2018 Top Pro
About this pro
I was employed as a EMS superviser for SAS Ambulance for four years, supervising 15 BLS and ALS units per shift, and a lieutenant on a advanced life support engine for 22 years before retiring. I have extensive hands on field experience, which I bring into the classromm. I tailor classes to any level of student education, from doctors to high school students and everyone in between. My classes are never boring and I never waste you time. I take great pride in knowing that the people taking my class have received the best practical knowledge to perform the skills needed to save a life. When I do re-certification classes for people who have taken CPR classes many times from other company`s, I am often told " I learned more in your class than all the other classes combined". I teach from practical experience.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Ask yourself why are you taking a CPR course. I have viewed other local CPR ads that charge $24.95 or they will beat other competitors prices. If all you want is a CPR card to meet employment requirements, they may be for you. I teach CPR/AED as if I needed you to preform it on ME. I charge $35 per person for for CPR, and $45 per person for CPR/ first aid. If I have to travel more that 10 miles, I require at least 2 students, more than 15 miles, 3 students. Out of Pinellas county, at least 5 students. I do offer group discounts.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?If I am teaching nurses at a nursing home, I still teach child and infant CPR. If I am teaching at a daycare, I still teach how to do CPR on a elderly patient. Your not always at work. You may need to use the skills I teach at home.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I retired from the fire service several years ago, after 31 years as a training officer. I also worked as a field supervisor for a local ambulance company for six years. I started emergency medical training at Atlantic Community College, US Army, SPJC, Florida Fire College, Central Florida College, National Fire Academy, and over 25 years of continuing medical education through St. Petersburg College. I am a member of the American Heart Association, American CPR Training Association and continuously take online courses. I also search the web for things pertinent to CPR, first aid, heart attacks and strokes. I always include these when upgrading my handouts in class. I have been invited to become a field instructor with Heartorg, American Heart Association.
