Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great course with a Great Instructor I found this course to be the best "bang for your buck". It gives you training on First Aid, CPR and AED's in case of a real life situation. I have seen a person have a heart attack and have another person administer immediate CPR and since then I have always had and maintained this certification. Also, I use to be a Nanny and the training made me feel more comfortable to administer correct first aid and to know pediatric CPR. And recently I had to put a child on my lap and hit their back to help remove a lodged piece of food from their mouth. So this training has been life saving to others and hopefully to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun & Informative DawnMarie, was a pleasure to learn from. She kept the class moving providing a sharp humorous wit but with reason in the event of an emergency. This style of training helps to remember key American Red Cross procedures. In addition, I appreciated Dawn Marie's hands-on style when we needed to demonstrate a skill and if we were not on point she showed us what we were doing incorrectly and then explained the "Why" we should do it in the fashion she was teaching us. DawnMarie was also very knowledgable of the required American Red Cross techniques a trainer need to know, teach, assess and ultimately review for class compliance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oct 28th Camarillo CPR course Instructor's behavior was inappropriate numerous times during class. We almost walked out early on, but are both re-certs so stayed to get it over with. He was trying to be funny (I think) but comments and discussion topics were just not appropriate for a CPR certification course. Made the class unfocused at times and caused class to run almost an hour long. I'm positive there were folks who left the class certified, yet cannot properly perform CPR if asked to demonstrate. People in the class were CERT members, EMT trainees, bus drivers, teachers, etc. getting certified for some important positions. The quality of instruction should have been much higher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great info and a top notch facilitator! The course material was relevant, well organized, and presented in a manner that was easy to follow. After completing this course, with no prior first aid or CPR training, I feel as though I have gained the basic skills needed to help my fellow human in a moment of crisis. The instructor, Jon, was fun and engaging and did a great job facilitating the course. He kept his audience engaged while ensuring the course material transitioned smoothly throughout the day. I would recommend that everyone take this course so our communities may be well prepared to help one another in a crisis situation or in the event of a disaster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Expected! I have been a participant in CPR/1st Aid Trainings for about 10 years now, and I have to admit I was not mentally prepared to go and sit through something I was already familiar with. With the understanding that practice makes perfect, I was happy to say that the "refresher" was a very pleasant experience. The instructor did a great job with making the training as interactive as possible. I enjoyed the light humor, as some trainers can be a little dry. 1st aid is a very serious matter, however, I felt that many of the participants were more relaxed with the process and able to learn more effectively in a relaxed atmosphere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from massive bleed The most important and 1st thing to look for is a massive bleed. We didn't spend anytime hardly on how too deal with a massive bleed from wound packing to tourniquet application. I spent several boring hours that really didn't amount to much. That time could have been better spent teaching us how to use these items. Rather they showed a pic of tq and said you can now use these. I really felt that instead paying for good training I purchased a certification. And now that I have the certification I am paying for real training. Thanks for the piece of paper. I am sure it will save lives.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Somewhere between mediocre and a waste of time After having my scheduled class cancelled twice, I had to drive more than an hour to a different location and spend $50 more than the location closer to my house. The trainer basically just read off of the slides. We had approx. 1/2 hour total of hands-on for what was supposed to be a 6 hour day with no testing or evaluation to determine if were actually able to perform cpr, etc properly without correction. Even with more than an hour of breaks, we still finished more than an hour early. I was definitely disappointed in this course.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good training but could have been better First, I did learn all of the necessary skills and this was my primary goal. Instructor was qualified and knowledgeable although had difficulty when computer problems developed. In addition, slides were not presented in slideshow format so images were hard to see (maybe she isn't aware of slideshow format). The computer problems caused her to skip some slides of the course that she said were optional. All that aside, she did know her material and taught the basic skills I was looking for. As for the computer problems, it would have been better to take a break and give her the time to get it working without undue stress.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not the best I feel like the instructor was a little checked out. We breezed through the videos, and she said a lot of "you all know about (this or that) already, so we don't need to go over that". I was most interested in the infant portion as I recently started a business that revolves around infants. She literally got the dolls out, told us to practice on them, and that was it. We probably stayed an extra 7 minutes. I feel like I bought a certificate rather than buying instruction and skills. Luckily I have taken a lot of CPR/First Aid courses, so I will probably be fine for the next two years until it's time to renew again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Basic In my opinion the course was fundamental to a fault. We discussed common sense aspects of the topics covered, but did not spend enough time actually doing the techniques themselves. If you are going to take the time to be there in person, there should be more "hands-on" training. This would aid in the knowledge retention as nothing beats doing something verses talking about it. I understand it seems most folks are there to meet a job requirement, but if you are seeking knowledge for your own concerns, look for a more in-depth course that focuses on use of the skills taught.