Here's what some of our past students have to say about our teaching.

Dennis taught me infant CPR following the birth of my first child over 12 years ago. His experience helped me save my son's life when he choked on a piece of candy. I can't thank him enough!

Melissa S.

His use of concrete and real life examples will make the information stick. Easier to remember to do something if you understand why you’re doing it.

Jodi L.

I will absolutely be recommending my co-workers come here for their recerts.

Cinde P.

Best class I've been in... and I've been in a lot.

Noelle L.

Why didn't we have instructors like you in nursing school? I wouldn't have had to drink nearly as much coffee to stay awake..

Wendy H.

After years of recerts, I never thought I would see the day I would enjoy a CPR class.

Lisa W.

Dennis made me feel confident that I could perform these steps even in a stressful situation.

Sharon H.

Great….best instructor I've ever had.


Best, most knowledgeable, real life advice, explanations, and instruction I've ever received.

About All Pro CPR

All Pro CPR of Colorado, LLC was formed in 2008. After years of teaching courses for other companies, we decided that putting on courses ourselves would be the best way to ensure we, the instructors, were in full control of the quality of courses we are teaching.

Sponsoring the courses ourselves, instead of working for others, has enabled us to limit class sizes, ensuring a high quality, enjoyable experience for every student. We are also now better able to cater our courses to each individual’s or groups’ needs, providing a more relevant education for all of our students. For instance, All Pro is able to offer Spanish speaking courses, a need that we feel other companies have not successfully addressed.

All Pro’s owners and instructors are all currently in, or have years of experience in, the health care profession. When you choose us, you know you will get an instructor who has used all of these life saving skills in his or her everyday job, ensuring that you’re learning how it really goes, not just how a book tells you it should go.

Our Firefighter, EMT, Paramedic and/or Registered Nurse instructors will teach you CPR and First Aid in a hands on manner, including you in your learning experience in such a way that you can become comfortable with performing these potentially life saving skills.

All Pro CPR offers CPR for the Community, or for Healthcare Providers; Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training, First Aid, and Bloodborne Pathogen courses. All Pro also offers ACLS classes with certification through the American Heart Association. All courses except ACLS offered in Spanish as well.
