Which class should I take?

If you are “any kind” of medical provider; MD, RN, CNA, MA, Paramedic, EMT, Radiology Tech, Phlebotomist, LPN, Respiratory Therapist, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist...anyone and everyone else who works in the medical field; you need the American Heart Association BLS for the Healthcare Provider and we are happy to offer it to you. If you have any questions click here to What Class Should I Take? Or give us a call at 720-639-2623

If I am not a medical provider which class is right for me?

In most cases our Basic CPR/AED and First Aid course would be right for you but different circumstances may apply. The course carries an OSHA approved two year certification from the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI). There is an American Heart Association certification option as well if you need an AHA Cert. If you have any questions about which class is right for you please call our office and we will find you the proper course for your needs. 720-639-2623

Are your classes certified by the American Heart Association?

Yes we are an authorized American Heart Association (AHA) training site and all of our instructors are AHA endorsed instructors. Upon completion of any of our AHA courses you will receive a certification from the AHA good for 2 years. For our Basic CPR/AED and First Aid course we use the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) for accreditation but offer the option for an AHA certification if that is what you need. If you have any questions concerning any of our classes please feel free to call our office at 720-639-2623

Do I need a book?

Per the American Heart Association; everyone is required to have access to a book during and after class. The book is great reference material as everything we teach in class is covered in the book. The current Provider Manual is good until 2020. You may also use your book during the written test. If you do not have access you can buy a book from us when you register and pay for your class or at the class itself.

Books are also available via Worldpoint and Channing Bete

What should I do to prepare for class?

If you are taking ACLS or PALS there is a precourse self-assessment that you must complete with a score of 85% or better. You may take the precourse test as many times as you need. To access the precourse self-assessment click here.There is also instructions on how to access the pretest in your ACLS or PALS registration email.

If you are taking any other full course there is no preparation necessary. Just show up to class and we will take care of everything for you.

If you are taking a Hybrid Skills course you must complete the online portion (which we can provide for you) via the AHA website and bring your printed certificate of completion with you to your skills session to give to your instructor.

If you have any questions please feel free to call our office at 720-639-2623

Am I required to do compressions during class?

You are! While we understand that you may have an injury, ailment or condition that may prevent you from doing a lot of compressions; our instructors are required to see you physically perform “some” quality compressions properly. We will do all that we can to accommodate your condition.

If you have any questions concerning what we are required to see please call our office. 720-639-2623

What should I wear to class?

As you will be doing a number of compressions, ventilations, running a code scenario and basically moving around a fair amount; you should wear comfortable clothing. Depending on the location you may have to do compressions and run your code on either a table or the floor so be prepared for both.

If you have any questions please feel free to call our office at 720-639-2623

When will I receive my card?

In this digital age paper cards are now a thing of the past and cards are electronic now. After completion of your class you will receive an email from eCards@heart.org which will contain instructions for retrieving your e-card from the AHA website. Cards can take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks to be sent and though they are usually pretty quick they can take up to 2 weeks. If you need something saying that you are certified please let your instructor know and they can give you a Letter of Completion stating that you are certified and will be receiving your e-card from the AHA soon.

If you have any questions please feel free to call our office at 720-639-2623

My card has expired; is there a grace period for renewal?

Your card is good until the end of the month of the year that is printed on your card. For example if your card states that the course date is 1-1-2018 your card is “technically” good until the end of January of 2020 though most managing facilities do not see it that way. Make sure you understand exactly what your administration expects.

For more information on your certification needs please call our office. 720-639-2623

Do I get CEU’s (continuing education units) for my class?

Depending on your discipline, your governing body, or the state in which you are licensed there may be continuing education units (CEUs) for ACLS and PALS available to you. If you require CEU or CME credits for a specialty area, you may copy your card and record the class in the “MISC” category on your specialty application. AHA recommends 6.5 hours for ACLS and PALS Recertification (1 day) courses and 12 hours for ACLS and PALS Provider (2 day) courses.

Do you offer group discounts?
