About this pro

How does your service stand out?

My work stands out from others because I am not only the president, but also a member! Haha, I am a Nurse who understands the need to know emergency response training and I also know how these classes should be run. Unfortunately, my competitors have taken the old boring route and make you sit in an unfamiliar place (their location) and play a 6 hour video with little interaction. We use the videos when appropriate, but we have also found a way to interact with our students in an energetic way creating an atmosphere conducive to learning while speeding up the process for those who are already comfortable with the material.

    James was great! He responded almost immediately to my request and was able to clearly communicate all of the logistical details with me quickly. He even came to me, so I didn't need to travel at all. On the day of, he was prompt and very efficient. Since I have taken CPR courses before, he was direct about what I needed to know and updated me on the new procedures developed in the last two years. James also made sure I was doing the techniques properly and made sure all my questions were answered. Thanks so much!

    James was thorough and realistic. He made learning CPR fun, while stressing the importance. He was patient in being sure the class understood and could apply what we learned. This class was convenient and affordable. I would recommend Gotham EMS to anyone looking to become or renew their CPR certification.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Because I certify government employees and military personnel, I am required to know the latest advancements in emergency response training. Gotham EMS was training our students in the compression only technique as soon as it was discussed at the conference, a whole year earlier than it was required
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Our classes are not complicated, but our pricing is determined by a few factors: Distance we have to travel. Type of class (Whether it is CPR, CPR & AED, CPR & First Aid, BBP, etc) How many students. You will get the best deal if you have 3 or more students, but if you are close to us, even an individual can get the same deal. Either way, you will find that our prices are better than anyone else in our area. We make sure of that
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was a Lifeguard as a teenager and had to sit through these classes EVERY year (I only had a one year certification from Red Cross). Then I became an EMT and found that I could take a class from American Heart Association and it would last 2 years. The class was still boring. I felt that there should be different classes for different ability levels. For those who knew what they were doing this class should be quick and to the point. For those who are learning these skills for the first time, there should be more interaction and reasoning behind the instruction. Since I could not find anyone who did this, I decided to do it myself!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Most common classes are re-certification classes for professionals who don't want to have to go through the grueling class over and over again. Our students find our class fun, quick and informative. Even new students can master the skills of CPR, First Aid, BBP & AED in less time than those other companies because we are actually engaging our students through visual, instructional and hands on learning
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Find a provider who offers the best rates and offers the same quality of classes that the most expensive provider does
