While attending UCLA in the early 90’s, I worked part time for the City of Beverly Hills Fire Department’s CPR Training Center. After graduation, I opened up the private company which is now known as Jenn Tyler and Associates CPR Training.
In the 1990’s I chaired an American Heart Association Los Angeles’ CPR committee overseeing 27 hospital CPR programs, and over the years have trained over 40,000 students in CPR.
I love teaching CPR because I know it can truly make a difference in people’s lives by keeping the class fun, short, and engaging. I love seeing the “light” go on in students by the end of the class because they actually feel empowered and confident of their skills. It’s more than a job for me, it’s feeling I’ve truly benefitted my students and can make this world a better/safer place, one class and one student at a time.
While dancing hula and teaching somatics, yoga and giving massages on Kaua’i island, I met Jenn when he
joined my hula school. I needed to become certified to become a professional baby sitter and was trained by Jenn.
I really loved how engaging and enthusiastic he was when he taught the class and I was impressed with how quickly everyone absorbed the material while having a fun time.
We became friends and he offered me a position in his company traveling to Los Angeles and teaching child care providers months out of the year. Now I teach classes throughout the Hawai’ian islands from adventure companies, to state agencies, and health professionals.
I love teaching CPR and empowering people to assist someone in need. I love sharing wisdom and listening to client stories how CPR has made such a big difference in their lives as they were able to help a fellow community member.
After becoming a firefighter in 2005 and actually performing CPR on a daily basis and seeing the positive results, I became very interested in passing on these simple lifesaving skills to the public. Too often I have been on scene with a person who requires CPR and the family, friend or bystander who made the call either does not perform CPR, performs it inadequately or incorrectly due to fear or lack of training.
My goal has alway been to not only teach CPR, but to teach “real life” CPR. Having done CPR over 100 times in my career, often my classes not only include the skill sets needed but also other tips to properly prepare my students for the realities of doing CPR on a real person as well as the emotional preparation needed.
I run a very detailed but fun and casual class. I take pride in my students who tell me that after taking my classes, that they no longer fear the prospect of doing CPR but rather embrace the opportunity to save a life, if it should ever happen.
I began teaching CPR to a small group of citizens at the local ﬁre station in 2006 while working as a ﬁreman in Salinas, CA. Since then I have had the opportunity to teach life saving techniques to a wide range of learners.
I have the chance to teach boy scouts ﬁrst aide as a merit badge counselor as well as advanced life support to Doctors, Nurses, and Paramedics as an Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support Instructor.
I enjoy teaching CPR because knowledge and skill empowers people. I believe you will ﬁnd greater conﬁdence in yourself when you learn how to help those in need.

**JTA ANGEL OF LIFE AWARD** As lifeguard, Trish recently performed CPR on a 67 year old participant at a swim meet, and was credited by the Fire Department for brining the lady back. Love to you, Trish!
30 years experience teaching swim lessons, coaching and lifeguarding; with Jenn Tyler and Associates CPR for 5 years. Trish puts her heart into teaching CPR as she’s had to do it now several times and knows it works. Bless you Trish
I enjoy teaching especially the Lifesaving skills. I started teaching CPR/First Aid & AED 3-4yrs approximately. It has been rewarding, fun and I learn the most from the people that I teach. I gained new friends and most importantly, we learn a little bit more each time we meet again.
I have taught groups in the Hotel Industries, Health Care System, Medical Facilities, Eye Care Centers, Plumbing,
Dental, Bus Drivers, Cab Companies, Day Care, Construction, Energy Solutions, Tourist Attractions, Stores – COSTCO, Catering, Care Homes, and if I miss any, my bad. NAME IT – WE GOT IT.
A short, informative, fun, hands on and TO THE POINT session is my main focus. You will walk away feeling conﬁdent that you can do your best to help someone when the need arise with the information provided. See you in the next class. MAHALO!!!
After college I spent some time working as a stunt man in the movie industry, but never gave up teaching and my passion to help others.
Still working in the movie industry, I have been fortunate to be hired by Jenn Tyler and be given the chance to teach CPR on the West Coast. Being certified in CPR and First Aid for over 15 years, I find it a great pleasure to help people keep up to date on the latest and most efficient ways to help others.
Teaching CPR all comes down to that one day were you get an email or a phone call from a former student that tells you how they had to perform CPR on a friend, parent, child, or a stranger and they tell you of the incident and how they could of never done it without taking the class I was teaching. We instill the confidence and know how to save lives!
After 20 plus years as a lifeguard, I became an instructor and certifying ofﬁcial for lifeguard training. I always had a passion for teaching all the skills needed for someone to become a lifeguard.
Teaching CPR/FA is one part of the lifeguard training that I really enjoy. I believe that everyone in the world should know CPR/FA and how to perform CPR/FA correctly.
This will contribute to millions of lives save each year and create 283,000 new jobs just in the USA.

Kevin Mc Kenna
LA City’s Lifeguard Rookie School trainer. What’s more, I personally wrote the, Lifeguard Operational Manual, for the City of Los Angeles’ Aquatic Department.
Later, I served as a faculty instructor for LAUSD, then ran the enrichment program, at a middle school. Next, I served as Program Director Jewish Community Center, where I ran, and also taught classes.
Also, I help found the ‘Burbank Boys and Girls Club’, and served on the Board of Directors for six years.
Today, I’m semi-retired, but still keep busy, raising my almost grown kids, finishing a novel and teaching CPR classes. My first love really is teaching CPR.
Why? Because it saves lives! I got a phone call one time from a school teacher who had taken my class. She called to tell me that a child in her class was choking on a grape. She saved that child’s life she said because of the training I had given her. You’ll never know how good that made my feel.
I now have four children myself. After more than forty years of teaching everything from acting to journalism. I’ve learned a little lesson: CPR is by far the most important thing to know.
Hope to see you soon…
