eCPR is a life changing course.
e-CPR is a life changing course. It came into my life at a time when I was really struggling as a parent with my child who has a mental illness.
I didn’t know where to turn. Within the first 10 minutes of this course, I knew I landed here for a reason. The lack of judgement, the authenticity of this training instantly grounded me and I began to breathe again. In 12 hours, the sharing and learning that occurs in indescribable. Strangers coming together as nothing more than human beings, delving into the deepest parts of our souls.
This course teaches more than I have ever learned in all my trainings over the years. This training has changed the way I function in both my professional and personal life. It has changed me.
