Customer Feedback

The majority of my employees who participated in the training have previously been FA/CPR certified, and they all agreed that First Response led one of the most informative classes they had ever taken. We all walked away for the program feeling prepared to handle an emergency if one were ever to occur. The instructor made the class interesting, fun, and addressed specific concerns I had discussed with him prior to training that tailored to our individual program. I will highly recommend him and First Response to other groups in the future.
I participated in a CPR/first aid class yesterday taught by First Response and I wanted to let you know how wonderful the instructor was!!!! From my many experiences taking this class it has always been boring and seemed to take forever to be over. But the instructor made the class entertaining and humorous at times (in an appropriate way, I might add), so that I actually had fun!! I also learned several new things during the class! I felt like she wanted to be there and not that she HAD to be there. She also, made me feel relaxed when usually I'm worried that I'll make a fool of myself or do something wrong. What a joy she was!!!
First Response has done our CPR/First AID Training for several years now. He is always a pleasant, good instructor, makes the courses interesting, and is most helpful one-on-one and with the class as a whole. He relates the courses to what we do here. He is very observant of our facility and its needs, and he is genuinely interested in and willing to do what he can in order to aid us in helping the children.
The class could not have been better! She did an outstanding job and kept the attention of the teachers. All the information was certainly what is needed to know and she presented it in an educated, organized, timely manner.
