Our History and Team
HeartCert (originally Twin Cities Fire and Safety Services / Twin Cities Safety), was created in 2010 by Tim Smith, a full-time Twin Cities Fire Captain/EMT and his wife Christina, a Registered Nurse and former Paramedic. Tim and Christina had a true love for helping others and passionate about education and enhancing the community, so starting a CPR Training Company was a perfect fit. Tim started out doing 1 on 1 CPR and First Aid certification classes in his living room before expanding into multiple locations and adding 120+ very skilled, highly trained, healthcare professionals who share in his love for bettering their community and fun teaching style. HeartCert continues to grow as a local, family owned business and generously donates to a variety of charitable campaigns and organizations. We love to teach, and we love to give back to others, so we love what we are doing here at HeartCert. Our mission is to support that of the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association which strives to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. To better achieve these missions, we have expanded outside of the Twin Cities Metro area and now offer courses in multiple regions and states nationwide. We do this by providing affordable, quality training to everyone through our vast network of instructors, locations and revolutionary at-home and self-service training options to improve the quality of care and chance for survival in case of emergency.
We offer CPR and First Aid classes for all skill sets and levels of experience along with nursing and AED sales & service. Whether you are an experienced healthcare professional, or a new parent just wanting to know ‘the basics’, we have a class for you! We can teach a convenient one on one CPR or first aid training session, or we can certify a large group on-site depending on your needs. Accredited by the Better Business Bureau (A+ Rating), HeartCert offers superior customer service and outstanding quality for all of your training needs. You can be assured that you are making the correct choice in training with HeartCert as we offer the best classes, at unbeatable prices!
