Our CPR Training Story
EMC CPR & Safety Training, LLC is dedicated to improving the health and safety of all people, whether at home, work, or school. At EMC, we strive to be a complete resource for CPR and First Aid certification, AED sales, and AED program management & compliance.
How it all Started
The company was founded in July 2010 by Stephanie Duehring in New Jersey. While she had several years of experience as a CPR instructor, the task of building a company from the ground up was going to be a learning experience. She did not have a business background or mentorship to provide guidance. Using a spare bedroom as an office, Stephanie made cold calls in an attempt to acquire clients. All it took was one successful conversation to bring in the first customer, a childcare center a couple of hours away. With the first onsite CPR training a success, her drive to get more clients was amplified.
Stephanie built EMC’s customer base one by one. About a year and a half in business, she brought in our training contract with Success Academy Charter Schools (SACS) in NYC. The contract was renewed, and the relationship grew year to year. They continue to work with us over ten years later, which serves as a testament to the quality of our CPR training and the strength of our personalized customer service. We have been entrusted to certify hundreds of their teacher and operations staff so they are ready to jump into action during a cardiac emergency.
Our CPR Training Story Continues…
The company’s service territory grew from the NYC tri-state area to nationwide as the years went on. Guided by honesty, transparency, and respect, relationships with new clients continue to grow exponentially. As such, we have had the honor of providing our services to Armstrong Flooring, Marriott, Dollar Tree Distribution, Duke Energy, Hilton, HITN TV, John Deere, Mount Sinai Health System, New Zealand Trade & Enterprise, Radisson, and Roche Diagnostics. With demand for expanded services, we ventured into offering AED sales and Medical Direction/Oversight.
We continue to work with a wide array of new clients across the United States, from big to small. To provide the best service possible, we built and continue to expand our CPR instructor team and service technicians. Each new addition is screened to ensure that they align with our core values of honesty, kindness, and integrity. They must also share in the commitment to teaching others the critical life skills of CPR and First Aid with simplicity and compassion.
Whether we teach classes in New York City or train people in Oregon, the EMC team has experience working with people from all walks of life. Lessons are adapted to the needs of every customer, and products are offered to meet the specific needs of each facility and budget.
