Excellent course. The instructor was relaxed, focused and thoroughly knowledgeable about the material. The pace was just right and I scored a 100 on the exam because he was such a great instructor.

It was very convenient since there were little options in my local area. The instructor was very knowledgeable and his background was on track with what BLS should be about.

I took my EMT practical test with code one. The staff are super nice and helpful, very good at explaining the instructions. The location itself is clean spacious and easy to find. I recommend it to other EMT testers.
