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.
Do I need a book?
According to 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 cover in class is discussed 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.
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 via the AHA website and bring your printed certificate of completion with you to your skills session and give it to your instructor.
Am I required to do compressions during class?
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 what 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 and running a code scenario you should wear comfortable clothing. Depending on location you may have to do compressions and run your code on either a table or the floor so be prepared for both.
When will I receive my card?
There are no more paper cards. Everything is electronic now. After completion of your class you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org which will contain instructions for retrieving your card from the AHA website. Cards can take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks to be sent. They are usually pretty quick but 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 card from the AHA soon.
My card has expired; is there a grace period for renewal?
NO...There is no longer any sort of grace period. There is no difference between a renewal or a first time certification for BLS and Heartsaver. But there is different options for ACLS and PALS. 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?
