The Instructor:

Curt Newport is a veteran Hospitality Professional and Corporate Trainer, as well as currently certifying hundreds of people per year in (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) CPR.

Since 1998, Curt has been involved in Fire and Rescue as a volunteer, and has trained as both a Firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician. Curt currently serves as Rescue Chief at his department, and is an active First Responder.

Curt founded Newport Enterprises in 2007 as a blend of his two passions, Training and EMS. After several years as an “in house” CPR instructor, and numerous requests from the community, the company was launched as an effort to bring quality, professional instruction outside of their traditional locations in Hospitals and Libraries, and provided by instructors who are “out there every day” as responders, themselves.
