Student Testimonials


I spent 15 years as a firefighter and paramedic, and reading an EKG does not have to be confusing…

If you’ve never received training, an EKG can be intimidating. After all, quick interpretation of the results can be the difference between life and death. You want to be sure you’re doing it correctly. It takes the right training course to become confident in your skills. That’s why I decided to create a thorough, engaging EKG certification class at SureFire CPR. I want all our students to leave the course feeling ready to use their knowledge in the field and interpret EKGs with ease.