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Patience - Patience - Patience I enjoyed Wendy, and I believe she was very knowledgeable. My only thing is that she needed to show more energy, it's a long class, she was very monotone It didn't show much passion for what she was teaching.. Also, It was my first CPR class, a lot of terms she used was as if it we should have known already, it's a basic class, treat everyone as if they know nothing. I didn't want to ask questions, because I felt like they would have been looked at as if I was stupid. I did ask a couple of questions but I had more. I didn't want to hold up the class. For example, what do you do when someone is bleeding and you don't have gloves? Anyway, I'll just have to use common sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great learning! I took the class in August 2016. It was a good class and very hands on. I first learned CPR as a lifeguard in a waterpark and through the water aid course of Ellis and Associates. It was very strange to me to learn CPR in a classroom setting coming from a water background. I felt the info provided was really good! It seemed like it was something that could be taught through an online course since a lot of it was shown through video, however I needed the hands on training portion. Is there a way to maybe separate it into a hybrid class? Course material taken online, but the hands on in a class base setting? Might be kind of cool. Anyways, just something to think about. That's all I got. I enjoy this kind of stuff anyways. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging, lots of practice and re-checks! I took this course because I am required to be certified in First Aid and CPR/AED for my workplace. My last course 2 years ago (also from the Red Cross) was alright - this course was excellent! The instructor was engaging and encouraging and did a great job of covering all the material without losing the interest/energy of us students, which is impressive for an all-day class on a Monday. She also went out of her way to work with individuals who were struggling in order to make sure that they understood the materials. I feel much more prepared than I did before and would definitely take this class again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great instructor This was my first time taking a cpr course and I was very nervous! The instructor made a huge difference in my feelings towards the class. She was patient and very helpful and always answered all our questions. I am not one for asking questions in class but, I was comfortable enough to ask without feeling like I would make a mistake or ask a "dumb question." I also liked the scenario videos, they helped connect what we were learning to real life situations. When the class was over I felt like I learned a lot and felt prepared for any emergency situation. Definitely a great course and even better instructor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from fairly informative..expected more for the money There was mass confusion as to if the class was going to happen or not. Evidently the Chisholm Trail chapter is closing its building and perhaps moving all teaching to Dallas. Instructor was told class was cancelled..i had signed to day before with website stating 1 seat left. There were 5 on our class. Class started at 10:30 rather than 9 when instructor showed up. He gave us the 6 hr class in 4...was a very good instructor, gave us the meat and potatoes of the class. I felt there was not enough emphasis on actual first aid hands on info for anything other than CPR and AED. Recommend downloading the 176 page manual and reading that since u don't get a printer, hard copy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really DIDN'T Want to be there I attended this class because I needed to renew my CPR/First Aid/AED certification. My plan was to use it to get a part time job in the near future. I had been an Firefighter/EMT for about 30 years and continued with the CPR/First Aid certification working the last 13 or so years as a part time security. I enjoyed both jobs and wanted to continue on that path. This instructor got the entire class involved, she made it very interesting and was there to help us. When the class was about to end, I spoke out and said; "I really didn't want to be here this morning, but Ann (?) made this class very interesting and I actually enjoyed being there". I thank her in front of the entire class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience This is my 3rd Red Cross Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED course. I have been very happy with each experience. The process is very easy, organized and streamlined, course material very comprehensive, and hands on learning very effective. The instructors are top notch. My instructor Zelda in Asheville had many years of experience and was a great instructor. I would highly recommend this type of course to anyone who wants to be able to help someone in an emergency instead of being a bystander. I would highly recommend taking the course through Red Cross who specialize in this type of training.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very passionate instructor. As a relatively new retired RN I like to keep my license current. I have always recertified at the hospital where I worked. It is more a lecture on what's changed and demonstration of one's skills. I enjoyed spending my day listening and demonstrating current BLS, AED. First Aide. The group became interactive as the day went by. It was a diverse class , other nurses, nursing students and those that jobs mandated it. The instructor was passionate about his role and what he was teaching . He wanted you to succeed. I love seeing people enjoying what they do. The down side is the class is a little long

