This was my first time renewing my BLS certification on line. It was very easy to do with my busy schedule. This style of teaching met my learning needs as I retained the information easier. Brandon was my instructor who set up the online course and met me in person for my skills testing. He is an excellent instructor with invaluable knowledge in this field. I felt very confident with the information I learned as he answered my questions and provided support in my learning. I would like to try the classroom training he offers when my renewal is due. Thank you Brandon for all of your help. We are blessed have dedicated instructors like you in our community!

Kevin (our instructor) held an amazing Class. Very Informative. The hands-on approach with personal experiences woven in really helped drive his points home. We had a fairly large group attend this training and he was able to keep them all engaged and learning all the way till the end. 100% recommend this course to anyone interested in this kind of training.

Our department used LifeSaver CPR for our CPR recertification for the first time and it couldn’t have gone better. Our instructor was fun and relatable while the scheduling and overall organizing of the class was super simple, and we had our cards the next day.

Life Saver CPR has been our go-to training company for years. Brandon is awesome at both training and running the company, and this year we have Kevin as our trainer and found him to be excellent as well. We have nothing but good things to say about this company.

Brandon was great - I entered the class feeling anxious and apprehensive about the subject manner, but he teaches in a matter-of-fact way that quells any panic about the prospect of an emergency arising. He made it all feel much simpler than I thought it would be. I also appreciated how he was gracious about the fact that I was 20 minutes late, and caught me up with the rest of the class.

Brandon did an excellent job training my staff. He was very easy to communicate with while setting up the training, as well as after the training. He provided the information in a manner that made it very easy to follow and remember. He shared meaningful, real life stories that were helpful. I would highly recommend Brandon for all your CPR and First Aid trainings!
