The training was great! Exactly what I needed, and more. Looking to get my Personal Trainers certification renewed, which required a renewed CPR/AED. The Heartsaver class was perfect. Fulfilled the requirements, local location, with a very good and knowledgeable instructor! Will be back for future renewals.
