Take a CPR, BLS or first aid class at your home or business
I teach on-demand, on-site safety classes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area — you choose the time and place of your class, and I bring the classroom to you. There is no minimum number of students needed to set up a class with me.
- BLS (Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers)
- First Aid
- Pediatric First Aid
- Bloodborne Pathogens
- Adult, Child and Infant CPR/AED
- First Aid
I can also create a class that focuses on the safety skills most important to you and your family.

New Parents and Custom Classes
If you are pregnant or have recently given birth, you are well aware that baby safety involves learning many new skills. One of those skills is CPR training for infants, toddlers and children. My CPR Essentials Class is designed for new parents who want to learn CPR, but don’t need a CPR certification. The class also covers how to respond to choking emergencies.
Because this isn’t a certification class, it’s flexible, so we can cover the safety skills most important to you. Additional topics I can teach you to respond to: seizures, allergic reactions, using an epinephrine pen, asthma, drowning, bleeding, burns, infections, using an AED, bites and stings, sprains and broken bones.
Certification Classes for the Public
Professions and individuals that usually need a CPR/AED or first aid certification, include:
- Athletic coach
- Adopting parents
- Special education teacher
- Camp counselor
- School bus driver
- Personal trainer
- Au pair
- Pharmacy technician
- Nursing home employee
- Construction worker
Many employers or government agencies accept both American Heart Association (AHA) and American Red Cross (ARC) certification cards, but some want one organization’s certification and not the other. Check with the person requiring a certification if they have a preference before signing up for a class with me!
I offer healthcare provider CPR certifications through the American Heart Association. Their Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers class (BLS) is often the preferred certification for healthcare professionals. Professions that require a BLS CPR certification are:
- Nurse (RN)
- Licensed vocational nurse (LVN)
- Nursing assistant (certified nursing assistant, CNA)
- Nursing student
- Clinical/medical technician
- Dental assistant
- Respiratory therapist
- Emergency medical technician (EMT)
- Emergency medical responder (EMR)
- Physical therapist
- Occupational therapist
I do many short-notice classes for people who need a current BLS certification card for their work. As a certified instructor for the AHA, I can give you your certification card at the end of our class.
For childcare workers, I teach the American Heart Association’s pediatric first aid with CPR/AED course. This satisfies the requirements of the EMSA (Emergency Medical Services Authority) for California childcare workers.
Typically, this class takes 8 hours in a large community class. If you have a smaller group (fewer than 6 people), I can teach this class in about 5 hours.
If you have many people in need of a class, I can help you. Whether it’s your school staff, sports team, skilled nursing facility employees, or your company, I can bring the equipment and additional instructors needed to make your large class happen.
