BLS, CPR, AED & First Aid Training Courses taught in accordance with American Heart Association Guidelines

My name is Jessica and I founded Pensacola Keep the Beat Alive CPR.  I am a Registered Nurse and have spent the last 10 years caring for patients in healthcare settings. I decided to become a CPR instructor because I have a passion to help people gain life saving knowledge and skills.  I am dedicated to making learning easy, accessible and fun. I realized there was a need for CPR classes outside the M-F work day. I am available for weekend classes. I can arrange a class onsite at your preferred location or place of business. I also schedule and host classes monthly (see my events page for dates & times). Check out the site to learn about what services I have to offer and give me a call to schedule a training class today!

Social Distancing


I know in light of COVID19 it can be concerning signing up for a training class with a large group of people. However, it is essential that our healthcare and daycare workers stay up to date on their certifications and cpr skills. That is why all equipment is sanitized between use, hand sanitizer and gloves are required during hands on activities, and masks are also available and encouraged when social distancing is not feasible or for team activities.

I also offer the AHA’s blended course options. The eLearning and in-person blended courses from the AHA are a fast and convenient way to schedule your certification while limiting exposure with shorter and smaller in person classes. Please see the course information regarding blended course options. 

American Heart Association's blended eLearning (with in person skills testing) program certification is equivalent to a regular 100% class room training and the same card is issued at completion of the course for both classroom and blended eLearning courses.

I am also fully vaccinated and will wear a mask upon request. 


Learn the skills you need to save lives.

I am very flexible with course times and schedules, so if you can’t find something that works for you, simply get in touch.
