Foster families: Please click the links in the tool bar on your left for your region classes. You will find a list of all classes held in your area and instructions on how to sign up for the classes.

 CLASS UPDATE July 1 2020:  We have a tough announcement for our foster caregivers. As of midnight June 30, 2020 we are unable to offer you free CPR/BBP/First Aid Training. We hope that this is a temporary situation however we do not know if it will be. As many of you know, there are several programs that work with the state DCYF and Alliance on contract that expired besides our contract.


We are in a bit of shock and unknown waters with all of it. But once our cities open up to larger group gatherings we plan on booking classes for you. The only difference will be that you will need to pre-pay for your class when you call (or email) to register with us. We are so sorry it has to be this way but we have no choice. You will have the same instructors you have enjoyed over the last 14 years and the same level of class; you will have your card that covers everything that is required for you to help the children. On another sad note, we will have no funding for interpreter services as all. We can offer the booklet in Spanish and English at this time but that is the only service we can offer currently. You are welcome to bring your own interpreter if you would like.


Once we have classes booked and you register and pay, if you cannot attend the class your fee will carry over to another date that you can attend. Due to the high cost of hosting classes we can’t issue refunds but we are happy to move you to another course date without any additional fees.


We are devastated that this change had to come and we hope to one day be able to offer the classes for free again. Please check back often on classes and how to register. Once we can book spaces we will post the classes. We may be limited in area for awhile as well but will grow and the needs grow.


Thank you everyone for what you do for the youth in need in our state. It has been amazing to work with and know so many of you over all these years.

Attention: Important Notice

Attention: Important Notice

1) It has come to our attention that a person by the name of Scott Peabody appeares to be using  material that is very outdated (as much as 18+ years old) and using cards that he has made appear similar  to our company cards  as well as stating he is Keep the Beat CPR & First Aid Training. This person, his staff and family is in no way associated with this company and never have been. This company is owned by Tamara E Fairley and has been since 1991. Ms. Fairley has never given this person permission to use the name or materials of this company. Several reports have been made that the cards and books he issues appear almost identical to those developed and used solely by this company. This persons’ teaching credentials; if any, are unknown to this company. This person is NOT authorized to use any of our organizations material or authorized to teach any of our clients. This person is located in Southwest WA state. If approached by anyone saying they are a representative of this company in order to solicit your business, please confirm with the owner, Tamara Fairley.  Any cards issued by someone other then our approved instructors will not be honored or valid. We strive to use only top quality instructors who have been monitored and proven their teaching skills……when in doubt…..check it out. Thank you for your understanding.




2) Keep the Beat CPR & First Aid Training is NOT connected in any way shape or form to a new company based in Wauconda WA called "Keep the Beat LLC". They are a training company that is run by a Red Cross Instructor and are not a part of us. They began their company in April of 2019 in this state.  

How Keep the Beat CPR & First Aid Training started…


Tamara has been an instructor of Basic Life Support since 1991. She has taught for King County Emergency Medical Services through 1996. She established Keep the Beat in 1995. Tamara has worked in medical research since 1988 dealing with such topics as first responder early defibrillation, cardiac survival, physical rehab and adult day health care.  She has worked with many respected physicians and staff, including world known Dr. Eisenberg and Dr. Cummins during her time with King County EMS. Tamara credits these doctors with giving her the knowledge and passion for teaching that has committed her to excellence and superior training. Tamara has been fortunate to have two very special ladies and one man who, over the years, have mentored her. She holds both Chris McGrath, Barbara Welles and paramedic/instructor Ron Quincey in the highest regard. Thank you for mentoring and for showing Tamara what excellent, quality teaching is all about (and never allowing her to give up, no matter how much she tried)! Every since the first class Tamara taught she felt the need to continue and to strive to teach every citizen she met this life saving skill called CPR. In 2001 Tamara was able to make her dream come alive as a full time career. This is when she was able to stop working full time for others while teaching part-time. She opened her doors to full time teaching and hasn’t looked back since!

CPR & First Aid can mean life or death!


Do you know what to do when a loved one, co-worker, or friend needs help? What do you do if you see a car accident, a burn, a severe cut, shock?



CPR is a life saving skill that everyone should know. King County has the best reputation in the world. We are known as “The best place in the world to have a heart attack”. That’s because more citizens know what to do when the emergency arises.

Increasing the chance of survival means starting CPR right away.

Isn’t it time you and your staff learn these valuable skills?
