Josh Sauberman CPR

Josh Sauberman started out teaching CPR for the Moraga Orinda Fire Department in 2013. At the time he was working as a Firefighter/EMT with the Cordelia Fire Protection District. The interest in becoming a CPR instructor was inspired by wanting to help empower people to make life saving differences in those critical minutes before 911 responders arrive at the scene of an emergency. Josh opened CPR Education in October 2013 and has been providing CPR certification classes to businesses, indivudals and groups ever since, and since 2018 has been building a great team of instructors who work with him in this continued goal.

CPR training is a unique and rewarding business to be in because it provides an opportunity to meet people from every walk of life and learn about businesses of many varying industries, all within the context of helping them to make their workspaces safer, more prepared enviornments.

As an entreprenuer, Josh loves meeting other business owners and seeing so many varied workspaces. Visiting and providing CPR training to so many Bay Area businesses has been a real pleasure and a provided Josh a fascinating perspective into the worlds of so many Bay Area professionals.

On a similar note, providing in-home CPR classes is also one of Josh’s favorite activities. Private CPR classes are a wonderful way to deliver this invaluable service to people in their most comfortable setting. Josh says “the great thing about private individuals hiring you to teach them CPR is that you know their motivation is intrinsic. Rather than taking a class to satisfy work requirements, they’re doing it because for one reason or another, they genuinely want to to learn CPR.”

My Philosophy

Josh Sauberman CPR Instruction

I believe people learn that people do their best learning when they’re comfortable and having fun, and that’s my aim in every class. Not only do I want my students to have fun, but I want to enjoy teaching them. Humor alos helps lighten a potentially dark subject into something lite and enjoyable. My goal is to make my students want the class go over time. While I do adhere to planned time frames, I love getting to know my clients, what motivates them and why they’re doing the class.

I go a bit overboard on the jokes and I’m a bit silly, but I always have fun and I’ve found it really helps to engage and dare I say, entertain my students. Most of all, that engagement and enjoyment is what promotes the best educational enviornemnt.

"Josh is amazing. I am so glad I worked with him to get my training. I needed some special accommodations, and Josh was incredibly kind, flexible and helpful. No other training center I called was even willing to discuss my needs with me. In contrast, when I first called, Josh was immediately engaged and interested in making things work for me. What a relief. Every step of the way, he solved problems. Plus, he's just really easy to talk with."

"Josh was a fantastic CPR teacher, and I recommend him highly! He customized the class perfectly to meet the needs of our dental office staff. He kept the class interesting, engaging and fun, while also making sure we learned the fundamentals well. He is highly knowledgeable and experienced. We will definitely contact Josh in the future for our CPR training needs."

"I truly can not say enough good things about Josh. We have had terrible luck hiring quality contractors, accountants and other service providers by looking through google reviews or yelp but this one is not that. Josh is so knowledgeable, friendly and helpful for SUCH a reasonable price. He comes directly to your home and provides the class. His CPR class is PERFECT..."

Josh will tell you, the trick to winning the most improved firefighter is simply to start out terrible.  Nonetheless, it was a privilege to receive this award which was voted on by his peers and colleagues, and it seems fitting as Josh’s personal philosophy is that no matter who you, or how good you may be, there is always room for improvement, and striving to be better, is something everyone should be doing, everyday.
