    Great experience. I feel I am much better prepared to face a life saving situation head on than after any other course. I definitely recommend Farley and the people at NW Best CPR?

  • VH

    This is the best CPR class I have taken so far! I'm a healthcare provider who needs to renew BLS/CPR class every two years. The instructor Farley made the class interactive and very hands on. Did not check the clock once during the class. This is the first time I could honestly say that I'm confident and ready to apply My CPR skills on anyone who needs it. Highly recommended!!

  • Courtney Nau

    Farley is an amazing educator. This training was more hands-on than any first-aid training I've been to, interactive, and entertaining to boot. I appreciated the level of knowledge I came out of the class with and would recommend this training to other organizations who are looking to increase their level of preparedness in first-aid/CPR situations.

    Best BLS class ever! Farley really knows his stuff and is an empowering and engaging instructor!
