“Ben from Georgia CPR instructed a CPR/ AED and First Aid class for us. His teaching style was fun, engaging, and most of all memorable. Each detail of each section was taught in a way that our coworkers could relate to realistically.
We had a large group; however Ben was successful at providing individual attention. He had a very encouraging way of reinforcing anything a coworker was struggling with and had an answer for every question.
I don’t worry that our coworkers are unprepared for any situation. There were enough dummies and supplies for everyone to practice each procedure.
Georgia CPR’s lesson was much more thorough than the training I have had in the past. For a savvy workforce, I recommend Georgia CPR.”

“I underwent renewal of BLS/ACLS last evening and I wanted to give some feedback. I have now been BLS, and/or ACLS certified for 12 yrs and have taken courses from many different instructors in that time. I have to say, though, that Ben Karp’s group at GA-CPR was the best.
Ben’s BLS instruction was well-tuned for his audience and, unlike previous instructors I’ve had, didn’t downplay the importance of BLS skills. He clearly believes, as I do and as the scientific evidence supports, that good basic life support is the key to patient survival in both lay and professional settings. When trainees were not performing skills correctly he had the exact right tone in making recommendations — he realized that he was dealing with educated professionals who may not do CPR, etc everyday, but who need to be treated with respect.
I have seen instructors belittle trainees in these settings before, or act as though the basics were a “waste of time.” The nurses he brought in for ACLS instruction were excellent also and made sure that trainees understood the ACLS algorithms and the real world resuscitation. I think GME’s choice of Georgia CPR was an excellent one, and I would recommend staying with them in the future.
Please let all who are involved in the decision-making know about the excellent job Ben has done.”
