  • Unmatched expertise.

    Having been in the military and worked a number of jobs requiring this certification, I am well versed in the diversity and comprehensiveness of training offered in such programs. Let me just say, this was by far the best, most practical and knowledge-laden version of training I had ever received. The real-world expertise of the trainers, Mare and Bob, led to a vibrant and productive discussion. Every one of us left feeling more comfortable about making the call to 911, but also handling a variety of situations until expert help arrives. Thank you Starting Hearts for all you do to equip our valley through equipment, knowledge, and awareness.
