CardioSavers, LLC was founded by Patrick Lee in 1994. Our goal is to provide each student a non-stressful, fun and easy way of learning, along with a clear understanding of CPR, the use of an AED, and other First Aid and Bloodborne pathogens skills with life like situations. We teach each student how to adapt their skills for all types of emergencies, whether workplace related, in public, or at home.
Patrick has a lengthy emergency medical background as a Guilford County Paramedic, 911 Emergency Medical Dispatcher, worked at the Surgical and Orthopedic Center of Greensboro, and with Moses Cone Health Systems in the Emergency Room and CareLink Mobile Critical Care.
CardioSavers certifies each student through the American Heart Association and upon completion of each course the student is certified for 2 years. Each course will provide the student or company with a receipt from CardioSavers on company letterhead. Then the AHA will mail each student a wallet size certificate.
CardioSavers’s mission is to teach the AHA courses in a fun and easy to learn setting. We will teach you what to do in an emergency situation while in the comfort of a non-stressful teaching environment.
