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!
