Mr. Watson provided CPR training for our children's ministry and our safety team at New Life Community Church. He scheduled the class, provided training materials and the team all felt they were properly trained. We look forward to using his service yearly and have recommended him to our other locations.Mar 23, 2016Byron W.'s reply
Thank you for your kind words. I really enjoyed working with New Life Community Church's Safety & Security Ministry. I look forward to the next training.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes, I do have a standard pricing. For healthcare professionals needed their BLS Certification (new or renewing) the cost is $60 (does not include price of training book). For non-healthcare professionals: Teachers, Babysitters and Youth Coaches looking for First Aid/CPR and AED Training the cost is $85 (does not include price of training book). American Heart Association calls this Heart Saver Training. This class is much longer than the BLS class for healthcare providers. I am able to offer Blended Learning which consists of online training (which is similar to sitting in the classroom) followed by skills session to show that you can pass a skills session to earn your certification. The cost of the training book is included in the cost of course.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Every client is different and has it's own certain processes. We usually have a conversation about what is needed and how soon it is needed. We also discuss if I need to travel to them to complete the training. We can meet at your local park, doctor's offices, schools or community centers. I prefer public places for safety reasons for everyone. We also can meet at my local Park District-- Rutherford Sayre Park to complete training.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I served six years as a Medical Specialist in the US Army. I am a Certified Allied Health Instructor, Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, Certified EKG Tech, Certified Phlebotomy Tech and First Aid/CPR Instructor through American Heart Association. I am currently teaching Medical Assistants in the classroom teaching them all the skills needed to know about becoming a professional healthcare worker. This includes: Infection Control, Diagnostic Testing--obtaining vital signs, drawing blood and obtaining EKG's. In addition; I prepare the students for their certification exam so they can become employed as Medical Assistants, Phlebotomists or EKG Technicians. I also studied Adult Education/Human Resource Development at Northeastern Illinois University; this helps me to be an even better educator and trainer because of this training.
