We are Hands On folks! We go to the customer's location to do the training, we provide all equipment and visual aids. We also are the only group in the entire area offering DOG CPR! We have the DOG CPR training aids to offer services to Pet Owners and Vetranarian Personel alike. Any situation the customer needs special consideration for we strive to meet the need, whether it be the time of day or setting. We will work one on one from a single student to larger groups as the demand requires. Our customers are our focus, their needs and satisfaction is our ultimate goal.
I enjoy working with the people, we are all people orientated.

Find out the specific need that the student has and work with them to set up the training session to get their certification. While we have taught standard CPR and First Aid all along we now offer DOG CPR with the appropriate training aids.
Myself, and all of our instructors are Nationally American Heart Association Certified Instructors and carry specific credentials, as well as some, have additional degrees, and certifications from other organizations such as the American Red Cross and other National and International governing bodies and educational institutions.
There are base prices set by the AHA, however, there are many pricing structures and discounts that apply to different students and situations. These are too wide and varied to quote here. In general, prices start at $35.00 but in some instances, there are classes that are as low as $10.00. This is not a one size fits all situation.
I started at age 21 working with Boy Scouts and other youth groups. I saw the need when on a hiking trip on the Appalachian Trail miles from any medical facility when a young man hit his own leg with an axe. I had been 1st Aid trained but saw the need for others to be trained as well at that point and realized that many other folks had similar need whether on an outing or working on remote locations such as power company people and other workers.
An associate and I were going to dinner late one evening when we came upon a Vetranarian Hospital that was on fire. We stopped to see what we could do. After notifying the Fire Dept we began evacuating the animals. Most were dogs. We were able to get the cats from their cages into carriers and get them to the lawn, then we started removing the dogs caging the ones we could and utilizing the leashes and tie-outs that were for sale in the front of the building we removed the larger dogs tieing them to anything we could away from the burning building. Some were having difficulty breathing, we worked with them the best we could until some of the fire personnel we able to administer oxygen through a makeshift breathing apparatus. At that time I saw the need for Animal First Aid and have worked with various Vetranarian personnel to come up with methods to help injured animals until proper care can be administered.
I have worked with children as young as 8 years old as well as professional people well into their 80's, teaching 1st Aid, AED CPR, and Medical Personel Basic Life Support certifications that they are required to have.
As children often do my children were always coming in with a bird with an injured wing or hurt Kitten or Puppy so I have taught my children how to deal with animal injuries as well as human.
One of my most recent events that I was impressed by was having worked with a youth group teaching CPR and 1st Aid, not long afterward I was contacted by one of the students who told me of an incident while on a church outing someone fell. The young man said he first thought it was a slip and fall situation and First Aid might be required, but upon reaching the individual who had fallen they were having trouble breathing. While the student was fully ready to provide CPR if needed it turned out to be an allergic reaction, proper care was administered and emergency personnel were notified and responded, treating and transporting the patient to a local emergency care facility. Had this young man not been trained and with the group it is unclear how the stricken individual would have faired.
Find someone you are comfortable working with and who will work with your needs and specific situation. Folks who just say be here we start so and so and don't forget your money, are not who you should be looking for. It is true that good training does incur a cost, the instructor should first be concerned with meeting your specific individual needs!
What are the student's specific goal or goals? Such as are you just looking for a certificate? If so what specific certificate. Do you require or need specific training such as is this individual training or will you be working in a group setting? Is this a School or Medical Job related requirement? Is this informational only? i.e. Do you just want the training to be prepared in case you are in a situation that someone may need help or do you need specific 1st Aid or CPR AED Training? These and other specifics to your situation should always be considered because of not only costs involved but time in training also.
