About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I'm probably a little more critical of your chest compressions than some instructors - this is a life-saving motor skill that needs to be practiced to a competent learning level if you're really going to save a life. I try to impart knowledge, not just play a video. Also, I assure you - we'll have FUN! (It makes a class more enjoyable). Customers also want businesses they can trust - we're the only BBB-accredited CPR business in Coweta, Fayette, South Fulton, Carroll, Heard, or Meriwether counties.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I get the chance to share my knowledge, training and expertise with others - that might result in saving another's life. Over 80% of cardiac events happen in the home, so you're likely to be saving your child, spouse, or parent's life with these skills. Even if your boss asks or requires you to attend a CPR class, just know it might be your husband/wife, father, or little girl that lives because you decided to take a CPR training course.

    Outstanding instructor. So patient and kind. The only suggestion I have would be to announce what class we are in and announce it before the class begins to make sure we are in the correct class.

    Well, I attended a "Free CPR for the Community" class, it was free but worth a lot more. Covered CPR for all ages, even babies, and choking all ages also, and heart atttack signs. Good instruction and excellent class, fairly quick - less than 1 1/2 hours.

    Thanks for attending, and thanks for taking the time to learn a skill that might save a loved one's life!

    I usually hate sitting in class, even CPR. This class was enjoyable, a lot of information, but plenty of "hands-on" with excellent equipment. Instructor very knowledgeable and no dead time or empty time. Thanks.

    Thanks for coming to class, and thanks for the feedback, Roger.

    I received a BLS for Healthcare skills check, it was professionally done, thorough, and QUICK! It was nice to get in and out in 35 minutes. A good value for the skills check. New equipment, and good knowledge. I'll use Newnan CPR again in 2 years.
    Sam C. Jun 9, 2014

    Thanks, it is certainly faster to take an online AHA course, and then get a skill check within 2 months!

    Sam Connor from Newnan CPR came to my office and taught Heart Association CPR AED for my employees. The class was interesting, and instructor very knowledgeable, and if was fun to be in attendance, and also informative. We're working on purchasing an AED, and Sam said he'd help us get it set up, and medical direction if we get the OK to purchase one. Thanks for the great service and for teaching the class. I will use ThumbTack again to find a service professional.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I read the professional journals and the resuscitation science studies - to learn what works, what EMS agencies and hospitals are trying, and what offers improved survivability. This is not about improving some number by 5%. 15,000 people per month die needlessly from cardiac arrest. (Yea that's a bold statement - but if the Nation could get to where MN/AZ/King County WA already are with Cardiac Arrest survivability - that's how many lives could be saved).
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
For the public courses, standard pricing per student is CPR/AED - $40, First Aid Only - $40, 1st Aid/CPR/AED - $60, BLS for Healthcare - $50. We've had the same prices since 2014, we may go up $5.00 in 2017.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
It started when I was 5, I had an uncle die of "heart failure". At the funeral home, I heard my aunt say "I wish I had known 'mouth-to-mouth' and he might still be alive". I didn't know what that term even meant. My first training was when I was in the Boy Scouts, and I've been determined since then NOT to be someone at the funeral home saying "I wish I had known CPR, so that _________ might still be with us". Please, you don't be that person, either. It takes from 40 minutes to 3 hours of time from your life and $10-50 from your wallet. My loved ones are worth it, I think yours are, also.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Usually training at their workplace, gym or hospital for a group of employees, nursing students, etc. Often (like 6-8 times per month) we rent a facility for "Public classes", or "community training". Anyone can sign up, generally for $40-$50 per course. We can also teach at your clinic, fitness center, church, neighborhood association, nursing home, child care center, etc. Practical and fun training that may save the life of a loved one. Learn CPR - Save a Life!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
For my employer, I manage the AED program and teach First Aid/CPR/AED classes for 350 or so employees. I also am responsible for the "Annual CPR/AED" drill. As a result of training and practice, we have gotten drills to less than 2 minutes from patient collapse to AED shock. That's an amazing result that indicates CPR being performed within 45 seconds from someone collapsing and AED shock within 2 minutes. Those are better times than Las Vegas casinos, that have higher than 55% survival rate. Yes, that means my office is a GREAT place to have a cardiac arrest (as if you'll get to choose the where or when).
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If required by your employer/clinic/fitness center/hospital, etc. to have CPR training, then ONLY go with a national provider (American Heart, Red Cross, or NSC). If you're a Medical Professional or nursing/medical/dental student, we would ONLY recommend AHA BLS for Healthcare Providers course (from Newnan CPR, or a lot of other AHA instructors). There's nothing wrong with completing the AHA HeartCode (online) course, as long as you get an AHA skill check within 2 months. If your employer requires CPR certification, completion of an "online-only" CPR course Will NOT be recognized, cause OSHA doesn't recognize online CPR training without a hands-on practice session with a qualified instructor.
