Excellent explanations given, good interaction with students.
- EMT, PHTLS Provider Participant
Review of everything, plus learning new ‘tricks’ for assessments and remembering GCS. Overall, a great course. Remembered a lot and hand many skills reinforced. Thanks, Adam!
- Paramedic, PHTLS Provider Participant
Thank you for keeping it relatively low-key. I felt like it was easier to go through the particular algorithms because of the complexity of the cases as well. Would recommend to others. Thanks!
- Resident Physician, ACLS Provider Recognition Participant
The instructor was very knowledgeable and communicated the information in an interesting manner. I really enjoyed this class although it was required of me. I would recommend this course to others.
- Emergency Department RN, ACLS Provider Renewal participant
Instructor taught well and recognized the dignity/worth of each student.
- C.N.A., BLS for Healthcare Providers participant
Department requirement—much better program than [others]—less stressful, easier to learn. Retained more info!
- RN, ACLS Provider Renewal participant
It was recommended to take ‘Adam’s Class’ because he was a very good teacher and taught us in a way that helped us remember what was important to know—made it simplified—I would like to see Adam available to teach all of our ACLS/PALS/CPR classes.
- Emergency Department RN, ACLS Provider Recognition participant
Communicated very well with good personal experience. The instructors were credible.
- Resident Physician, ACLS Provider Recognition participant
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.
- EMT, BLS for Healthcare Providers participant
Instructor was very helpful in explaining, and we had a lot of hands-on and discussion.
- Elementary School teacher, Heartsaver CPR/AED/First Aid participant
Refreshing, practical approach, while non-threatening. It may actually help me to remember stuff if needed! Great job and actually fun!

Very informative, liked performing with the video. Atmosphere was nice and relaxed.
- MD, BLS for Healthcare Providers participant
