Heart Start Cpr

Be a Hero, Save a Life


Why Choose Us?

The largest selling point for our clients is that all of the instructors for Heart Start CPR are Firefighters and Paramedics. This helps teach our students by learning from first-hand experiences what they may see, hear, and feel if they ever have to use what they learn in one of our classes. Anyone can take a week-long CPR instructor course, purchase the equipment and start teaching. Our team of professional firefighters and paramedics are what set Heart Start CPR apart from all other CPR instruction companies. All of us, as instructors, practice all skills covered in the course regularly in our daily professions.

  • American Heart Association Courses
  • Instructors are Firefighters, Paramedics, and EMTs

  • We offer CPR/AED, ACLS, BLS, and PALS classroom courses.

  • Our classes are low-stress and fun
  • Course scheduled weeknights and weekends

The focus of Heart Start CPR is conducting classes for small groups with personalized focus of instruction. The small group format and individual attention promotes a less stressful environment in which students are encouraged to ask questions and interact in a non-threatening environment. This format also provides for a nearly 100% pass rate because extra time and attention can be provided to students who require some extra time.

    Thank you, Heart Start, for your excellent CPR renewal class at our outpatient surgery center. Ray was a very knowledgeable instructor who provided us with a stress free learning environment in which to refresh our CPR skills. I highly recommend them for your staff recertification and will plan to use them again.

    Very pleased with Heart Start CPR. I just renewed my PALS certification and felt very comfortable in the class. The instructor helped everyone feel calm. It was a low stress environment while practicing our skills and reviewing all of the information needed for recertification. I will definitely go here in the future.

    Have taken initial and recert courses with HeartStart for several years now, and cannot recommend them enough!! All of the instructors are wonderful - super friendly, approachable, and very knowledgeable!! Even though I can take the classes for free through the hospital I work at, I prefer to pay for the fun & relaxed learning environment. No one wants to be stressed out, during a required course; and HeartStart makes sure everyone learns the material, and gets the necessary support and reinforcement, if they need it! Keep up the great work!!

    This is THE place to get your BLS ACLS PALS... it's where I've gone several times. There's no BS... they cut straight to the chase. The guys that work there are paramedics or fireman, so they have loads of real experience. They go over everything and make sure everyone is clear before they test you. They really make things a lot easier to understand. I prefer going to their 2 day courses rather than doing it online, because you learn so much more! They also answer the phone and emails quickly and can squeeze you into classes if you need it! They're very nice and understanding. Prices are reasonable too. They also have a Kurig coffee machine and provide some snacks!!! Being in the healthcare industry, I need to have my certifications up to date and I'm really glad I can count on these guys. Five stars all the way!!!

    This is the first time we used Heart Start for our training. Guess what? We will use them again. David Y. the instructor made it simple for our organization to understand why we are training to help save lives. He's quite knowledgeable and uses "hands on" techniques and thinking to get you prepared.
