I was in a bind to complete my CPR and ACLS training quickly and came across Above Bar CPR in the Santa Cruz area. I have been a nurse for many years and been through alot of CPR and ACLS classes (BIG SNOOZERS!) After completing both the CPR and ACLS training sessions through Above Bar, I can say without hesitation that I have never attended a session that was so engaging, so educational and SO worth my time and money.
The instructors were great – all knowledgeable and experienced. My CPR instructor was a fireman and my ACLS instructor was an experienced critical care flight nurse. I’m not sure about you, but if someone is going to teach me how to save lives, I want to go to an expert. Both of my instructors certainly fit that qualification.
The classes overall were very enjoyable and the equipment that provided was clean and state-of-the-art. The CPR dummies that were used during the classes accurately measure the speed and effectiveness of your compressions. This was really helpful.
Overall, I can’t rave enough about the experience. I would definitely recommend Above Bar!
This class was very helpful, fun informative. I have had my cpr certification for the last 8yrs this wws the best experience I have had.
I took the Above Bar CPR training in First Aid, AED and CPR on April 13 just in time! This week during my evening commute, a fellow passenger suffered a heart attack, and I was one of a team of three who resuscitated the man. By the time we reached San Francisco where an ambulance was waiting, the man’s eyes were open and he was breathing again! EMT told me he would have died if he hadn’t received CPR.
When I left your class last month I felt confident I had learned an important new skill. I bought the face shield in the small pouch to hang on my keychain as a reminder to me that I was certified to do CPR and shouldn’t hesitate act. Little did I know that four weeks later I would have the opportunity use my training. During the strange time warp that surrounds all emergency situations, and pumped full of adrenaline, I was able to bring to mind your coaching during class, which helped me to maintain my focus so I could do my job.
Thank you, Jason, for the thorough training I received from you and your team. It proved to be invaluable!
WOW! Jason and his team were incredibly efficient. But efficiency doesnt set the bar. Excellent people skills does, and an incredible sense of humor. At 8 o clock in the morning, Jason had my coworkers and I in stitches! Out of all the CPR trainings I’ve been to, his was the most engaging and definitely the most interesting. Thanks Jason! You set the bar! Unbeatable, overall.
Jason was awesome! It was quick and easy to sign up for classes. I had an emergency work situation and needed to be certified quickly, and he totally worked around my schedule. Was completely painless and actually kind of fun! Never had that kind of experience in a CPR class before.
My business partner and I are healthcare providers and needed to renew our recently-expired CPR licenses quickly. In this area, there are very few places that offer these renewal courses and virtually NONE with the convenient plethora of class times/dates, and for very reasonable prices.
Jason keeps the class sizes small so that you get through it quickly and efficiently. He has new, quality training dummies that make the learning experience as realistic as possible. Besides being knowledgeable about his work, he’s really friendly and is an excellent communicator.
We will definitely renew again with Above Bar CPR. He even offers private classes for groups and when we get more employees, we will definitely send them here.
Jason and Coy were fun and knowledgeable. Anyone who wants to take a class needs to “DO IT NOW!”
