Our History

Twenty-Eight Years and Growing

FACT began as an idea to simplify first aid & CPR training in 1986. The initial FACT first aid and CPR course developed by local healthcare professionals took over two (2) years to develop. These professional determined that we were teaching materials in current first aid classes that were not even used in advanced life support ambulances but classes were wasting students time in class learning these materials. The goal, simplify the program so that students learned by understanding, NOT by memorization. Well, it worked. Participants loved the course and word spread. Next we were asked to apply the same philosophy other aspects of safety such as job site safety, motorcycle training and driver education. Now twenty-eight years later we are still striving to provide the same dedication to education and customer service that got us here today. Please take a look at the miles stones of our company below as we are proud of where we have come from and where we are going.