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very helpful training The "before providing care," CPR, and AED units in this course were outstanding. I feel very prepared to respond in an emergency. The miscellaneous first aid topics (burns, anaphylaxis, etc), were covered in a fairly cursory way, and I felt that we could have spent a little bit more time on this (especially in relation to what we should do while waiting for EMS in a serious situation - can we let the person fall asleep, how to handle rubberneckers) and maybe a bit of triage-related conversation (we can work with one person, but what do we do in a disaster situation with multiple injured people, etc). I do appreciate the online review materials that are available, and the info in the app!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not like teacher's attitude Teacher did not give us half an hour break to go and have lunch, so people were hungry and could not focus on material. We have been there for 6 and and half hours. The teacher was rushing through material to finish earlier and was more concern about giving our certificate than teaching us the material. He complained that he had to get up at 4 in the morning. Someone joked we will be doing first aid to each other because we were feeling faint from being hungry. The only concern teacher had was to get out of there.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not as good as it used to be, ARC must be in mode I really had high hopes for this course, having taken first aid/CPR from them in the past... However, the course was extremely light on content, and more focused on liability and calling 911. Not the instructor's fault, I think he tried to cover as much as he could above and beyond, but it was sad how little time we actually got practicing first aid dressings, splints, discussing shock, etc. I was a waste of my day, I remembered more from my first aid in the boy scouts than I learned from the course.. I know how to use an AED is about the only benefit I gained. $125 down the drain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I took the time to do this! I recently was certified for Adult/Pediatric First Aid/CRP/AED and am glad I did. The class was very informative and provided the confidence I would need to jump in and save a life. The on-line portion was a bit clunky but I made it through. The content was good but internet issues caused trouble. The classroom instruction was fun and informative. I went on to get my Instructor certification and have since certified 28 co-workers at our employer. I have a few more to go and that will provide many new first respondents to help those in need. Thank you for offering the training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great instructor I've been renewing my CPR/First Aid training for several years now and Etienne Penka was by far the best instructor I've experienced. "The man who knows how will always have a job, but the man who knows why will always be his boss." Etienne was insistent that the class not only know how to perform CPR and first aid, but why we do what we do in those situations - like what is happening in the body at the time, and how to think critically about it in an emergency. It gave me a much deeper understanding of what is happening to victims, and why certain procedures need to be followed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoroughly prepared to meet any challenges!! This course thoroughly prepared me for the physical, technical, medical challenges of responding to emergencies in the house and work place. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to be more prepared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thorough and To-The-Point The instructor, Mr. Alan Watt, has so much experience under his belt and it shows. He followed the manual "to a T", and when asked, he used realistic experiences as examples to help us better-understand when and where to put our newly-learned training into practice. I felt so confident after this class and still do. The important thing is to put a picture or circumstance with every exercise we learn, otherwise most of what you are taught will be forgotten. Take a notebook, take lots of notes, and ask questions... lots of them. A great instructor wants you to learn, not just to "become certified", but to possibly have the natural ability to step in when you are called upon to do so in an emergency! Blessings!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Adult/Pediatric CPR and First Aid Training While I was taking this course to update my last CPR/First aid training, there were several participants who were taking the class for the first time. The instructor was difficult to understand. She read verbatim from the modules to deliver the class, but skipped over all of the slides that included scenarios for us to apply what we had learned. There were hands-on activities to practice proper CPR techniques on adults, children and infants, administering the Abdominal Thrust for choking, and dressing a bleeding wound in the First Aid section. The facility itself was a comfortable temperature for a hot summer day, however, there was an overwhelming smell of mold in the classroom. Overall, I was a little disappointed in the quality of the course, given it was delivered from the American Red Cross.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well done refresher! I would highly recommend taking a first aid/CPR/AED course through the American Red Cross! I have found the instructors for the classes to always be very knowledgeable and happy to engage with participants. The class is straightforward, with videos and quick lecture points from the instructor that segues easily into hands-on experience with practice dummies for the CPR and AED portion of the class, and fellow classmates during the first aid portion. It's well worth taking the time to complete the class so that you're prepared to offer aid in the case of any emergency!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good and useful learning experience! The course was very informative and prepared me for emergency medical situations. The instructor kept a good pace for all students to learn and demonstrate their newly acquired skills. She also was engaging, gave great examples/explanations, and entertaining, which kept my attention on the course material, and was needed during the long seven hour class (9am-4pm). The facility was pleasant and clean, I could hear the instructor, see and hear the videos, there were adequate supplies on hand, and all equipment worked properly. It was a very good learning experience!
