What Our Providers Say About Us

The Article 9 training was excellent. The instructor answered all questions, was informative, and made it fun as well. There was a wealth of information that was covered in the three hour course. Location was good and easy to find.


I have done all my trainings with APT. The classes are fun and I learn so much. So much better than other companies I've used in the past.

Paul Edwards

This was my first class but the instructor was fun and very knowledgeable on the subject. I feel so much more informed how to do my job.

Robin W.

Better application and specific information than I have ever had. The instructor was amazing- and kept people engaged. Best CPR and First Aid class I have ever taken. Thank you, Jason. You are a great instructor!


The content and presentation was useful, practical, and up-to-date. SUPERIOR training! I learned so much. Congrats on a job well done.


I attended Article 9 training in Show Low. The trainer was Michelle Hale. She was absolutely awesome! That was THE BEST Arion/DDD/DES training I've had in many years! She clearly explained and answered all my questions. Since I provide care for my grandson, I felt that many of the rules did not really apply but the way Michelle explained them, I have changed my mind...not only how they may pertain to my grandson but in helping to understanding other DDD members and providers as well. Thank you so much!


I was extremely satisfied with the trainer, Annette, and the class as an overall. Very informative.


The class was great our instructor was wonderful she explained in a way that we all understand and give us great examples. I had a great experience


Amanda did an amazing job at making this training appropriate to providers we support. I have taken many trainings and I am very impressed.


My training was interactive, informative, and interesting due to the trainer’s approach.


Recently, my wife and I took Prevention and Support. The instructor was amazing and we really learned a lot. We love taking classes through APT and we are looking forward to taking more!


I have taken many CPR classes and Duane is the best CPR instructor I have even had. He made the class interesting with his presentation & stories. He kept me focused on the material & made me feel confident about using life saving skills to help someone. Thank you Duane and APT for such great classes!


I took an article 9 course on Sunday 9/30 at the central phoenix location. The class and instructor were both great! I have enjoyed getting all my certifications with APT. After moving here from Ohio and having to obtain new and different certifications and also renew older ones, APT made it all such an easy process and really took the stress out of it for me. I will absolutely be a returning customer with any certifications I need in the future! Thanks APT!
