I now have a classroom in Redwood City for CPR, First Aid and BLS classes

I recently opened a small classroom in downtown Redwood City at 200 Main Street, just a couple minutes from Highway 101. It seats a maximum of 14 people, so there are plenty of chances to ask questions and still receive hands-on instruction. You will receive your certification card at the classroom.
I also have two excellent instructors helping me teach classes there: Margarita Bekker and Inga Lind.
Currently, we are offering classes on Friday mornings and Saturdays. Click on this link to see a list of our classes: Redwood City CPR Classes. You can register on the website for the class you want by filling out a short on-line form. Pay at the classroom.
These are the American Heart Association classes we are offering in Redwood City:
1) CPR AED. This class covers infant, child and adult CPR, how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) as well as responding to choking emergencies.
2) Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers. This is also often called “BLS”. This is the CPR class for people who work in healthcare: EMT, dentist, respiratory therapist, medical assistant, RN, etc.
3) First Aid. This class covers bleeding, bites, stings, responding to heart attacks and strokes, responses to choking, heat and cold emergencies, treating sprains and broken bones, responding to breathing problems, including using an epi-pen.
4) Pediatric First Aid with CPR AED. This class covers first aid topics with a focus on children, but covers CPR for infants, children and adults. This is the class you need to take if you work in a daycare or a preschool as required by the EMSA. It’s also a great class for parents with infants or young children.
