Like the other courses I've taken at MPT, this one was outstanding. As a retired firefighter/paramedic, Basic First Aid could have been a snooze fest, but it wasn't. It was well paced, engaging, and informative, and the instructor was first rate. Thanks again MPT!

No improvements to suggest for this course. Instructors for the CPR course were fantastic! They were obviously VERY knowledgeable about the subject and used good stories to drive points home. Office staff is always friendly and helpful at MPT, and campus is always comfortably clean
