About Bradford Emergency Care Training and Certification

I cover CPR needs on your time!

I am a registered nurse. I have worked in all areas of critical care over 30 years. The last nine years of my career, I did travel nursing. My teaching skills come from experience. When students ask,"What's it like to do CPR on a real baby or adult?" I can tell them first hand. When they ask, "Do you save all of them?" I can also answer that honestly.

I teach BLS for healthcare providers and all of the Heartsaver Courses. I do certifications for doctors, nurses, dental offices, physical therapy companies, corporations, daycare facilities, many couples in the process of adoption, and I have a baby sitting program for young people and new parents called Prepared Providers Course.

My classes are very detailed and informative. I have an 88% return rate on renewals, with many referrals from previous students. I hand out a class evaluation at the end of each class, and they are most always filled with positive feedback and praises.

I think the best service I offer is I schedule classes at the customers needs, and not mine. If they work 3 p.m. until 11 p.m., and need to do the class 12 a.m. until 6 a.m., that's when I'll do the class for them. I think filling their needs and letting them know that their needs are important to me too, helps them decide my company is the right choice for them.

I also tailor each class to their specific needs. I think this helps them stay focused and retain the information they need, especially since the classes are lengthy. And lastly, I give them a lot of written reference material to take with them, and I am available to them by telephone, email or visit until it is time for them to renew again in two years.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I teach American Heart Association classes in First Aid and CPR including AED training for infants, children and Adults. These are two year certified classes given the students pass all of the written and skilled tests. They receive their cards the same day. The classes are all tailored to the individual or groups needs, ie: Health Care Professionals or Lay Persons.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. A church getting ready to leave the Country on a Mission Trip. I taught them all of the basics CPR, First Aid, AED training and then the real training started. I had to teach them all about the diseases and illnesses they may come in contact with in Guatemala. I explained to them the need for some of the different vaccinations they may want to have prior to leaving. They also needed to learn about the different snakes and "BUGS" to avoid by showing them pictures. I also told them it was a must to be up to date on their Tetanus Shots.



Daycares are one of my favorites. I always start by telling the group the most important job in the world is being a parent. And then I ask them if they know what the second most important job in the world is? They always think it is a trick question and they always get it wrong. When I tell them it's "Their Job", they look at me like I have three heads. I tell them it's true. Being a Parent is # 1 and You take over when they can't makes You # 2!! Then I tell them don't let me hear anyone of you say, "I'm just a Daycare Worker". They don't only learn CPR, First Aid and AED Training they learn about the children. What to look for when they are sick or when they are with other emotional needs. How to deal with different age groups of children and their different reactions.



Corporations are a challenge because they never think they are going to need this information. My most recent one gave me the best feed back ever when one of the Secretary's called me at home to tell me her story. Mind you she was one that was most verbal the day of the training that she had two reports due and would rather be doing those than "This Dumb Class!!" Anyway Corporations have to do a long class called Heartsaver First Aid AED. I spend a great deal of time going over signs and symptoms of heart attacks and strokes and what to do if they happen in the work place. I try to prepare everyone in the most comfortable way so they won't panic if something does happen to a co-worker. The class went just fine and everyone passed. Even my evaluations were pretty good-other than they all said they wished the class wasn't so long.
As I said in the begining I had this phone call a few days after the class from that disgruntled secretary.
She said she could not thank me enough. Her husband had a Heart Attack at home the day after the class and she knew exactly what to do. She said, "I never got scared or nothin! I just did what you said to do." The ambulance driver said I did a great job and probably saved my husbands life. The next thing she said was, "I guess that wasn't a Dumb Class after all!"
I just said, No It's Not. I will keep you and your family in my prayers and that was the end of the call. The Company has already rescheduled their two year renewal with me.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. You will be sure to have a thorough training session designed just for your needs and at your convenience.
I am also available to come to your place of business. I have many references and testimonials available upon request.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Don't be fooled by Companies that tell you that you can be certified in less than an hour for $50.00
There is a big difference between Companies and what they offer.
Is the Company using Medical Personnel or trained lay people to teach with no medical background.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. What is your background?

How long is the class?
How many instructors do you have working with you?
Will you come to our place of business?
How soon can you do the class?
How large of a class can you teach at one time?
What do you charge per person and does that include written materials?

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Why do I want/need this training.
When do I need to have this training?
This is a serious training and I need to approach it as such.
Am I old enough to comrehend the material?
