Good Afternoon Defib

I had my BLS course yesterday . Service was great. The receptionist greeted me with a smile ..

Facility was clean . One thing I would say is that it was cold and other students agreed as well . I always enjoy Bob F. his instruction makes the class enjoyable. He is easily approachable when I have questions or concerns and very knowledgeable.

See you in two years
