About Code One

Code One Training Solutions, LLC was established in 2007 when founder, Richard Shok, was an undergraduate in the University of Connecticut’s School of Nursing.  Rich recognized there was a need for CPR training in the university community – other classes were infrequent, distant, and of varying quality and content.  Code One was established to fill this void and its on-campus CPR classes were well-received and highly praised by administration and students alike.

Upon graduation, Rich realized a similar gap existed in the community.  Code One launched its first community training center in 2009 and has continued to grow since then.  Currently Code One operates ten permanent facilities and two mobile training vehicles in six states on the east coast.  Code One’s team of seven full time professional staff and 60 instructors are still led by Rich.  Instructors provide courses at Code One’s training centers and also travel to clients nationwide to teach lifesaving training for small businesses to Fortune 500 corporations.

As an American Heart Association (AHA) Training Center, Code One is authorized to instruct all training programs the AHA offers.  Code One is further responsible for overseeing close to 100 training sites and their affiliate instructors.  In 2018, Code One and its affiliate sites already trained over 17,000 people to provide lifesaving care.
