Testimonials

Our dental office has been CPR certified for decades. The re-certification we just took was our best course to date. The instruction was presented in an interesting format. Techniques were well demonstrated and easy for us to duplicate. The entire course went very efficiently and we will use Take Action again.

Very thorough and concise course. You will learn all of the basic first aid and cpr procedures. These are tools everyone should have! Extremely important for those who work dangerous jobs or have friends or relatives with health issues.

Working with Bob at Take Action CPR was great. He traveled to our facility, provided all of the equipment. After taking his class my staff and I feel confident about our emergency action plan and how to save a life. Thanks to him we also learned how to register our AED. Thanks again to Bob at Take Action CPR.

Bob McNellis came out to the Charter Fitness of Bridgeview to re-certify myself and my staff on CPR/AED. Bob was very informative and taught in such a way that I feel will stick with me and my staff. He was very knowledgeable and professional from beginning to end. What I really loved about the session was how patient Bob was for all of our questions and was really focused on making sure we fully grasped what was being taught to us, as well as made the session fun. Would recommend Bob to any of my fellow clubs and would absolutely have him back to certify any of my other staff.

Bob and his team were wonderful to work with. They did an excellent job keeping our employee's attention and getting everyone involved. I would recommend them to anyone looking for CPR/AED training and certification.

Bob McNellis trained our 15 person team prior to leading an international trip that required CPR training. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and social. He made the training entertaining for our group and everyone loved the course. After the course I felt better prepared for my trip. I highly recommend Bob for any group trainings. His class is hands on and he is very knowledgeable and engaging. Thank you again Bob for a great class! - Dylan (Kellogg School of Management)

Our instructor Bob McNellis conducted two CPR/AED classes at Costco Merrillville location. It was extremely professional and enthusiastic when conducting the class. He showed real world situations and all 34 people had hands on experience when it came to performing CPR and using the AED. I would highly recommend him. We are using him again in June to certify more employees that missed the last opportunity.

We use Take Action CPR for all of our CPR and basic first aid training here at Ivy League Before and After School Program. Bob is informative, engaging and really makes the class fun! I would highly recommend Take Action CPR!!!

Bob was an excellent trainer! His hands on, interactive approach brought the subject to life. I have no doubt that our team will now be able to handle the next emergency that comes our way.

I worked with Bob in order to certify 200 graduate students who were preparing to lead international trips for incoming students. We were able to certify all the leaders over the course of 11 CPR & First Aid sessions over 4 days (cap of 20 people per session).
Bob was flexible and collaborative when it came to scheduling such a big group, professional and punctual when it came to the actual sessions, and extremely accessible for the students. Bob went out of his way to understand the international trips these students would be leading, what types of situations might arise, and effectively focused in on these situations during the sessions. He was open to feedback to better tailor the topics covered based on need (if questions were asked in the first session, he would cover the answers in every subsequent session as well) and was easy to work with throughout the whole process. I definitely recommend him for this type of project.

Bob McNellis with Take Action CPR was a pleasure to work with as he taught our class to effectively respond to health emergencies that may arise at our church (Community United Methodist) in Naperville. We especially liked his presentation style which included starting with the basics and moving into more complex situations where CPR/AED may be indicated. At the end of the class we ran a demonstration of an "emergency" and learned more about how to work as a team for a successful outcome. Bob's experience as a paramedic was especially useful to help us to understand how to be ready when the rescue workers get to our location. The consensus of the group was that this was the most informative and practical CPR/AED training that we had had over the years. Thanks to Bob.

Bob came to Oak Park to train our staff at a childcare/preschool center and was fantastic. He was fun, informative and engaging. Bob was patient and took time to answer all questions. He left our staff feeling confident in our CPR abilities as well as provided a team building environment! I would highly recommend Bob for any CPR or first aid training!

Laura W.

Bob was great to work with! I own an early learning facility and there were 10 of us to train. He explained and demonstrated techniques and we also completed hands on training. He kept the class fun and interesting for us. He took the time to answer all questions and review scenarios that could arise working with children at our location. I have been working in this field for 20 years and by far this was the best training that I have been through. I would highly recommend using Bob for your training!

Stephanie C.

Bob came to our studio to provide CPR training for our instructors. Hands down the best CPR training I've ever had. Bob is so passionate and knowledgeable about what he does. His approach is great. We did a practice enactment with the defibrillator which was a really valuable experience. He obviously cares very deeply about preparing his students to act quickly and smartly as first responders. He taught us very valuable skills that we hope we never have to use, but left us feeling confident if we do.

Karen B.

Working with Bob was great for our team. He made the training interactive and engaging. It was not your typical "watch videos and answer questions" training which I've been a part of in the past. The information given was informative and relevant. I highly recommend working with Bob!

Francisco R.

Take Action CPR Training was fantastic! Our lead trainer Bob, and his trusty, fellow trainer, Kyle, did our certified training in just under 3 hours for a group of 15. They were fun, engaging, answered all of our questions and made the whole experience enjoyable. They were easy to book, responsive, and flexible. Book them, you will not be disappointed!

Erica F.

Action CPR was outstanding. Bob and Kyle worked with our entire staff and helped make us more prepared to respond to a life-threatening event. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This was a very interactive and informative training, and the cost of the training was perfect.

This class was a fantastic experience for our team! We were so happy to have Bob out for this CPR training. We highly recommend him!

Mirit G.

5 stars across the board. Bob and Kyle were fantastic. Everything we could have asked for. Would highly recommend to anyone who is interested. Could not be happier.

Jonathan B.

Working with Bob and Take Action CPR was truly a professional and educational experience. We hired him to give our hospitality managers a class on CPR and First Aid. Our managers found the class to be dynamic and informative. Some people who had taken a previous CPR class said that Bob was much more interactive. We all had a chance to try CPR on the equipment Bob brought. Overall, our team was very satisfied and grateful for the experience. Thank you Bob for a great class!

Elana K.

Quick response, very professional and we are setting up a date in the future for training for our corporation.

Lindsey M.

Bob & Kyle taught our group of 12 boating safety instructors. Their presentation was - as promised - FUN and very engaging. All the students reported to me that it was the best ever CPR class they'd taken. Many commented on the focus on teamwork, what to do in a life threatening emergency and the "all in" drill. Bob was great to work with in setting up the class - extremely responsive, accommodating and flexible. Their equipment was state of the art and they took the trouble to learn the type of AED we have so they could bring a similar demo model. Can't say enough good stuff about Take Action!

Maureen H.

We recently hosted two classes with Bob from Take Action CPR Training and we couldn't be happier with how things went. This class was shorter, more fun AND MORE USEFUL than what we've received from any other provider in the past. Learning from someone who regularly uses these skills in real life (instead of just teaching them in the classroom) makes all the difference in the world. As one of our returning participants said after the class "I'd rather learn how to help in a real emergency than learn how to properly treat a snakebite. I don't feel like any of my time was wasted." Bottom line: Hire Bob. You won't regret it.

Elena D.

Bob was amazing! We were in a total bind the night before we needed CPR training as our original trainer fell through. Bob made the class fun, engaging and worthwhile. He truly came to our rescue in more ways than one!

Amanda A.

We had the best training class today. Some of our employees have worked here for 20 years and stated that this was the best CPR training class they ever attended. The interaction was great between them all and I could tell from the laughing and clapping going on in the gym. We are so looking forward to our next training class next month!!
