Robinson CPR & First Aid training is dedicated to preparing everyone with the lifesaving skills of CPR & First Aid. Our classes are engaging, informative and fun. We keep things moving and easy to learn while you are constantly learning along the way.
You may receive your certification card the same day or within 24 hours depending on when you set up your class date. All American Heart Association certifications are valid for 2 years.
Our CPR classes include lessons and skills check off for Adult, Child, and Infant, AED training, choking and special circumstances. You are instructed on technique and proper administration for each population you serve. We specialize in both BLS Provider CPR (formerly called Health Care Provider CPR) and HeartSaver CPR (for Laypersons).
Our First Aid class can be taught in combination with the CPR class or alone. Students get to learn about other emergency care such as injuries, splinting, recognizing medical emergencies, environmental emergencies and more. Students will actively engage necessary skills to handle even more emergency situations beyond the heart and lung support.
I have been an American Heart Association instructor since 2000 for Novant Health Physician Network, while working as one of the float nurses in the network.
Since my training my team and I have been able to assist community health programs, church organizations, lawyers offices, girl scouts, foster care parents, and healthcare professionals gain proficiency in delivering CPR and First Aid.
It's so rewarding to have students return to tell how they were able to help extend the life of others and to know what to do in various emergencies.
I enjoy the variety of personalities we get to interact with all eager to learn how to help save lives. It's rewarding to hear students tell me how they helped a choking loved one or was glad they knew what to do for a seizure or cardiac arrest.
Many of my family members have suffered from heart disease and I feel I honor them in equipping others with information and skills to reduce those life-threatening experiences. Most of all, I absolutely love to teach!
Convenient timing,location and duration
She made CPR/first aid fun and engaging. This is my 3rd time getting certified and I feel the most comfortable about knowing what to do in any situation. Robinson CPR doesn't just treat it as a test to get a certification but rather as a learning experience to save lives.
The training was informative. It can be a tedious process learning this information, but the instructor had the excitement and energy to keep me interested.
The class was done in an orderly and professional manner. Everything was clear and easy to understand without feeling boring. Highly recommend for training
New students get my undivided attention in training. I'm patient and keep the class experience interesting and engaging. Existing classes can be joined by request. Fees are collected prior to each class and missed classes have the option to reschedule in up to 6 months with an existing class.
I practice as a clinical certified medical assistant over 20 years in various specialty offices from Internal Medicine, Respiration Dept, Cardiology, GI, Nephrology, Pediatrics, General practitioner offices. My certification for the American Heart Association when I was then titled an Office Nurse at Kouri Medical Center in Charlotte, NC. My training center hub is Innovative Solutionsin Charlotte, NC. Currently, I teach classes on and off campus and off at Life University in Mariettea, GA for a doctorate program. Those proceeds are helping to cover the cost of my continued education.
Typically my regular price for each class is $55/pp. However, I do offer promotional pricing and discounts for non-profits, large groups (7 or more), and religious organizations. On campus, I do offer a student rate as well.
Some discounting is offered for combination classes such as CPR & First Aid training.
Personally, I have always loved teaching. I recall teaching to my baby dolls, or our animals while growing up. At 13 years old, my church had us teaching even the babies in the nursery and eventually, I ended up teaching Kids church and Sunday school. There has constantly been a yearning to learn and a passion for teaching in me for as long as I can remember. Perhaps that is what is drawing me to be a doctor. I witnesses several helpless moments in people around me having health emergencies and not knowing what to do. So when the opportunity came to teach CPR & First Aid I leaped in and love every moment. My students tell me they love my classes because I do try to keep it light and fun in the learning process. Most of all, I love helping people get and feel better.
Initially, I had to train my peers in the office and other sites in the hospital network including doctors, nurses, secretaries and more. As I become more active in the community I have been able to teach daycare workers, foster parents, lawyers, church officers, ushers and nurses boards and more. I have held classes for the Cabarrus Health Alliance and Mecklenburg County Health Department's community outreach departments. I had the most fun teaching girl scouts first aid! We had so much fun with their creative fun.
One of the last classes I taught last quarter I get to teach a visually impaired student. We both learned something that day and he did an excellent job. I even got to witness his determination and adapting to his personally challenges beautifully. That will remain a fond experience for me. Unstoppable!
As you search for training for CPR & First Aid. Please consider that you are going to be training to help save someone's life. Be sure to get hands-on training because a video alone is not enough to prepare you for a real emergency. The feedback you get from an experienced instructor will better prepare you if you ever have to use your skills. Inquire about the content and what to expect from your class then choose the best trainer for your needs.
Think about your time commitment to the training. Most CPR trainers expect payment in advance with no refund to insure the classes will hold. Be sure to select the right time for you in the options given and commit to going to class.
Next, ask how soon you can expect to receive your certification card. Currently, active instructors can get you a digital card on the same day or the next business day.
Be sure you tell the instructor why you need the training so you will get the right version for you. For instance, if you are going to be a Daycare Worker, the regular HeartSaver CPR is not what you will need. There is now a new Pediatric part of that class and you are usually required to have both CPR & First Aid. If you plan the work in a healthcare setting train for the BLS Provider so you are completely prepared.
Plan to be mentally and physically present during class...someone's life is depending on you.
