The First Coast CPR was a amazing class and very informative! If you haven’t taken a CPR class.... this is the one to take, very hands on and the instructor Carlos is hilarious! I learned so much as this was my second time taking the class! Thank you Carlos for all your knowledge!

This was the best CPR certification/recertification experience I've had. I did the option with online modules and testing, and then visited First Coast CPR for the skills assessment. The assessment was straightforward, low stress, and students were assessed in a group setting and partnered together for the 2 person rescue scenarios. We had a great, interactive instructor. I highly recommend First Coast CPR for AHA CPR/BLS certification.

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!!! 😀

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

I took the CPR Class and learned so much. Asley was awesome and very knowledgeable. I really wished I would have taken it years ago when my daughter was born. If you have taken a CPR class yet, sign up now...someone's life may depend on it.

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!

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!

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

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

We had five shift managers go to First Coast CPR to get their certification in First Aid/CPR/AED for Adult/Child/Infant. All of them were able to do it on the same day, and it went off without a hitch. Perfect for corporate training.

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!

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.

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!

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!

TO ALL OF OUR STUDENTS:

In order to support and follow the "Stay at Home" mandate for the month of April issued by our Governor DeSantis, and Jacksonville's Mayor Curry, First Coast Training Center will be limiting our class offering ONLY to Healthcare Providers.
Classes will be offered ONLY on Tuesdays at 10 am, Thursday at 6 pm, and Saturday at 9 am.

Class size is limited to ONLY 10 students. Every student will be at their own table and have their own gear to practice (Adult and Infant manikins, AED, breathing barriers, etc), and practicing rescue breaths will be voluntary.

All students, upon arrival, will be asked to wash their hands before entering the class. Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer will be available to clean manikins, hands, and all surfaces as many times as needed, and for anyone who wants to wear gloves, we will have nitrile gloves ready and available. 

Finally, and as it is our policy, if any students would like to pospone, reschedule, or cancel their class, they will be able to do so without acquiring any penalties or fees.

We wish you all the best and hope that this challenge/adventure comes to an end soon.
