CPR Courses


“Kathy teaches you all the skills needed to recognize and respond to cardiorespiratory, choking and other emergencies for adults, children and infants. She has an exceptional ability to convey important information in a short period of time, ensuring that participants actively learn the material. At the course conclusion, you are ready to respond should you enter a situation where you are the only person around that could save someone’s life.”

“As a fitness professional I have taken many CPR/AED certifications. But taking it with Kathy was by far my best experience. She is very thorough and detailed. Kathy makes sure you leave feeling confident using your CPR/AED skills to save a life. The course was also hands-on and interactive, mimicking real-life scenarios. Kathy is open to questions and very friendly. Definitely will recertify with her again!”
