"Excellent case scenarios & practicing different roles." - Kuan (Mar 2022)
"the 3 simple steps can tell you where to look or where the issue is from. from that you can tell what you see with those steps" - Michael (Feb 2022)
"This class was great. It was my second time taking it. I should have stuck with the 3 step process vs. the 10 step I had to learn from job. This makes the process of identifying the rhythm much easier and you are able to make sense of where the impulse is originating from." - Nika (Feb 2022)
"Excellent content and teaching tailored to each learners work environment and skill set."- Kate (Jan 2022)
"Excellent relevant course delivered in a captivating and efficient manner." - Khadija (Jan 2022)
"I honestly didn't know what to expect. I've read the infamous orange book cover to cover and still didn't understand. Taking this course was an effort to help and hopefully make a huge part of my future career and little easier to understand when I start school. I am EVER so grateful for this course and for what I was able to learn...this course has definitely made things click! The simple steps toward reading EKGs was helpful and stick well. Very impressed by this course. I liked the small class size and engagement. I want all of my colleagues to take this course! I honestly wasn't sure how the online format would work but as someone who is an advocate for in person learning, this online format worked!" - Alia (Jan 2022)
"The part that resonated with me was being able to quickly recognize various rhythms and that the process always starts with evaluating your patient. It's really easy to focus on the heart monitor and not the patient so beginning with that as the first set of the process really helps." - Marcel (Sep 2021)
"Having Part 1 online is a great idea so this way ACLS doesn't seem long. Having a 4-5 hr in person class is long enough." - Jessica (Aug 2021)
"First time taking BLS and ACLS but it was an amazing learning experience. I find that doing the split of online and hands on is a good mix." - Paramvir (Aug 2021)
"Stimulating topics as well mostly because it was so practical. Walking through real scenarios helps in decision making in real life. Revisiting the pharmacodynamics of the medications we use is very helpful because it translates to real life usage." - Jason (June 2021)
