About Us



THE ACADEMY OF EMERGENCY ARTS was created for two purposes:

  • First, because I wanted to provide medical professionals, learn better in either one-on-one or in small a group setting, to have a better option. That is because I believe the more comfortable a student is the easier it is for him/her to learn.
  • Secondly, I wanted to satisfy my love of teaching.

Experience and Professionalism


  •  All of our teachers are certified American Heart Association instructors. 
  • All have real life experience with patient care and CPR.
  • Finally, all believe in a low stress teaching and testing environment.
