Welcome! My name is Diane Buhler and I have worked in the field of Occupational Therapy for 25 years with the pediatric, young adult, and geriatric populations.
A few years ago my husband Bob and I made the move to beautiful St Augustine and started "CPR Training of St Augustine", we recently moved to Edgewater Florida and now do classes in St Johns, Flagler, and Volusia Counties. This is why we changed our name to Paradise CPR Training. We have affordable CPR courses and most classes get you your American Heart Association certification card the same day that you take the class.
I look forward to helping many people feel confident using CPR to save a loved one, a neighbor, or even a complete stranger. I am also excited to be able to offer courses at our place, For larger groups, we also teach groups at your workplace!
If this is your first time taking a CPR course we understand it can be confusing and we are here to help. If you need CPR for school or your job, to often, people take a Red Cross CPR course only to find out later that they needed American Heart Association certification. Most places want American Heart Association certification. There are also online certification programs, they are not the same. We do not recommend any of these since there is no manikin training or a live instructor and they are not accepted by most Healthcare facilities or schools. The American Heart Association does offer an online course called HeartCode. It is a blended learning course where some learning is done online and some in person. We do offer the in person portion of this course, but it is more expensive to pay for the online course and then pay again for the in person portion.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have, and we will make sure to get you the correct course. I hope to see you soon!
