Carolina CPR Professionals employees only the best, most qualified, and experienced instructors. All our instructors must have a minimum of two years teaching CPR or First Aid and must exhibit enthusiasm and passion for knowledge.
All instructors must be authorized by the organization whose curriculum they are teaching. For example an instructor teaching American Heart Association CPR must be properly trained and certified by the American Heart Association. This certification must be current and they are obligated to teach the material in the manner dictated by the certifying agency.
Carolina CPR Professionals does not provide, alter or otherwise influence the presentation of any of these curricula.
