These gentlemen came to teach us CPR class yesterday at my job site. I've taken CPR before, but the information didn't resonate like it did yesterday. Jeff was a great teacher, and his assistants were awesome as well! They taught in a way that helped me learn and retain the information. Thanks guys I really appreciate and enjoyed this class!

Got Basic Life Support (BLS) and ACLS done here. Instructors are great. They give you a lot of hands-on practice and have real medications available to get familiar with what you will see in a real-life situation. The class is very chill but thorough. I will definitely be getting all of my renewals done here.
