    Amazing Instructor Nava, David for ACLS.He was entertaining and kept the class laughing the whole time. I learned alot from this class. He is a "Paramedic" so he comes across what he is teaching you on daily basis almost. He made it really simple to understand. - 7/24/2019

    I've been going here for years. This is definitely the lowest stress BLS, ACLS, and PALS that I've ever taken. I highly recommend them. Even if you are the only person scheduled for a class, they will still have it for you. They offer all the classes you need. Check out their website. - 11/03/2019
