About California Medical Training Center

Formerly CPR 3G - Three Generations of Educators
California Medical Training Center, formerly CPR 3G LLC, has been in the field of education since 1998. We began as a home-based and traveling business with teaching CPR/BLS classes to colleagues in the medical field. We have evolved and grown with the courses we offer and have been fortunate to develop relationships with highly skilled and knowledgeable instructors while establishing relationships in the community and an exceptional reputation. We are located in the San Fernando Valley offering education primarily for health care providers, and also schools, churches, the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) and other members of the community. California Medical Training Center continues to evolve through the quality of our instructors, variety of courses, and ability to be flexible in order to accommodate our loyal students while maintaining consistency with our attention to detail and client support.

Our Goal:

We are committed to sharing our knowledge, skills & experience with health care providers along with other professional rescuers & lay persons. Promoting & encouraging the skillful practice of the most current guidelines established by the American Heart Association is not only imperative, it is our duty to the community, which is the reputation we pledge to continue to uphold.

Our Mission:

Knowledge is bound when one is compelled to tradition, knowledge is endless when tradition is bound… Keeping current with current guidelines and sharing our knowledge is our tradition.

While teaching, he learned that sharing knowledge is very rewarding. This synergy would soon establish and nurture relationships, which were the beginning steps of a new path with a focus on education, leading to become known as CPR 3G, LLC – “Three Generations of Educators”, and eventually evolved into California Medical Training Center.
