Coyne Program

The Coyne Basic Life Support / First Aid Training Course provides the means with which to teach lifesaving skills in-house without having to rely on others outside of your organization to do so.  Your scheduling problems are eliminated, courses are conducted at your convenience and all of this is accomplished with a saving of time and money.


The relationship between high quality CPR and survival from cardiac arrest has long been established. The common theme in the communities saving the most lives from Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest is high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation.  Instructor-led retraining for life-threatening emergencies should occur at least annually.

Cards don’t save lives, skills do.  This is why we elect to require an annual refresher of the CPR skills. We regard a 2-year requirement as a fundamental flaw in that for the second year the vital skills are diminished and survival is compromised.

The Coyne Program requires less training hours than those with 2 year cards in that our CPR Refresher takes approximately 2 hours and we provide 2-year cards for Basic First Aid. 

How It Works

Our Master Instructor teaches selected personnel to become Instructor Trainers.  This requires a comprehensive two-day seminar which is conducted at our Training Center, or can be conducted at a location of your choosing.

Step 2:
