    Bob arrived with plenty of time to set up. He is very personable, knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and a very effective instructor. The entire group of 22 agreed that it was a great class. I would absolutely recommend Bob to anyone in search of an instructor.

    Our child care needs to be re-certified in CPR/First Aid every other year. We have been in business since 1980 and have had many, many different instructors. Bob was the best, by far, of any of the past presenters. His information on updates was clear and easy to understand, his demonstrations were helpful and his real life stories made the process entertaining. We all came away more confident than we have in the past knowing that if an emergency arises we are well trained to handle it. Bob arrived early, but was not disruptive to our schedule, set up his equipment and struck up a conversation with one of our parents discussing who they each knew - it is a small world. We would highly recommend Bob if you need CPR/First Aid/AED training. We will be contacting him again in two years. Thank you. Staff at Calico Kids Day Care

    Bob was great !! His course was a clear and a practice training was a perfect way to understand. He answered all our questions with examples which I think the best way for us to understand. If you hesitate which training you need, I would recommend Bob. Yon won't regret.

    Bob Beck did a great job instructing our small class! He was informative and interesting throughout the entire course. He presented the concepts simply so that we all could understand and become comfortable with performing CPR and using an AED device. He also gave us advice on what to do in an actual trauma situation as far as recruiting others from a crowd to help out, and told us stories of real-world examples based on his experiences in the field. He had no problem answering our numerous questions. I thought I would feel nervous to have to actually use my training even after learning, but after his course I actually feel confidently prepared should a situation arise where I would need to perform CPR! Bob Beck is professional but also down-to-earth, and our whole group enjoyed having him here to teach us.

    Bob's class was very comprehensive! He mixed "How-To" type discussion with a healthy dose of "Real-Life" scenario. We all felt the class was quite knowledgeable, but also fun! He has a great sense of humor and clearly knows his stuff!

    Bob ran a well-organized re-fresher CPR and First Aid class for our company. He tailored the First Aid portion of the class to address the specific incidents/injuries that may be seen by our employees on the job site. He demonstrated and explained the new CPR techniques thoroughly.

    Bob was professional and knowledgeable. He ran a well-organized First Aid and CPR class that lasted about 3-1/2 hours. He tailored the First Aid class to the needs of our staff, explained CPR techniques clearly and thoroughly, and responded well to questions. Great class!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We ask a lot of questions so we can tailor a class for the group so they can get the best possible training in an informative and comfortable environment.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have 25 years of experience as a career Firefighter/EMT and as an Instructor so I can combine both and use my street experience answering 911 calls with 25 years of classroom teaching CPR .
What types of customers have you worked with?
The clients that we do business enjoy the fact that we teach at their business. Their employees do not have to travel and we can run a class in the time alloted. The new trend today is CPR combined with AED training, A large number of businesses have AEDs or are going to purchase one in the near future. This training makes it possible to be prepared for those unexpected emergencies that arise at work and those businesses that provide our training can now better protect thier employees. Restaurants and food service businesses can benefit from having their employees trained in the latest chokesaver techniques...We will come to your business and teach your staff what to do if a customer or employee suffers a foreign airway obstruction. A large number of our clients are in the medical field and an even larger number are in childcare...We train daycare providers as well as Doctors and Nurses. Every profession can benefit from learning CPR.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
All of our instructors work in cities and towns answering 911 calls. We can teach you how to save a life or deal with an emergency because that is our job everyday!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
As a Firefighter/ EMT who has been in the trade for over 25 years it is important for a potential customer to know that all of our instructors HAVE SAVED LIVES DURING THEIR CAREERS. There are people who have lived to see another day because of the work that our instructors do...that is who you should have teaching CPR , First aid. Automated External defribrilator training or the Heimlich (Chokesaver). Our instructors can say that they have made a difference in someone's life and we can teach you the skills to be there in case disaster strikes , you can be the difference between life and death at home, your work or out in the public.
