I attended CPR123 with Paramedic American Heart Association Instructor Paul E. Abate a few days ago in Manhattan. I was intrigued by the new approaches to CPR. My motivation to attend (retired CNP, MPH, Ed.D.) was to refresh my skills to possibly assist an individual collapsing in the streets (if this ever happened in my presence). Mr. Abate was absolutely wonderful; a great trainer skillfully mixing the media, his own demonstration, and the practicum. He appropriately referred to the ” CPR book” by indicating the page number. He covered all topics with skill, humor, and live examples based on his experience. He responded to all questions from the audience. Manikins and others were updated from the past and excellent for training. I strongly encourage CPR123 to keep him as a trainer as long as he is interested in training individuals (health and others) who are interested in helping ordinary New Yorkers. Thank you Mr. Abate, for being such a motivational leader. Gilberte V.
Great location. Great PALS course. Nemo presented and explained everything thoroughly. Simulation room well equiped. See you in 2 years !!!!
I took BLS in 2012 and ACLS this year, both with Nemo, at the Manhattan location. He is an excellent instructor! I cannot recommend him highly enough. Obviously you cannot learn everything in just a few hours, but he really emphasized the most important points, so I feel more confidant about approaching an emergency situation now (and anyone who lives in NYC knows that the odds of encountering a person who passes out in front of you are pretty high). I also took an I.V. course here this summer, and the instructor of that was also great- she was an R.N. with years of experience and she also happened to be a good teacher. So, I can say that from my experience, they have awesome, highly qualified instructors here at CPR123.
I took the ACLS and BLS recertification course at the Manhattan location. Great course. Efficient instruction. Competent instructors. I would definitely consider CPR123 for any ACLS or BLS certification. They are also looking to expand their course directory to offer more certifications. Highly recommended.
Took Initial ACLS class with Nemesio at the Manhattan location. He is an awesome instructor! Provided great real life scenarios and structured the course in a way that really helped me understand the content. I am so glad I took a chance with this company! Will definitely take more classes here in the future. Front desk staff was very nice and location is convenient. 5 stars!
I took ACLS and BLS at the midtown office and PALS at the Queens office. I had Nemo as an instructor each time. He was great. He made the day enjoyable and the material less overwhelming by presenting it clearly. He made you feel comfortable and made the time zip by quickly. The algorithms were especially made easier because he went thru them all one by one and made it easy to memorize. I highly recommend CPR123 and recommend making sure that Nemo is teaching the course you want to take.
I recently took an ACLS class through CPR123 and, in comparison to other ACLS classes I have taken, this one was by far the best. Nemo, the instructor, is hands-down one of the best teachers I have had. He made the class, which can be tough, easy to understand, simplified the algorithms, and made sure that everyone was one the same page before moving on. Great class to take and signing up online is simple. All around, 5-stars.
It’s a simple process for registration. The online training option is a good alternative if you have the discipline to stay on the session. The testing on site is also very straight forward and fast. However, I would not recommend this online option for someone learning CPR for the first time.
I’ve taken and taught a number of ACLS courses. This was the best I’ve seen. Efficient, considerate and interesting teaching by really nice and competent people.
I just took the BLS course for healthcare providers this past Monday at the Mineola location with the instructor named Sam. It was an excellent class, I highly recommend it. Sam was very good, he was clear and has a lot of experience in the healthcare field. We got lots of practice and he made sure we completely understood all the information and could apply it before taking the test. Class started on time, free parking and very convenient location.
I took the BLS course a few days ago in the Mineola location. My instructor’s name was Sam and he was great. He knew his material, knew how to teach and was very entertaining as well. The 3 hour class flew by and I felt that I really learned alot. The location is convenient, free parking is always a plus and it was very affordable. Will be coming back for ACLS because of the caliber of the instructor and the overall professional demeanor of the staff
Just took my CPR class this past Sunday. I will have to say I left there knowing a lot more than when I came in. The instructor is very clear and has alot of personality so it wasn’t too terrible on a Sunday morning at 10am. (He didn’t keep us there until 2pm which also was great) I went to the Kew Gardens location which was convenient since I live in Queens. They give you your card as soon as your done which is perfect for people who need that certification ASAP. I did it because I need it for nursing school and I can honestly say if someone is choking or needs CPR I feel like I’ll know what to do.
