Prefer a convenient location option for your group of 8 or more?

Project Heartbeat makes every effort possible to provide classes available throughout the entire Bay Area.


In addition to classes conducted at one of our facilities, Project Heartbeat understands that it is much more convenient to send 1 instructor to your facility rather than sending all your students to ours. Therefore, any of our classes can be personalized to your needs and conducted at your home, workplace, school, hospital, or other healthcare facility.

Onsite classes can be scheduled 7 days a week during the morning, afternoon, early evening, or even during an extended work lunch break.

We will make every effort to tailor a class specific to your needs!

To schedule an onsite group class, please call (510) 452-1100, send us an email answering the questions in the form below to info@projectheartbeat.com, or fill out the form below:

Costs and Course Details

Continuing Education fee, Starting at $200 for ACLS or PALS renewal
Other courses offered:
Basic EKG and Pharmacology $200
TNCC renewal $500

This fee is paid by each individual who will be attending a course in any capacity while on ship, receiving course completions card(s) and/or CE certificates. This fee covers the cost of courses and the instructors providing them. The beauty of taking your CE courses during a destination/getaway, is that the cost of your travel may be partially or fully reimbursed to you by your employer. Obviously, this is based on you, the individual, and you must verify before booking this cruise if you are eligible for any funds from your employer's education "bank", and for how much.

Project Heartbeat does not secure payments from your employer. You are responsible for all costs involved with this cruise, and you are resposible to obtain any reimburements once you return. Letters of continuing education will be provided to you, as well as your certifications cards (for those taking ACLS, BLS or PALS, EKG, TNCC). We are not responsible for guaranteeing any reimbursements you may or may not receive.

NOTE: CE fees are ONLY paid by those attending the classes on ship. Family members and friends are NOT required to pay the additional fee!

Continuing Education (CE)

There are a variety of CE options available at this point. We need to see how many are joining us, and evaluate each students individual needs. Once you put down your initial cruise deposit, we will email you with some CE options from which to choose. This will enable us to narrow down which will be offered on the ship. NCL is only giving us a certain number of hours, but we will have three conference rooms for each time slot.

The dates and hours of CE courses (all at-sea days):
Monday July 3, 2017
Thursday, July 6, 2017

We hope to provide 8-24 contact hours (depending on your course load). To achieve 12-20 or more hours, online didactic or partial classroom attendance prior to cruise date may be necessary. We will assist you. This will also save you classroom time on the ship!

CE hours MAY BE fully reimbursable by your facility, through your education bank. Please verify this with your HR department or representative. All fees paid for educational purposes are tax-deductible!

CE courses being considered: (Other options may be added, suggestions welcome)
*ACLS renewal 8 contact hours
*PALS renewal 8 contact hours
EKG and Pharmacology 8 contact hours
TNCC renewal 7.7 Contact hours

*Courses provided through American Heart Association and/or Emergency Nurses Association guidelines

There WILL be the option of taking your didactic online by taking Part 1 of ACLS, PALS and BLS BEFORE coming on the ship, and merely "testing out" for 45 min to one hour— but receiving 4 or 8 full hours of credit. This will save you from having to sit in the classroom on the sea days!

We realize that you may still have questions. Feel free to e-mail us at allan@projectheartbeat.com or (510)452-1100, ext 0
