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.

After completing the Standard First Aid CPR-BLS 2 day course at Heart2Heart, I can say that my experience was amazing! My instructors, Debby and Anthony, were great. They were very clear when explaining things, they answered questions to the best of their knowledge, they made the class enjoyable, and above all, they were extremely kind and supportive. The administrative coordinators at Heart2Heart were very helpful as well in helping me change my registration to the right course after I originally registered for the wrong course. I 100% recommend going through Heart2Heart to obtain any certifications, as they have you leaving the course feeling confident in providing First Aid and/or CPR in case of an emergency where there is no one else to help.read more

What is Blended Learning?

Blended Learning means on-line / in-class training. Instead of doing two full days in class, you would complete half the course at home or office and the other half in-class. Participants must first complete the self-paced online component, which includes a knowledge evaluation, then successfully complete an Instructor-led classroom component (skills practice and evaluation session) in order to achieve certification. Currently, we offer Standard First Aid CPR/AED C or HCP and CPR/AED C or HCP.

Heart to Heart offers a few varieties of discounts.

Student Discounts:

When you choose a course and date you will see a drop-down menu listing our Student Discount prices. Be sure to click on the Student Discount price and bring your student ID or any proof you are a student to the course.

Bring A Friend(s):

In the same drop-down menu you will see our "Bring A Friend" prices - if you have even more friends that want to come, please contact our office and we will either honour the same price or extend an even better discount.

Group Discounts:

If you organize a group and have over 8 participants, we can come to your location. Inquire with our office and we will send your desired course description with our group price breakdowns - basically, the more participants you have, the cheaper the price. For groups less than 7 participants, we can book your group into any of our public courses, and you will still receive a great discount. For more information, see Group Bookings or Book a Group above OR contact our office.
