Postpartum Care, ACLS, NRP

I have taken three classes here and plan on taking more (already signed up for another class this week). They are very friendly and the classes truly are stress-free. I took an ACLS course somewhere else a couple of years ago and it was unnecessarily intense. I will definitely keep coming back here!

It is always such a pleasure taking class with this organization. Everything from the signup process to the checking out at the end of the day was enjoyable and stress free. I will most certainly be back!

Advanced fetal monitoring

When I first heard I would be driving to California to take this class I was thinking, "why me"? After a great drive and seeing new areas, I was so happy to meet a very friendly group of people who made the learning experience fun and informative. Thanks again.

Advanced FHT monitoring . Stress free , second time attending that class with you.

Great experience

I took the STABLE Program Certification course at the end of my nursing program. I found the class easy to understand, and the instructor was really helpful and approachable to questions. Overall, I felt this course did a good job of providing essential information that ties in to what is learned through NRP as well. Again, it was a great experience and I can't wait to take additional courses through NEO.
