Are you apprehensive about taking your first CPR/AED course?  No worries! - read below for a few testimonials from one of our recent participants:

Thank-you! I was a little anxious signing up for this class, perhaps it seemed less legitimate set in an aerobics studio than the Red Cross or something? And I did need the ‘Real Thing’ for my OT program. But I really feel like I lucked out, finding this class online. Kim was prompt replying to my initial email, clear and informative answering my questions, and worked hard to accommodate my needs in terms of scheduling and learning style.

I was also anxious about taking the class, I found the last one I took rather stressful, hurried, and sometimes confusing. This session with Kim was a really great experience. I found her extremely knowledgeable and an excellent instructor. She made sure I understood each step of the way, was patient when I got confused, and like any good teacher - found various ways to explain any unclear points. I learned far more than I did in my previous CPR class and this time around I actually feel confident that I can use these skills if need be.
