"I would like to personally thank Bev Hartzburg for the training I received while attending a First Responder Refresher Course at Ridgewater College. While at the course, Bev and her staff taught me more than I received at my initial First Responder class. Bev was extremely helpful and the reason she is such a successful teacher is her experience. I left the class finally feeling like I could confidently approach a medical scene and save someone's life. Little did I know that 6 months later I would be called to an accident scene just outside the town I police in.... As I look back, everything I did was spur of the moment and I was in "the zone." I don't think I would have had that confidence without Bev's teaching."

"I had never had an actual Code Blue and this simulation helped a lot. I feel more confident now that I have seen and participated in this mobile Simulation."
