DUE TO THE COVID CRISIS, ONSITE GROUP TRAININGS ARE NOT THE ONLY OPTION NOW. WE HAVE DEVELOPED REMOTE, ONLINE TRAINING TO MAINTAIN YOUR LIFESAVING SKILLS AND KEEP YOUR CERTIFICATIONS CURRENT
We follow all international guidelines established by the International Liaison for Cardiac Resuscitation (ILCOR), the Global Resuscitation Academy, and the American Heart Association. By attending national conferences and bringing information back to edit into our student texts, you will receive the most"cutting edge" information available.
Our experienced EMS medical professionals will give you practical, "user friendly" instruction in lifesaving skills like CPR, AED use, Custom First Aid (Adult, Pediatric, Sport Medic), Standard Precautions and "Stop The Bleed". We have courses for kids; Junior Emergency Responder, KidsWatch for baby sitting.
Heartsmart was formed over 30 years ago (1989) by EMS and Nursing professionals to give you custom, site specific training unlike most national courses like Red Cross, American Heart, National Safety Council that are "generic" . This specialization is key as you now will get training that is practical for your needs and is instructed by EMS professionals who have "been there, done that"!
