!
I have been to a number of CPR trainings and this was by far the best. Marco was very knowledgeable and with out doubt, in his military experience, has used...
This CPR class goes above and beyond! The instructor Carlos is extremely knowledgeable in everything he taught, he is also very informative, and engaging with the class; which makes learning these important life saving skills fun, easy, and memorable.If you are having doubts on whether or not to enroll into a course. Let me be the one to change your mind, because I learned so much valuable information! I highly recommend doing any training course at First Coast Training Center.
I really enjoyed the class and it was fun and beneficial. I learned alot about proper positioning and also why we do what we do and the best way to check...
I take my CPR recertification with First Coast CPR in Fernandina Beach location Carlos is a very informative instructor.
I love the energy of the instructors! The education content, hands-on teaching, and demonstrations definitely gave me the confidence to save someone's life. Thank you so much for your passion ❤ and dedication!
I had such a fun experience with Carlos in the class! He makes it interesting and easy to understand by all the hands on things that we did. He reviews techniques thoroughly to ensure that we have it down for our future real world experiences. I would definitely recommend First Coast CPR.
Always dread going to these type classes but Marco made it a fun and great learning experience! Hope to have him again in 2 years! I’ve never had a bad instructor, here.
Don't go anywhere else. This place rocks! Great teachers. Marco made it fun as well as educational.
Let me just say, Carlos is great and he made the class go by so fast. He is engaging and very interactive with everyone and wants to help you be the best you can be at CPR. I did the BLS CPR instruction and will for sure be going back here for my 2 year renewal. 10/10 highly recommend!
Had a great experience with First Coast for BLS re-cert. Website was easy to navigate for registration. Hit a small snag initially but they were very...
First Coast CPR provided an excellent training class and environment. I took it as a re-certification, but still learned new information and reinforced my prior training. The instructor was very knowledgeable. Some training's can put you to sleep, but not this one, It was interesting and full of active learning. I will be back for more training that's for sure!

