About American CPR Center
American CPR Center is family-owned and operated right here in Albuquerque, NM. Since my father opened the company in 1993 we’ve been dedicated to teaching emergency medicine to the public and business through out New Mexico. Emergency medicine runs through our veins. My grandmother was an ER nurse. My father was a paramedic. I, myself am a paramedic in Albuquerque's 911 system. Here at American CPR center, we don't just teach CPR. We live it. 
John began his teaching experience in 1993 as an American Heart Association BLS Instructor. In 1995 he became Top ICES Instructor at UNMVC. In 2001 he was promoted to American Heart Association Training Center Faculty where he remains today. 
Vince is not far behind his father. He began teaching BLS in 2006. In 2007, Vince graduated from paramedic school and began working in Albuquerque's 911 system. In 2012, Vince graduated from UNM with a B.S. in Emergency Medicine. He continues to work as a paramedic for the 911 system.
