In 2019 Heart Start Training Center was created out of the necessity. As EMTs in the New Jersey we found that there was a lack of CPR training in our region. It was common that our coworkers were not able to find any classes that suited their schedule and needs. HSTC was founded to further educate and create an environment where learning can actually occur.
Our goal is to have foster a learning environment in a small group setting (generally under 6 people per session). Speaking from experience, when training large groups of people key details are lost and people feel embarrassed to speak up when they do not understand something. By having a small group, our students are more engaged, retain information significantly longer and are able to perform in an emergency.
In creating HSTC, we acquired the ability to issue same-day certifications at no additional cost.