Took my ACLS class with Rachel. She made it super easy to understand! Would take my credentialing here again anytime!
Had a great instructor! Super easy and fun! I took my ACLS class with Rachael and she was amazing!
The staff was very professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. They will make sure you know what you’re doing and set you up for success. The office was clean and they even provided snacks.
Great class! Took ACLS and BLS. I have been a RN for several years and still learned new stuff in the ACLS class. Do not go if you want to just walk in get...
First Coast CPR is the ONLY way to go for all your certification and re-certification neeeds! If you have the ability to work with Carlos, please do!! He makes the classes fun and light and he has a great sense of humor!
A great place to get your BLS! I went through them twice and had different instructors but each time had a fabulous experience. Very engaging and interactive! 10/10 would recommend.
I had never taken BLS outside of the hospital setting, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but WOW! Was I pleasantly surprised! Heather was great and truly there to help you refresh your BLS skills in a non-intimidating and open discussion classroom. The office and classroom are very clean and bright (very important during this time of COVID). Snack and drinks were also provided ant no extra charge. Overall, it was truly a great experience. Thank you FCTC! I'm so happy you're here and I'll see you again in two years!
Great facility!!! Very clean and organized. Carlos is a great instructor and very passionate about his work. The environment is very welcoming and I highly recommend First Coast Training for all your CPR needs.
The training class I had was very helpful with a staff that was amazing!!! It was a fun and relaxing class. The instructor was great, very nice and personable with a good way to teach. I thoroughly enjoyed my class. I would definitely go back.
I had a great experience. I took the ACLS class and my instructor Rachel was really thorough and friendly and knowledgeable. I definitely learned a lot.
I had marco as an instructor. and robert and they were THE BEST. marco does such a good job explaining and making it fun and interesting and robert helps...
Great class only $135 for ACLS. Able to book two day prior and only had three people in the class. Instructor was friendly and very knowledgeable!
This class was easy to do with a busy schedule, the instructor was awesome, and the classroom size was small. I will be doing all of my CPR training here from now on. Carlos the instructor was phenomenal.
First Coast Training was FUN! I took their BLS for Healthcare Providers and have to say it was the best one I have ever done in over 20 years of training.I am going back for their ACLS class. If you want to be in and out in 15 minutes and not learn anything - don't come here. If you want to actually have time to practice and learn - then this is the place!
great instructors made everything very simple and comfortable. loved that they played music
By far this was the best class ever!!!This class was very informative, and informational. Everything was explained, demonstrated and hands on to perfection! We all had a lot of fun! I Will take it again tomorrow if I can have the same instructor!!!!!!
I used First Coast Training Center to renew my BLS. Being a nurse, I have taken this class many times but this was my first at this facility. I highly...
After being a nurse for 30yrs, I actually found an enjoyable way to renew my BLS Certification!!! I left First Coast Training Center smiling from ear to ear, totally prepared to respond to any person requiring life saving CPR! Don't wait 30 years! Take my advice and schedule your class today. Even if you don't expire now- you will gain confidence and feel like you have gone to a comedy show!
The best CPR/BLS class I’ve ever taken! The instructor was hilarious, yet did an amazing job at teaching. Would HIGHLY recommend!
The staff was very hospitable and knowledgeable. Carlos and Robert made the class fun and kept our attention. Fast paced but not too fast. This is the...
First Coast CPR is super convenient and accommodating, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic. Immediately upon entering they asked a brief questionnaire...
Hands down one of the BEST BLS classes I have ever attended. Thank you Tina for not being boring.. or showing us 100's of videos. I will definitely be...
Highly recommend First Coast Training Center and Carlos for your CPR certification renewal classes! He is a great instructor and very engaging. I recently moved to the area so it was my first time there, but I will definitely be back in the future!
Just got my cert for cpr for health professionals today. I highly recommend this place. Great value and the instructor Carlos will keep you entertained...
Very entertaining while going over all the material required for the American Heart Association BLS exam. I really appreciate the personal stories that illustrated each section reviewed. Thanks Marco!
I’ve been here twice in the last year, once for my first aid and once for my BLS. They did such a good job at making you feel at home. They cared so much about your input and feedback, it was nice to feel heard. I will always come back here for my renewals. 100% recommend!
Carlos is a fantastic instructor and business owner! He is extremely engaging, makes the class fun even on your third time taking it! Very professional, affordable, and lots of class times offered which makes fitting it into your schedule easy! You get your card via email immediately after the class. Highly recommend!
Carlos is the best! I have taken classes here since they opened 6 years ago and always recommend his classes to my coworkers. They offer tons of classes...
EXCELLENT TRAINING!!!! CARLOS THE INSTRUCTOR WAS EXCELLENT!!! HIS SKILLS ARE 100% AND HE MADE THE CLASS FUN AND HE MAKES YOU FEEL CONFIDENT THAT YOU CAN BE SUCCESSFUL IN ASSISTING IN CPR. HE EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN DETAIL AND ALLOWED MUCH ROOM FOR QUESTIONS. i RATE FIRST COAST CPR AND CARLOS THE INSTRUCTOR A PERFECT SCORE!!!
Yesterday was my very 1st BLS training here in US and I can say that it was awesome! They made it so easy and comfortable for all of us. They have complete...
Excellent course! Excellent presentation! Let's face it folks, a skill like this is perishable if you don't practice or think it over in your head regularly. The instructor, Carlos, presented everything you need to know about CPR in such a way, you cannot forget the skill. Thank you, First Coast!
I'd highly recommend getting CPR certified at First Coast Training Center which is located in a plaza off of Phillips Highway with plenty of parking. It...
This was the best class ever. The teacher was just the best. Very informative and interesting at the same time. Hours went by without us even noticing. Will definitely go back for renewal and hope I meet the same teacher. I strongly recommend
This class was fantastic, which is strange to say about a CPR renewal course. I’ve taken about 5 different courses over the years and there is no doubt that this place is my favorite. The class has no wasted time meaning every minute was efficient and necessary. The instructor was funny and interactive and the time flew by. Additionally the cost was very affordable compared to other courses I found. As long as I live in this area First Coast CPR is going to be the only place I use!!
Our instructor, Carlos, was exceptional. He was very engaging and there was no shortage of laughter. He entertained, and educated us throughout the process. We walked away from class with smiles knowing we were each a Superhero empowered and ready to save the day. I would highly recommend them/him.
I had taken a CPR class many years ago, and I have never experienced a training such as this one. The gentleman that was giving the class was very motivated and that positive energy that he had, he projected it to all of us. I think you guys have a well trained personal that are capable of presenting this class in a very professional and fun way for people to love it. Thank you so much for this opportunity.
I love this company. Very professional and informative. The instructor for my CPR class was Outstanding. I recommend them to all my friends and co-workers....
Came in a few days ago to receive my BLS certificate, left feeling like a life saver. I only got two hours of sleep the night before , so I figured I was going to fall asleep listening to a 4 hour lecture. Marco did quiet the opposite. He kept everyone in the class focused, entertained and busy. There was a lot of hands on, which was great! He made the class an absolute blast while providing everyone with the necessary information to be able to save a life if it comes down to it. Marco plays music while you perform compressions which really helps you to get the right rhythm. There’s snacks and coffee for break time! I will be recommending Marco to everyone and can’t wait to be back in 2 years!!! 😀