Def would recommend this to anyone needing there certification.
I did ACLS and BLS with them, and they were awesome! The staff is friendly, patient and knowledgeable, and they offer instructive feedback that I found very helpful. I liked that they created a comfortable, stress free environment that allowed me to learn the material. I will definitely be returning to them for re-certifications.
I attended this CPR/First-aid class offered at my office. I was an EMT for a short time during college and thought it was important to brush up on basic skills. Paul, the instructor, was awesome! He is certainly an expert in the field and he makes the class fun. I was impressed with the way he interacted with the entire room and kept everyone engaged.
Affordable, efficient, and knowledgeable. The location and time was convenient and the teacher was excellent.
My instructor was Nemo. Hi energy, but he kept the nervousnous to a very low key and was able to enable us to learn easily and absorb an unusually large portion of information and practice skills easily. As a nurse, I thought he was one of the better “nurses” that I have met, an unusually great understanding of how health and health issues are connected to each other. Learned a ton. Very grateful. Highly recommend CPR123 ( aka Health Force Solutions) and Nemo. The back up staff ( Jen and an associate) were great as well. Made everyone feel at home.
I took the Heart Saver AED CPR this past Monday. Their office is easy to find and the visitor parking is free. That’s a bonus. It was easy to reserve a seat and then register for the class. They respond quickly. No wait time. I registered 2 days before the class date and was still able to get a seat. The Instructor, Nemo, was very knowledgeable and experienced and made the class fun. I have already recommended CPR123 to my coworkers. Would definitely take a class with them again.
This is a great place to get AHA certified. Sam and Nemo are great. The plastic Models were clean and made the learning process easier. I definitely recommend you check this place out. I went to their Queens branch to re-certify for my ACLS and enjoyed it so much that i went back and took some of their other classes. I definitely recommend the ECG Class.
Excellent staff,patient, effiicient and very knowledgeable.I have been a RN for over 30 years and have had to obtain my BCLS ACLS many times. Took BCLS here and was very impressed…may very well be the best instruction ever.

I took the professional BLS/ACLS course from CPR123 and really felt like they prepared me and helped me understand the concepts. The teachers (Nemo, Ben, and Sam) were fantastic and I feel completely confident in the skills i learned in class.
Thank you CPR123!
If you need your BLS or any other healthcare related certification like ACLS, IV cert, or PALS, I highly recommend this place. The instructor was amazing giving us clear concise information and training. Plenty of hands on making his class interesting and fun. By far the most cost effective place I found and centrally located in the heart of Manhattan so it was easy to get to. Also, you get your certification on the same date. Liked them so much that I will definitively go back when its time to renew.
I took the PALS course here in June (they switched their name now to CPR 123.) I wasn’t sure what to expect, but this was actually a really excellent, high quality course. We had 2 instructors, Sam and Nimo, and they both knew their stuff and knew how to teach it. I highly recommend them.
I attended my bls course at cpr123. I have been taking bls classes for years. cpr123 made the class fun and enjoyable. The instructor was very helpful and didn’t waste our time with story telling like other places I have trained with. I will definitely return to cpr123 for my advanced class needs. Thanks guy’s it was great!
I really enjoyed my BLS class at CPR123. My Instructor was very helpful and I was able to get my certification for work. The location is great because I work in the heart of the medical center. Thank you Cpr123 you guys are great!
This is the best place to take your BLS classes. The instructors are well informed and they treat you with the up most respect. They also offer all advanced classes for training. ACLS and PALS courses. I encourage all healthcare professionals to take their classes with CPR123! !!!
Need a last minute certification for BLS and they were able to accommodate. They are a new company that just started, I only did BLS skills with them, but the instructor was very nice and informative. I saw lots of high tech equipment and the place is very organized and clean…will be doing my advance courses here.
Great very knowledgeable instructor who uses several methods of teaching to fit anyone’s learning style! I would Highly Highly Recommend taking your certs or re-certs here!
