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!!!!
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 Jax
And 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.
The class size was reasonable, the educator was personable and the resources were appropriate for this setting. The material was covered in a systematic easy to follow fashion which made learning environment comfortable. I would certainly recommend First Coast CPR to others.
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 was dreading taking this class because I've taken it so many times but Niki made the class so fun and relaxed! She was very creative and informative! The team that taught with her was helpful and encouraging! By far the best CRR BLS class I've ever taken! And they had a great price!if you need a CPR class, this is the place to go!
I have taken many BLS courses in my career, and this one was excellent. The instructor, Cherie, made the class interesting and fun. The coursework was covered thoroughly, and the skills check-offs were not intimidating or redundant. I would recommend to anyone needing the class.
This was an amazing class.. It was very informative, educational and fun. Our instructor Rachel was a great teacher. She was very patient and made everyone feel at ease. We laughed alot which I never experienced in a class like this. I can say I am looking forward to taking another class..
Great class. What typically is quite boring material was made interesting by Cherie...she did a great job. As another reviewer said- I've been to many CPR classes in my career, and this was by far my favorite. And snacks! :) Thanks Cherie!
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!
This was my first time taking this class but it was so very well planned, thought out and an awesome learning environment. The instructor Rachel did an amazing job helping each of us and I highly recommend this facility!
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.
Highly recommend First Coast CPR for all CPR/AED/Lifesaver courses. The staff is truly knowledgeable, helpful and has so much experience. Often times the material in these classes is redundant and boring, but First Coast CPR really strives to keep you engaged.
I attended yesterday and I thought the course was very thorough and hands on. The class was very entertaining and it went by quickly. Rachel is an excellent instructor and very friendly. I will be back for my two year renewal. Thanks!
The training was the BEST CPR training I have ever attended. EXTREMELY informative, well worth the time...and also entertaining..instructors made a dull but necessary training fun!! I recommend this to EVERYONE!!
I took the class for renewal. By far the best class i have attended and for the price it was Very Very informative and LOTS of hands on. Andrew and Kipp were AWESOME!!!. Thanks guys! Will definitely recommend.
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!!!
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.
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
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! The atmosphere there is super professional, yet they have a fun learning environment. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone! They even have free gourmet coffee and healthy snacks!!
I have taken several CPR classes and even taught First Responder. It is hard to make this material enjoyable but you guys pulled it off. It was a great atmosphere and facility. I would definitely recommend you in the future
Awesome CPR class yesterday. Instructor was Heather and she was excellent. She made things simple and made sure everyone understood everything before moving on. Class is held in a great environment with snacks and drinks as well. Great mixture of lecture, video, and hands on learning.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
