About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Think Safe is unique from other training centers in that we know and understand all certifying major training organizations. Think Safe owns the First Voice product line and is a manufacturer and developer of software and hardware that brings technology to the world of emergency response. Products developed and sold by First Voice are intended to be used by the average lay rescuer, who is infrequently trained and may need coaching real-time during any emergency or want easier access to refresher training in order to be more prepared for emergencies. Thus, our technical experts at Think Safe include Certified Instructors, and healthcare professionals that have over 150 years experience in pre-hospital emergency care and know the protocols and curriculum and teaching methods and mechanisms of all the major certifying agencies. At the end of all of our certified training sessions, students receive a 1 year to 3 year certification. Also, all students must perform a training drill at the end of class that is pertinent to their workplace protocols to include scene safety, the assessment of any victim(s), initiating the emergency action plan, calling 911 and other emergency notification numbers, starting compressions, getting others to help and switching compressor roles, performing breaths when using proper rescue breathing barriers, clearing the scene, proper record keeping procedures and intake forms, EMS flaggers, first aid treatment procedures, and more…. Our training center and trainers utilize the best technology and tools available when performing CPR training courses. Tools utilized include American Heart Association (AHA) compliant cognitive feedback devices such as Prestan CPR feedback manikins or The Loop CPR gaming platform. Students receive access to online manuals and refresher training anytime including course handouts and skills review handouts. Our training center portal for students that have taken our courses also includes training drills and training scenarios for ongoing responder team use during future practice sessions.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

There is amazing satisfaction in teaching people simple yet effective basic life support techniques or other key basic emergency response tips - things that save lives and decrease disability and legal liability.

    Good Course! Thanks for being so upbeat. I have sat in meetings the last 4 days so I was “sat out” but you kept me entertained.

    The instructor from the CPR class was outstanding. I have been scheduling CPR training for the last 6 years and John was the best!

What types of customers have you worked with?

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for a provider with great experience, excellent equipment and current technology equipment (including manikins) that can provide various options for training - this will ultimately save companies time and money.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
All CPR and First Aid trainers and training centers are not created equal. Make sure you know and understand how many manikins are going to be assigned to students or shared between students, what types of manikins they use, what training organization they are using, how long the training will last or is supposed to last, if they will customize the agenda to meet your high risk needs in your workplace or facility, if they run a training drill at the end of the training session (or during it), if they provide consultation on AED servicing or other equipment servicing at no charge during a training class at your site, if they offer any add-on templates for your Emergency Action Plan or procedures, if they know state laws for Good Samaritan or AED ownership. Also, be careful of hidden fees and ask if they have card reprints readily available or offer digital cards. Do they offer free database access to your training rosters and employee training records? Do they offer manuals online at no extra fee? Do they hand out pocket guides/card or key chains during the training for responder personal protection and leave behind resources? What types of training tools do they have? All of these are important questions - you should not have to just sit and watch a video and push on manikins during training - it should be an integrated process that conforms with your Emergency Action Plan or procedures at your facility.
