CPR Plus has been a great organization to work for. My co-workers have taught me a great deal over the years on how to be an engaging and interactive instructor. My passion is to share knowledge and to be a “sponge” when others go out of their way to teach me new things. Life is always a learning process.

I love the fact that people truly want to learn how to help other people.
I’m a registered respiratory therapist, and I practiced for 15 years. I’ve worked with CPR Plus for three years, and the best part is the students and clients.

I also love that companies can have us come to them, so it’s convenient for their employees to have instruction without needing to go somewhere else.
Paramedic & CPR Plus Instructor
This is one of the best teams I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
Aside from the work I do with CPR Plus, I have been in EMS for almost 14 years, 12 of which I have served as a Paramedic.
I have been an instructor off and on for the last 10 years or so, and have regularly taught classes for the last several years. What I really enjoy about being an instructor with CPR Plus is the passion and dedication that each member of the team, from Stacy down, brings to the classroom.
