Oceanside (College Plaza)

Express Training Solutions Oceanside is our second location in Southern California and is located just north of San Diego. This particular location is slightly smaller than our San Diego site, but still offers four different healthcare training classes with several instructors on-site, and classes are held six days a week to accommodate students’ busy schedules.

Courses offered are both instructor-led and online hybrid options. More popular courses, such as Basic Life Support (BLS), are held daily. Students can register easily online, receive instant access to their educational materials, and begin preparing for the first available class in Oceanside immediately after registering.

This place is awesome, they have several locations and multiple class days available thoughtout the week! They won't cancel on you if you're the only student that has signed up for the class either which is amazing! I had Ahmed as my instructor for both ACLS and PALS and he relayed all of the information needed to pass the class, all while making it entertaining!! Make sure to check out their website for the student and many other discounts they have available!! Thanks Ahmed!!

Daryl was an amazing instructor mixing humor and basic life support info to move the class along in no time. I've been a LVN for 11 years and this is one of the most informative classes I've attended. Kudos to Daryl for making previously learned information fun and fresh. I'd highly recommend this instructor to anyone as he's able to answer questions for the newer student and keep it interesting for the repeat visitor. Thank you for helping us save lives-Eric(Have fun at comic con Daryl)

This company is outstanding, I have gone through their recertification classes for years now. They are quick and efficient, they keep their class size low due to covid-19 regulations, but I definitely recommend for any healthcare provider to recert with them. Thank you Ahmed for your instruction during each of my classes!

Went in for my BLS certification for my new job and had a blast with Daryl. His personality makes the classroom environment so much fun. I recommend this location and his class if you’re looking to get certified. FYI, I drove from Temecula to Oceanside to take this class. The drive was well worth it.
