Learn the latest techniques for developing lifesaving skills to keep your family and friends safe. With a curriculum developed by our nationally renowned expert, we’ve made it easier, quicker and more affordable to give you the power to save a life. Take the time now to do your part in keeping your community safe.

Just about everyone agrees that lifesaving skills are important and valuable; however, few people actually take a class. Why? Lifesaving skills classes are expensive, intimidating, take a long time and are difficult to get to. No wonder that although 95% of us believe it is important to learn lifesaving skills, only a few of us actually take a class. With our mission to bring lifesaving skills training to everyone, we’ve eliminated these barriers so today, everyone can learn how to save a life.

Check out our course listings. You’ll notice the cost of each class is less expensive than our competitors and is easy to find –

you don’t need to call us, send a request or wait for a response from us for a quote. If you have a large group of 10 or more, the prices are even more cost effective.

We know that if you’re engaged, entertained and motivated, you’ll learn quicker and retain the information longer. Our expert curriculum director and executive vice president, Ken Roland, a Red Cross and American Heart Association instructor trainer for over 20 years, has created a curriculum based on innovative mnemonics, enjoyable exercises and practical application. As a nationally renowned expert, Ken’s ability to effectively train at all levels, from healthcare providers to laypersons, affords everyone the opportunity to be trained by the best.

We realize that in today’s modern world, our free time is often limited. Other CPR classes average 4 ½ hours; First Aid, 3 hours. For professionals needing certification in CPR or First Aid, CPR, Etc. has cut that down to 2 ½ hours for CPR and 2 hours for First Aid by providing each student their own manikin and by replacing videos with real life, practical applications. Non-certified CPR and First Aid classes are only 90 minutes long.

And when we say we’ll come to you, we don’t add-on any travel or off-site fees.

We believe that together, we can create strong communities that know how to respond in an emergency. Our mission is to bring lifesaving skills to everyone so we can all be responsible members of our community. These lifesaving skills are not needed anywhere as much as they are needed in South Florida where extreme weather patterns, proximity to wildlife and our beach culture create an environment that can be dangerous. In just a few hours, you can do your part to make South Florida safer – call us today at 954-529-8353 and find out just how easy it is to become a lifesaver.
