Testimonial from our client

I joined this class for ACLS. I do not currently use this in my practice but a new job required it. Kim was helpful, reassuring, and encouraging. She teaches the class in well thought out matter of fact way; making sure students truly comprehend the information in the video presentations. She is kind and supportive in correcting/critiquing skills we sometimes THINK we know. She is friendly and lets a laugh in. I definitely recommend her class.

Testimonial from our client

Took Kim's classes for both ACLS & BLS and it was by far one of the best CPR classes I've taken. Kim is very knowledgeable in the course contents and she is very helpful in making you understand the material required to pass. If you require your certification, her classes are definitely worth taking.

Testimonial from our client

By far the best training I have ever had! I will definitely be a loyal customer! She is very very knowledgeable, very clear and concise, makes every effort for it to be an awesome experience, has tremendous pride in what she does, the price will definitely fit in any budget so yes, this is a great investment. I can go on and on, but then this will turn into a novel haha!
Seriously, great knowledge and experience with Kim!

The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in BLS, ACLS, and PALS; and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA materials, do not represent income to the Association.
