We primarily offer Blended Training CPR courses. We have found that students who complete the online course with eSimulation followed by a hands-on skills session have a much greater understanding and retention of the information and skills needed to successfully perform quality CPR. This combination of learning methods is more adaptable to different learning styles. It also allows us to offer hands-on sessions to smaller groups or even individual sessions, in order to work with challenging schedules. You can complete the online course at your convenience, and the hands-on session is much shorter than a full in-person course.
We offer on-site trainings for groups of 4 or more. Discounts are available for groups; contact us for more information.
If you need a different course (Heartsaver adult only, pediatric only, etc), or you would prefer to take the full in-person course, please contact us.

The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in all AHA courses and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course materials, do not represent income to the AHA.
"I have been training with Thomas for over 10 years now. As a former ballet dancer and current Pilates instructor, I have valued Thomas’s knowledge and his ability to work with my particular body issues. And, equally important to me, Thomas is a great friend and an exceptionally kind and generous person."
"My workouts are tailored to my concerns. They are always challenging and I'm now a fan of dead lifts and even split squats! I have improved my bone density readings, decreased my cholesterol, and lowered my blood pressure. I highly recommend Thomas as a personal trainer."
