Tracey V. of Hollywood, MD -

Best training I ever had - really helped me feel comfortable and confident practicing the skills, took her time with me and never rushed. Price was extremely reasonable for having someone come teach me at home. Well worth every penny!

Anji G. of Chesapeake Beach, MD

Thank you so much for today, Lori! I feel more confident and competent in the event of an emergency.

Cheryl H. of Huntingtown, MD - 

The training was very well suited for either the beginner or the renewal person. Very informative, she had the answers for everyone that day. Real life stories, compassion, and open dialog.

Sherry L. of Prince Frederick , MD - 

Lori, you teach the best CPR Renewal Class I've ever been to & I've been taking them for some 40 years! Thanks for being so awesome!

Alyssa C. of California, MD -  

I took BLS training today with Lori, she is a very knowledgeable instructor who encourages you to try until you are comfortable and she explains things in an easy way for you to understand. It was great learning from her. Thank you Priority One CPR & First Aid Training.

Alisha H. of California, MD - 

Lori was extremely professional. The class was very effective. I really liked that I could learn at my own pace and she came to my home. I had an issue with scheduling due to childcare and she promptly adjusted her schedule. I highly recommend using her company.

Laquenda P. of Leonardtown, MD - 

This was a great CPR class experience. This was my 1st time having an Instructor come out to me. Very professional; very knowledgeable. I will be taking this class again when it is time for my Recertification.

Christy L. of Prince Frederick, MD - 

Lori was incredible. I was in a time crunch and Lori offered to meet me within a week!! I loved the blended course option and the one-on-one skills session was great! I really walked away feeling well-prepared! 

Julia J. of Lusby, MD - 

I took the blended learning option offered by Priority One. At first I was nervous about how I was going to like this style of class. I can honestly say this CPR class was hands down the best class I have taken. I have taken CPR through different companies in class room settings before. The one on one setting helped me better understand CPR. The instructor, Lori, was very helpful and knowledgeable. Her real life experiences really helped me grasp the information and skills. She is also very friendly and helps you feel less nervous. I was also very comfortable asking her all of the questions I had. I felt more comfortable with my skills after this class. I will definitely be recommending people to take CPR through this company. I also plan to take CPR with Priority One again. 

Felicia S. of Washington D.C. -

I needed to arrange CPR/AED Training for my Employer and was recommended Lori. She was incredibly flexible with dates, pricing was fair, and the class itself was amazing. She is so warm and friendly and made a potentially stressful and anxiety-inducing situation so comfortable for everyone. She was candid with us about her experiences and really gave us everything we would need to know if an emergency situation presented itself. I feel so prepared and I know my coworkers do too. I cannot recommend her highly enough! We loved her.

Kim B. of Lusby, MD - 

Priority One was very convenient. My instructor, Lori, was professional and extremely knowledgeable. I wish I had found this company years ago. I will definitely use them from now on. I highly recommend Priority One! 

Stephanie A. of California, MD - 

I took the CPR/AED Certification Renewal Course with Lori, and I can honestly say it was hands down the best and most helpful experience I have ever had with any CPR Class. Lori was very friendly and knowledgeable and explained things in a very easy to understand way. She was very organized, and she also made the class fun and enjoyable. I feel much more confident with my CPR/AED abilities than I ever have before. Before talking to Lori, I was a little worried about how my dog would behave with her instructing me in the home and him being locked in another room. He doesn’t like that! Lori assured me she loved and had worked with animals, and that my dog would be welcome to attend the class. This made my life so much easier, and Lori was great with him. I will 100% be using Lori for all future renewals.


Jason L. of Hollywood, MD - 

Lori is an excellent Instructor.  I've been renewing my CPR Training for over a decade and she is one of the most knowledgeable and thorough Instructors I've had.  She's very personable and makes sure you're comfortable with the information and techniques.  She makes it convenient by coming to your home and charges a more than fair price.  Overall, I can't recommend her enough for CPR/AED Certification.

Deshawna S. of Lusby, MD - 

Wow! Great course; loved the one-on-one. Very convenient for my busy schedule.

Susie D. of St. Leonard, MD - 

I took my re-certification for CPR/First Aid yesterday with Lori Stillwell Roper of Priority One CPR & First Aid Training, LLC. Here. At my day care! She comes to YOU! It was so great to catch up with a former child care provider AND complete my training! She is thorough and knows her stuff! I learned so much from her. I had no idea things/skills had changed! I feel confident and prepared to help save a child or adult! If you are in need of certification (she does all types) shoot her a message!

Rachel Q. of Mechanicsville, MD - 

Priority One CPR was incredible! I have never gotten so much out of a CPR class. Lori, the Instructor, comes to your home or where you want to meet and can teach you one-on-one. It is great because she gives you the basic knowledge, plus many of her tips from her personal experiences. Lori really takes the time for you to understand and master the concepts and skills with your certification. She is also very nice and easy going, so there is no reason to be nervous around her; she really just wants to make sure you are getting what you need from the class! I would recommend 100 times over!

Sara A. of Lexington Park, MD - 

Fantastic class! I feel very confident using what I learned.

