    Project Heartbeat offers ACLS, PALS, and BLS classes around the Bay Area. Their classes are taught by nurses and geared toward nursing. Highly recommend their classes! Check them out at,

    I would recommend for your CPR or ACLS classes. I think they also have CPR classes in San Francisco.

    Good luck.

    I highly recommend In Home CPR. It's run by Chris, a really sweet guy and excellent instructor, who comes to your home to do AHA BLS classes. My cert was about to expire and he did the class the next day and gave me the cert card at the end of the class. Saved me! I think he travels all over the Bay Area.

    I have done classes through Heartshare, Above Bar CPR, Emergency Response Training

    I just did my BLS at Above Bar and it was nice because you can do the class portion and test online through AHA and then you go in for only the practical. I would highly recommend. I also loved Emergency Response Training where I recently did ACLS. Great school! Heartshare I have taken BLS and and EKG course and I found that I didn't like them as much as the others. Even though Heartshare is literally down the street from my house I drove over the hill to Santa Cruz for both of the other classes.

    I recommend going to an official American Heart Association CPR Training Center. There are some schools that mail out the cards which can take up to 30 days to get. But San Jose CPR Certification hands out the BLS and ACLS certification cards on the day of the class.
