                One of the best BLS/CPR training I've ever attended. A lot of hands-on experience including experience working with a team. The training is very organized and transitions smoothly from topic to topic. The practice manikins provide real-time feedback. The trainers also provide hands-on feedback and are more than willing to stay after for additional help. I feel confident in my abilities to provide high-quality care after this training. I definitely recommend Start the Heart, LLC, to anyone needing or wanting training in CPR or BLS. They also have training available for adolescents who want to be more prepared when babysitting and to learn skills that may be needed in emergency situations!

                 

                Brittany   * * * * * 

                I have nothing but great things to say about my experience with Start the Heart! I took a class a long time ago at their first location and absolutely loved it. It was so interactive and they spent a lot of time answering the class' questions and making sure we had a clear understanding of what we were doing. I came back a few years later and was again blown away by the experience. Their new location is twice as big, and their set up is just great! I recommend anyone serious about LEARNING and getting interactive with CPR, sign up at Start the Heart.

                Mary   * * * * *

                Scott and Brenda are absolutely fantastic at Start the Heart... They are funny, informative and passionate about CPR. The classes are very hands-on and they give feedback throughout the course in a constructive way so that you learn the proper techniques. I have been coming here to re-certify my BLS for the past few years and wouldn't think to go anywhere else. They offer classes on the weekends and never cancel regardless of the size of the class! Recommend them without any hesitation!

                Lindsey   * * * * *

                WOW! Took the BLS Provider class today and was simply blown away! I've been certified for nearly 15 years now and this was by far the most engaging and thorough class I've ever taken part in. The space itself is clean, organized, and inviting. Scott and Brenda co-teach a wonderful course with video instruction, class discussion, and hands-on experience. I will recommend them to anyone both in and out of the healthcare field. Thank you for what you do!

                Tiffany   * * * * *

                Highly recommend Start the Heart! Easy to schedule, quick availability of skills test session and knowledgeable instructors who give quality feedback. I have been taking BLS and ACLS for years and this is one of the best instruction / Skills test session experiences I have ever had. Thank you!

                 Rebecca   * * * * * 

                This was the best CPR training I have had in the last 20 years for my field of work. They work great together and make everything clear and hands on. I highly recommend! I have been to their training twice and look forward to going, not like past CPR training I have had other places. Great Place!

                Matt   * * * * *

                My office has used Start the Heart for two consecutive years to train our staff in CPR and First Aid readiness and we will use them again in the future. They were easy to communicate with, prompt to respond, and flexible to meet our scheduling and space limitations. On a personal note, I have been certified in CPR/First Aid for almost 20 years and this was definitely the best and most informative class I've taken! I highly recommend them.

                 David   * * * * * 

                We use Start the Heart annually and have no intentions of looking elsewhere for CPR / AED / First Aid services. Scott and Brenda are really on top of the subject matter and have answers to all of our employees' questions. We get positive feedback every year from our employees. They also helped us with purchasing products for our First Aid Kits and our AEDs. Highly recommend them for your training needs. You will not be disappointed.
