The SureFire CPR certification program is GREAT! Chris made the information fun, and interesting. I was re-certifying and have carried a CPR Cert for over 11 years, so this wasn't my first or last class. It was however one of my favorites. I have already recommended SureFire to some colleagues who are up for re-certification. Thank you Chris. Great job SureFire!

I am now a Grandmother so I wanted to be sure I know how to handle any situation that arises. I took the Pediatric CPR/First Aid class last week and it was awesome and satisfying to know that "if anything happens" I am ready!!! The instructors are great and they have superb materials as well. The 6 hours for this class passes quickly and I left wanting to take another! ^_^

I attended the BLS course to renew my certification and had a great time. Not only was it a fun learning environment but was also a small class, which meant great one-on-one time in case you needed assistance. Our instructor, Carolyn, was great, very informative and encouraged the class to ask questions. The facility is really kind as to offer light snacks and coffee/hot cocoa. I would suggest that anyone taking a course at SureFire get involved and participate! Also, remember to buy a keychain CPR mask - it's definitely worth the money you pay for.
