provides Healthcare BLS, ACLS, Heartsaver CPR, First Aid, Non-certification CPR (Family and Friends), and Bloodborne Pathogen
training programs. Founded in 7/2/2001 by Mary Houska. HeartStarter's
mission is to provide high quality life saving programs in Sioux Falls and the surrounding areas.
Certified an EMT-Paramedic since 1984, Mary has responded for victims of
cardiac arrest and accidents in which citizens trained in CPR and First Aid have made a dramatic difference in how the victim
survived and recovered.
As a resident in Sioux Falls since 1992 it was obvious
we needed more high quality CPR/First Aid and ACLS classes available to the public.
Our goal is simple "Save Lives".
In 2002 HeartStarters received recognition as an American Heart Association Training Center.
Heartstarters is also an authorized training center for ASHI and Medic First Aid. Watch for the introduction of the Workplace
Responders promotions featuring ASHI workplace training.
Heartstarters trains anyone who wants to learn. Whether you want to learn CPR
to be prepared for a family member, or need certification for work. We have your training needs covered. We can do the training
at your location or at Heartstarters!
