American Heart Association raises their prices with no notice!

You may have noticed our recent price changes or in some cases, lack thereof…  We are still dealing with the fallout of the American Heart Association’s recent decision to raise the price of the HEARTSAVER class certificates from $2.20 each to $17.00!  This was done without prior notice to instructors nationwide, sending our businesses into chaos.  We are doing our best to rearrange our pricing and class structures so that it minimizes the consequences for our clients.  Please bear with us as we try to cope.