Lindsay B. of Lusby, MD - 

Highly recommend! One-on-one, not your typical, awkward, big CPR class. Lori is very friendly and provides hands on; one-on-one; in-home training! You schedule with her, a time good for you! Loved it! Five stars; no question!

Shannon W. of Charlotte Hall, MD - 

I needed a CPR Certification for a Nursing Program I’m starting in the Fall. I was recommended to Lori at Priority One, by multiple people. And let me tell you, she is so worth it!!! She’s very thorough and makes sure you really walk away feeling like you learned something. She was also very personable, which makes it great to loosen up and have a positive atmosphere for learning! Will def recommend her to everyone, especially my fellow Nursing Students looking to Renew or obtain their CPR.

Candice C. of Waldorf, MD - 

I thoroughly enjoyed my CPR/AED Course provided by Priority One CPR & First Aid Training, LLC. The course was so informative and I learned so much.  I feel much more confident in being able to know what to do if a situation were to occur.  The hands on training brought everything learned together.  Lori is pleasant and she worked with me when I had to stop to care for my daughter.  If you are considering taking courses, I would recommend Priority One CPR & First Aid Training, LLC for sure!

Elizabeth W. of Lexington Park, MD - 

Lori was great! Professional, thoughtful and so informative. I learned things in her class that had never been covered before. Thank you so much for working with my schedule. Will be calling her in 2 years for my Renewal.

Cristina S. of Mechanicsville, MD  - 

She was amazing!!!! Taught me things I should have already known, that were left out in other classes from the past. I will definitely be using her in the future!!!!

Caitlin W. of Leonardtown, MD -  

Learning how to do CPR with Priority One CPR was so informative and empowering. If you have any questions during the instruction, don't be afraid to ask! Lori is super kind and knowledgeable. I feel confident that I will be able to help someone in need after my class. She is very flexible too; she can meet and train you anywhere!

Heather G. of St. Leonard, MD - 

Lori was absolutely the best. She worked around our schedule and she talked on the phone to me for a long time to address any questions. I love how she comes to you, this made it so convenient. She answered all of our questions and was beyond thorough. A huge plus is the fact that she had patience with my dog that kept getting in the way! I will definitely use her to renew and for the kids when they are ready to become certified. She wants to make sure you are confident with the skills she is teaching and she offers different learning types, if it’s needed. After many CPR classes through work, Lori was the best instructor I have encountered. Thanks Lori!

Maryann C. of Avenue, MD - 

Not only do they come to you, but this was one of the most informative classes I’ve taken. I would recommend Lori to anyone!

Brenda L. of Charlotte Hall, MD - 

I love that Lori comes to your house to teach her classes. Nice to have the one-on-one. Highly recommend her and will definitely use her in the future.

Kirsi C. of Lexington Park, MD -

I am so thankful I stumbled upon Priority One and Lori in my search for a hands-on lesson in CPR/AED. I’m studying to become a personal trainer and needed to be certified... before reading too closely into requirements, I signed up and completed an online CPR/AED program. I went on only to realize I not only needed a hands-on session to become a PT but that I wasn’t anywhere near comfortable with actually performing the procedures. Lori was so pleasant to work with! She’s very well educated, took her time to make sure I was comfortable with all the hands-on portions and most importantly is extremely passionate about educating the community in lifesaving practices. We had a one-on-one session at my home and it took a little over two hours. Thanks to Lori I now feel like I would be HELPFUL in an emergency situation and not a bystander. Thank you!!

Leah K. of Mechanicsville, MD - 

Priority One does a wonderful job at ensuring that you feel confident with CPR/AED and have a full understanding of how to properly perform CPR if you ever need to. Lori is also very accommodating and will travel to you, which is a big help. Overall, it was a great experience.

Brittney R. of Mechanicsville, MD - 

Best CPR/First Aid Class I have ever taken!  Very easy going.  She did a great job allowing me to learn at my own speed and making sure I was comfortable if ever in these situations.  She came to me and was very understanding to my 3 year old son who wanted to learn as well.  I would recommend Lori to everyone looking for CPR and First Aid.

Kathy S. of Lexington Park, MD - 

Lori is a very knowledgeable and thorough instructor.  She is friendly, easy to talk with, and was very patient with my little ones (who obviously wanted to join in on the training lol).  I will be utilizing her services again!

Sarah F. of California, MD -

Lori is a wonderful instructor.  Took time to answer questions and discuss real life experience and what to expect.  Very professional and personable.  Would highly recommend.  Thank you for getting St. Andrew's Preschool ready for another two years.

Amanda B. of Lexington Park, MD - 

Lori is an amazing instructor!  She doesn't rush through anything - she makes sure you understand.  It is very evident that Lori has a passion for helping and training others.  She also came to me so that it fit my crazy schedule.  Her instructing is easy to follow - clear and concise.  I will certainly be renewing with her!

Jennifer L. of California, MD -

Lori Roper is an amazing instructor! She is thorough, detail oriented, and a trained Paramedic.  I worked with her for 5 years at MedStar St. Mary's Hospital where she taught hundreds of courses and mentored many instructors.  She truly cares about people and wants to help others save and protect lives!  And no she didn't pay me to say this!

Nancy S. of Huntingtown, MD -
