As a firefighter and paramedic, I see first-hand the tremendous need for quality emergency response training for everyone, including members of the public, medical professionals, first responders and anyone who needs CPR or First Aid certification, including members of the public who want to be ready to make a difference.
I started APHE Illinois LLC (APHE), in 2007 in Delafield, WI, where we are still based. Over 16 years, over 1,000 instructors and over 150,000 students later, we are an authorized AHA Training Center (TC). We provide training primarily in Illinois and the Midwest but instructors from over 30 states teach classes through our organization.
We believe that learning is a continuous process that should never end. Our mission is to provide high-quality, informative and interesting courses that are accessible to everyone, regardless of their background or experience. We offer a wide range of classes designed to help you acquire new skills, advance your career, and achieve your personal goals.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about who we are and what we do!
Adam Fritsch, NRP, CCP
President & Training Center Coordinator
We are a family-owned business providing CPR, First Aid, BLS, ACLS, PALS and other training programs in several US states. Our full time team oversees the Training Center from our headquarters in Wisconsin. Hundreds of instructors are aligned or affiliated with APHE and teach American Heart Association, American Red Cross, and National Association of Emergency Medical Technician classes through our organization.
Members of our team have the opportunity to teach people life saving knowledge and skills that can truly make a difference in a victim’s chance of survival. We invest in our communities by educating the people who provide medical care where we live, work, and teach. Our mission is to provide all students in all courses with high-quality, engaging, informative, science-based medical training. We prioritize our relationships with our team and clients. Our friendly, knowledgeable and professional instructors provide an exceptional learning environment for all students.
We are evolving at an incredible pace. We are constantly reimagining how we deliver our classes to our clients so that no matter how our clients want to learn–in-person, virtually or blended–we deliver the training conveniently, effectively and with immediate results so they can use their knowledge and skills the instant that they are needed.
We are on the front lines of teaching resuscitation to healthcare workers and non-healthcare students, with the potential to positively impact thousands of students and fellow team members.
