Great Course!!

Adam made the class ‘fun’ instead of drawn out and boring. It was helpful hearing ‘true’ stories of when CPR was used. Being a paramedic made him much more credible.

Adam was a great teacher. It was nice to have a little (lot) of humor involved while also getting actual facts. I have been certified many times since 2001, and this was my best class. I plan on taking more classes while trying to get others to as well. I also want my department to go with APHE.
