Adam B., Soon-to-be Dad

"You and this course are fantastic. I thought it would be more difficult to learn because it wasn’t in person because of COVID, but your videos were very easy to follow and were the perfect length. Your real live example stories were awesome, as it was great to hear about the techniques we were being taught, working in real life scenarios. It was great that you broke the techniques down by age group so we know how to help people of all ages. Learning this information for infants has helped settle my nerves a little about our new upcoming baby. Thanks again!


Julie H., Educator, Parent

This was the perfect course in every way...it was absolutely convenient and so easy to follow along with and understand. I feel confident as an educator and parent to provide CPR and First Aid. I even looked forward to learning about the new topics everyday. Thank you so much to Nicole for being a calm and patient and experienced teacher!
