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.

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.

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!

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! 😊

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.

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

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.

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!

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!!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
