The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in all AHA courses and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course materials, do not represent income to the AHA.

We offer a variety of courses through the American Heart Association.  If you are not sure which course is right for your needs just give us a call or send an e-mail and we will help you decide which class you should register into.
