The American Heart Association offers both Instructor-Led classroom and eLearning “Blended Learning” courses to provide complete, flexible training solutions.
In this Instructor-led course format, students are with an AHA instructor for their entire learning experience. These 100% classroom courses are a good option for students who learn most effectively in a classroom environment with other students. These courses are taught by American Heart Association Instructors, who administer both the cognitive portion of the course and hands on skills practice and testing. In certain courses, students may also complete a written exam. Certification Cards are given out at the end of class.
