Project Heartbeat is a stress free learning environment and we have a relaxed teaching style. Our primary focus is to provide quality education with an excellent backing of superior customer service experience. We guarantee our products and treat our patrons exceptionally and do not look at them as dollar signs. If you have taken a course with use, whether you have passed or not, you are welcome to come back within one year time to retake the course. We are more concerned about doing the right thing and ensuring our students are prepared for an emergency. You will get no other experience like this in the Bay Area. All of our instructors bring real life experiences to their classes and offer first-hand information for any questions you may have. If you need more assurance for why to choose Project Heartbeat, one of our associates would love to chat with you and discuss any questions you may have.

We have been in open since 1996, serving communities in and around the Bay Area. We have educated thousands of individuals with a great success rate and affordable prices.

We have a 99% success rate in our American Heart Association courses. We are dedicated to ensure all of our students are well prepared for the skills and written exams at the end of every course. We ensure that students who do not feel comfortable have the opportunity to come back to another course within the next year until they feel comfortable with the information.

No. We guarantee that our instructors will deliver quality education necessary to pass our on our AHA classes. You will receive 1 free retest on the same day after reviewing the material with an instructor 1-on-1.  If you do not pass, you are welcome to come back to any scheduled course and retake the class (additional fee). If you pass, but don’t feel comfortable with the material, you are also welcome to come back and attend the same class for no additional charge.  Please note: You must have an updated AHA textbook during the class, and the exam is open book/open notes.  The AHA mandates that a textbook is available to you before, during and after the class.  If you choose not to purchase a textbook for any reason, you will not be allowed a free retest and must take the course again, additional fees apply.
