Heart Starters


We have been using Heart Starters since 2002.  The training that is provided is beyond compare.  All of the instructors are professional and delivered instruction that was not only educational but current and charismatic.

We will continue to utilize their services.

I would like to say thank you to your for the First Aid and CPR training Heartstarters provided to members of the Halton Regional Police Service.  We are mandated to provide quality training to all our front line members.  As such, the training you provided was excellent.  You were flexibile with the schedule meeting our very demanding needs in order to get all our front line officers trained in first aid and CPR.  This was a daunting task and you managed this with ease from our perspective.  I received many very positive comments about the training our members received.  Many advised that it was the best first aid training they had ever received.  They commented that they felt they could actually do something if they arrived at a scene before EMS and someone required first aid.

I look forward to working with Heart Starters again in the future.

“Heart Starters is a company I have been using for the past few years at the YMCA.  The staff are knowledge, friendly and provide a fun atmosphere when conducting our yearly CPR & First Aid Re-certification.  I highly recommend Heart Starters to any Company/Organization that may be seeking to have their CPR/First Aid completed or require any re-certification”

Unicorn has used Heart Starters for First Aid, CPR training for the last 5

plus years.  Easy to follow directions and great comprehensive training with
details on meeting DNA needs for the Child Care field such as Epi pen use,
and D-fibrulator instructions.  The instructors make staff feel comfortable
with the hands on training and answer any questions we may have. Thorough
and comfortable training sessions help everyone feel more at ease, and
confident to apply First Aid and CPR should need ever arise.

We have had the pleasure of working with Heart starters for almost 10 years now and continue to be impressed at the level of knowledge and professionalism we’ve become accustomed to experiencing from them.

Gus and Brian are terrific at presenting the information in a way that is interesting and fun while not undermining the importance of the information they need to deliver. We have been extremely pleased with their services over the years and have had only positive feedback from all the staff each time we book them for our cpr and defibrillator renewals. We look  forward to continue using Heart starters in the future!

I would like to say that over the years Yonge Street Street Mission has received top-notch support from Heart Starters.  In fact, when I start the process of organizing a First Aid and CPR training day, staff want to ensure it’s Heart Starters that will do the training.  I have even had folks ask me if the trainer will be Gus.  That’s how highly Heart Starters is thought of here at YSM.  I find working with Heart Starters really easy because they are so flexible.