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.
Great learning experience. I recommend them to anyone who needs BLS. The instructor is very engaged and cares about everyone having a good learning experience.
I renewed my CPR at First Coast CPR business. I was referred by my nurse at work (Melissa) and I have to say this was easy as sweet potato pie. Thank you to...
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!
Was absolutely dreading having to go to another CPR class but Carlos made it so much fun that time just flew by. Highly recommend taking your course here!
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.
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.
Awesome class! I missed all of the recert classes at my hospital and was panicking about getting recertified by the time my card expires. First Coast CPR...
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.
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.
Love this place. So professional, clean, and organized. The instructors are always great. And make the class enjoyable. I’ll be back here every 2 years for my recertification.
Great experience! Ms. Lynn does a Wonderful Job delivering the material and making sure you're competent and confident with your skills.Thank you!
This was a very informative and efficient process. My instructor was amazing, easy to work with, professional. I would recommend for certification and recertification. For sure.
Carlos was awesome! The greatest of all time. If you don't know, well you better know as soon as possible.
Ty Happy Thanksgiving and Blessings everyone

Initially I took my CPR class here around 2 years ago (2017) and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Since I had such a good experience with that, I decided to take my CNA class through this company as well. I was not disappointed at all... Great teachers, great company. Will be back!!
First Coast CPR is wonderful! The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging. I had to reschedule unexpectedly and they were extremely understanding and easy to work with. The training facility off Philips Hwy is clean and well stocked with snacks and drinks. I love their mission to make Jacksonville a safer place, go get CPR certified with them!!!

Carlos was AWESOME and made our training such a fun experience!! He was extremely knowledgeable, and the way he instructed us was really fun and upbeat. I felt I was able to retain the information better, because of the unique way he taught us and correlated the instructions with jokes and music. His playlist was perfect, and he even threw in some dance moves. He was very informative but funny, and made an important training course more enjoyable. He made sure we understood the seriousness of the course, yet made jokes along the way. Loved the class and would highly recommend him.
Highly recommend to everyone whom want to learn to safe life on the needed time The instructor are great and the explanations of the class are very...
The CPR class was great. They make is fun, yet very serious class. You were never board with the class either. As a class, we all were involved in each and every step along the way. It was a amazing, learning class that we all should take even if not in the health business. You could actually safe someone's life one day..God Bless Them all for the work they do in teaching us all the right way.Thank you all again for a great learning class.Hats off to the teacher....
I recommend them to anyone that needs to take a CPR class. The class was very enjoyable. The instructor was very knowledgable and helpful.

I took the class with Rachael- it was awesome! She kept it fun and had a great personality! I would definitely recommend scheduling a class with her!
I loved the class. Straight to the point. A lot if material was covered in the four hours. But I definitely learned a lot.
Corey was an excellent instructor. He's very thorough and able to connect with the customer to ensure of a great experience. I will definitely return for recertification.
Carlos was a fantastic instructor. He kept the class lively and entertaining, while clearly covering the course material. The facility is clean and well equipped for the course and Carlos has gone out of his way to provide anything students/participants might need. Highly recommend First Coast CPR for any of your training needs.
Awesome experience. Not a lot of superfluous info. The instructor answered questions but didn't drag the class out. I left there knowing what I needed to know in a timely manner.
Mike and Tina are the best! This class has plenty energy and they are completely devoted to making sure you get the BEST information.
Absolutely the best class ever. Carlos was our instructor and he was smart, funny and made the learning memorable. We had the best time learning and will remember in an emergency because of his fun presentation. Highly recommend and can't wait to get re-certified. Ask for Carlos!
Class wasn't a boring lecture. Carlos kept us entertained and engaged so the learning part came easy. Would highly recommend it to others. Quick and easy registration process. Everything was great
I did the online module and then did my skills check in person with Carlos.He worked with me from step one, the automated system didn’t send me my link for my module right away and Carlos helped me through it.For my skills portion, he helped me through and gave me great feedback. I will be returning and will recommend.Very helpful to have classes in Fernandina and Jacksonville. Thank you!
