FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We get "beginner" students (those who have never taken CPR before) frequently.  We try to keep the atmosphere comfortable for all with humor and a friendly attitude.  We pace the class so that beginners get adequate practice time.  It helps that we have a very large supply of manikins.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

For years, I worked as a therapist in psychiatric settings.  That work helped me learn to relate to others in a clear, friendly and sensitive way.  Later, when i received my EMT training and certification, my knowledge base and experience was broadened, which increased my confidence to teach.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Our prices are very reasonable compared to other programs. For our public classes, it depends on which class you are taking.  Right now the HEARTSAVER CPR AED (basic certification) class is $45 and the BASIC LIFE SUPPORT (for healthcare professionals) is $55.  For current prices, visit our website www.HealthEdNewEngland.com. 


How did you get started teaching?

While working as a therapist in a large hospital, i took my CPR training.  I really enjoyed it and it seemed like something i would be good at. So i bought some manikins and opened up shop part time.  Eventually i quit that job to pursue this business full time, and have never looked back.


What types of students have you worked with?

Everyone!  Old, young, disabled, healthy, healthcare professionals, parents, babysitters, you name it!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A woman contacted me because after taking my class, she ended up using her skills to save her husband in cardiac arrest. She was so grateful she had come to my class.  Will never forgot that.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Try to hire a teacher who has some experience in teaching CPR skills.  Make sure they grant official certification for completing the course, such as American Heart Association or Red Cross.  And please, don't take an online course without any classroom/in person session. Make sure you will get an opportunity to practice skills on a manikin!
