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.
