Director & Founder – Nick Rondinelli
Nick Rondinelli began his lifesaving career as a Lifeguard and Water Safety/Swimming Instructor in Thunder Bay, Ontario. After working 10 years as a First Aid and CPR Instructor with the Canadian Red Cross, Nick opened Heart to Heart First Aid/CPR Services, an Authorized Provider for the Canadian Red Cross. His company has been in operation for 15 years and has trained and certified over 40,000 people in First Aid and CPR. Since its inception, Heart to Heart has become one of the top training partners for the Canadian Red Cross and in recent years was awarded 2nd largest Red Cross provider in Ontario. Nick is also one of the select few Red Cross Instructor Trainers in Ontario responsible for certifying and re-certifying Red Cross instructors.
During this time, Nick also pursued a career in television production. Nick graduated from Confederation College in the Radio and Television Broadcasting Program. Combining both of his passions, Nick Rondinelli produced, directed and hosted “First Response,” a series of First Aid/ CPR and health and safety videos which have been approved by the Canadian Red Cross, American CPR Training and British Red Cross and is used in courses throughout Canada, the USA and the UK.
Today you will find Nick working hard on building his businesses, Heart to Heart First Aid CPR Services Inc. and his television production company, Giraffe Multimedia Inc. He values his clients and works hard everyday to develop the best training possible with easy to learn teaching methods and high quality multimedia resource materials. “I could never have done it without the support of my clients, community and amazing staff …and for that I am forever grateful,”- says Nick. “The biggest gift that I can give back is ensuring that each and every student that is trained by Heart to Heart leaves with the confidence, skills and compassion that is required to help someone else in a time of need.”
Nick’s other great accomplishment was receiving the Duke of Edinborough Canadian Gold Award presented to him by Prince Phillip. But his greatest and most recent accomplishment, if you ask him, was becoming a proud father of a baby boy which he cherishes most of all.
