American flag waving


Training4Responders was established in 2006.  Originally, the founder, Willy Giddings, was employed by St. Charles Medical Center as the American Heart Association Training Center Coordinator.  It was his responsibility to keep employees up to date in regards to training hours and certifications.  Budget issues forced the administration to discontinue outreach training to rural hospitals, Fire Departments and clinics.  As a result, an opportunity arose to begin training hospital employees as a private company.


Our company name – Training4Responders – clearly describes our primary mission and passion.  Since the inception of the company, we have expanded our clientele from primarily hospital employees to include a large variety of pre-hospital service individuals.  Training4Responders provides an array of training and education courses to help small businesses and individuals gain the knowledge to stay current with certifications and to meet state requirements.

We have enjoyed the path this company has taken thus far, and are excited for our future growth. Training4Responders is a leader in the training and education industry, serving a wide variety of customers, from the Oregon Secretary of State’s office to training Salem-Keizer School District 8th graders how to perform Hands only CPR and AED use in hopes of strengthening the community’s ability to help each other when faced with cardiac related events.  Training4Responders regularly provides education to RNs, PTs, PAs, EMTs, CNAs, fire departments, government agencies, Oregon Department of Transportation, public works, dental offices and more.

The demand to stay up to date with annual certifications can be challenging. With this understanding, we strive to provide efficient, effective and timely courses for individuals and company-wide groups.  In an effort to simplify scheduling for our customers, Training4Responders does not have set dates and times for our courses.  We schedule our training sessions by request, whether it be for one individual or a multiple attendee course.
