Colorado Cardiac CPR provides certification and recertification in BLS (Basic Life Support), First Aid, Heartsaver CPR/AED, ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support), PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support), CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) use.
Since Colorado Cardiac was founded by Tim Snyder in 2013 we have served the Littleton area, the city of Denver and its 9 surrounding counties as a designated American Heart Association (AHA) training site certifying over 5,000 people in different disciplines at one of our 3 different locations as well as on-site training.
At Colorado Cardiac CPR we strive to build a strong and medically educated community. Cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the United States with approximately 326,000 arrests per year (75% to 80% of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen at home) with a survival rate of about 10%. Nearly 1 in 3 victims survives when the arrest is witness by a trained bystander. Early recognition and delivery of high quality CPR is a vital and possible life saving intervention for victims. Although high quality bystander CPR can more than double a patient’s chance of survival; in most communities, a very small percentage of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients receive this vital care before the arrival of Emergency Medical Services.
To build awareness and optimize community involvement, we offer training and education programs, both on and off-site, for groups of medical professionals, hospitals, schools, churches, businesses, nonprofits and the public in general. We have many different classes to choose from and will happily tailor a class for you specifically depending on what your needs may be.
At Colorado Cardiac we staunchly believe that the more people that are educated, the more lives that can be saved!
Meet Our Friendly Staff:
Patrick "Big Trout Patty" Moe
In addition to possibly being your BLS or First Aid instructor, I am a general outdoor enthusiast and excitement hound. I spent a lot of years rock climbing -- across 7 states and 2 countries! I work for 5 months a year as a fly fishing guide at a remote lodge in Alaska and in the off season I hang around the Denver EMS world, I am a state and nationally registered EMT as well as an AHA endorsed BLS, First Aid, and Heartsaver instructor. I love teaching and I really enjoy all of the cool people I get to meet doing it. Especially in the medical profession as I find we are, all of us peas from a little bit different of a pod.
Well hey! My name is Sean and I'm one of the instructors here. I love teaching CPR part time on top of my night job as an EMT at a local ambulance company. When I'm not teaching CPR or on shift, you'll usually find me outdoors. In the summer, I enjoy long walks up a 14er, sunrise morning fly fishing on a river, and cycling with my family. In the winter time, I chill out a little bit, but still try and get outside to go snowshoeing or hunting.

I love being in the medical industry! As well as being a CPR instructor I am also a Wilderness First Responder and finishing my EMT. I enjoy teaching and sharing my passion for learning with everyone. When I'm not teaching I enjoy backpacking, camping or doing yoga pretty much anything that will keep me outdoors. I also hate wearing shoes, so don't be surprised if you meet me and I am barefoot
I’ve been teaching AHA courses for over 9 years and as a nurse my experience has been working in critical care. My goal as an instructor is to have students leave a class with more knowledge, confidence AND to hear them say they actually enjoyed it! Life is too short to not make things enjoyable. Besides teaching, the things I enjoy are the Colorado trifecta of hiking, biking and skiing with family and friends. Hope we meet soon!
My passion for the great outdoors keeps me busy biking mountain passes and trails, skiing fresh powder and hiking in the backcountry. I am a teacher in the metro area's public schools and support students with learning disabilities. As an EMT, I enjoy working the medical tent at festivals and races, leading backpacking trips with students and teaching for Colorado Cardiac!
I've been teaching CPR, First Aid, and Medical Emergency classes since 2010. For five years I worked for the American Academy of Pediatrics implementing dental screenings and varnish treatments at well-child checkups. Nothing is more rewarding than when a past student reaches out to me with a story about how they were able to help someone who was injured or even save a life. When I'm not teaching life-saving skills I'm either outdoors hiking or camping, reading, cooking, playing guitar, or painting. I'm also really interested in nutrition and having a healthy, active lifestyle. I look forward to meeting you and teaching your class!
