About Greater Boston Safety Training

Greater Boston Safety Training offers in-person and virtual classes designed to help students master the skills needed to save lives in the event of an emergency. Our certified instructors have more than 50 years of training experience, and we can adapt our presentations to meet a variety of learning needs. We offer classes seven days a week at any location of your choosing. Please email or call us with questions about our services.

Greater Boston Safety Training was founded by Chris Masiello, RN/BSN and Stacey Sherman M.Ed., after working as Health and Safety Instructor Trainers for the American Red Cross of Mass Bay. GBST offers a variety of land and aquatics based courses. As an American Heart Association Training Site and an Authorized Provider for the American Red Cross, Greater Boston Safety Training can offer courses in First Aid and CPR/AED. For the healthcare community, we offer Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Critical Life Support (ACLS).

We strive to deliver the best CPR and First Aid training wherever you need it and on your schedule. While group classes may be right for some people’s schedules, private instruction at your business, or healthcare facility may suit you better. We are happy to provide one of our licensed and certified trainers to come to any location for a group class.

We are located at:
100 TradeCenter Suite 555
Woburn MA, 01801

Our Services

Courses on your schedule!

We can offer our courses for 5 or more people at our Woburn location or at your location. Please contact us and we can set a course up to meet your schedule.

 Please note for Aquatics classes you must have a pool that meets Red Cross requirements and Wilderness must be taught in an outside location

Can't Find A Class?

The American Heart Association offers Heartcode option that allows students to take the class at home and test out with one of our instructors at your own time. Please contact us about scheduling one of the classes in BLS, First Aid/CPR/AED, ACLS or PALS.

Why Learn First Aid and CPR?

About 70% of Americans feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency, either because they do not know how to administer CPR or their training has significantly lapsed. This alarming statistic could hit close to home – HOME is exactly where 88% of cardiac arrests occur. The life you save with CPR is most likely to be someone you love.

Need Lifeguards and Swim Instructors?

For the summer season, it is always a struggle to staff your pools with lifeguards and certified swim instructors. Greater Boston Safety Training can help by offering Lifeguard Training and Water Safety Instructor courses. We also offer Shallow Water Lifeguarding which allows staff to lifeguard at pools up to 5 feet of water.

Babysitters Training

Our Babysitters Training with First Aid and CPR/AED is very popular with the community. A certified instructor will come to your location and teach up to 12 students how to be safe and successful babysitters. Topics include bottle business of babysitting, safety, bottle feeding, toileting and diapering, playtime and more. First Aid topics include bleeding, cuts, scrapes, burns, banging, Epi-pen, burns, and sudden illnesses such as diabetic emergencies and seizures. Contact us today about setting up a class.

Why Choose GBST

Our CPR, AED, First Aid and Instructor programs and curriculum draw from the very best resources available including those of the nationally recognized programs of the American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI), the American Heart Association (AHA) and American Red Cross (ARC). People who are uncomfortable taking tests appreciate our instructors’ helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and patient approach.  Alternatively, some programs allow you to choose an on-line course.
