My instructor was very professional, personable & knowledgeable. He not only went through all the hands-on procedures with us, but he took the time to teach us about the anatomical processes that a person in need of CPR is experiencing -- answering why we're doing what we're doing to help save a life. Thank you Cape Cod CPR!"
