  • This was the first time I have attended a class and the instructors were very welcoming and knowledgeable. From talking to me, they realized for my career path that I would need BSL as well and allowed me to take the class without additional charge. There was also an issue with my mailing address for a book they provide with BSL and I received a call to verify the information. I highly recommend Nelson's CPR & First Aid Training.
  • Our company hired Nelson to recertify all of us in CPR, First Aid, AED and Emergency Oxygen Administration. I have to say that I've been certified in all the above for 20 years and Nelson's class has BY FAR been the most educating and thorough class I have ever been a part of! Punctual, hygienic, professional, thorough, fairly priced and accommodating are all words I would use to describe Nelson and his assistant, CC. If you are looking for a company to train you, your employees or your Nelson. They can come to you under certain requirements being met first. We WILL be calling them back to be recertified in 2 years!!!
  • Nelson is an excellent instructor. Extremely knowledgeable and excellent communicator.
  • This was a great course for the 65+ community. Nelson DeJesus Sr., did a wonderful job. He made the material memorable and easy to follow. His personality is well-suited for training. I believe I am significantly better able to help someone in an emergency.

  • Nelson DeJesus was a great instructor. I felt like I got the most out of my first AID/CPR training this time due to how efficiently the class instructor led the course.
  • I just wanted to drop you a note and say THANK YOU, Merci, Gracias, Danki, Danke for the warm, funny and enjoyable personality that you have! Honestly, for the first time, I understood everything you taught me when I attended your last Saturday class.  I was happy that you provided me the perfect scenario during First Aid ~ I am volunteering this week at Idlewild Baptist Church Vacation Bible School and one of my students has a Highly Severe Allergy. She is only 2 years old and I am so happy that I am prepared to assist her.

  • Mr. DeJesus knows his subject, That is a basic requirement of a trainer. Where he outshines his contempories is in the excitement he brings into the classroom. He loves what he does and it is contagious. Bravo Nelson DeJesus!
