The American Heart Association offers both Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Provider (HCP) and Heartsaver CPR/AED Online. This offers a flexible CPR training option for for those who do not wish to sit in a classroom type setting.
How it works:
Part 1. Students complete the online, cognitive portion of the course, either at the workplace or anywhere with Internet access. When students finish the online portion, a certificate of completion will be available for them to print.
The certificate is required to complete Part 2 at an authorized American Heart Association Training site such as Advantage CPR .
To purchase Part 1, go to onlineaha.org
HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS: Choose option “Heart Code BLS for Healthcare Providers Part One” $25.00
LAY RESCUERS: Choose Option: Heartsaver CPR/AED $23.00 (Lay Rescuers include Home/Senior Care, Law Enforcement, Personal Training, Physical Therapy, Teachers, etc.)
Part 2. After completing the online test, you will need to get your skills validation test with one of our American Heart Association instructors. Upon successful completion of both parts, students will be issued an American Heart Association Two Year Course Completion Card.
Advantage CPR normally schedules the skills check with individuals at our Mill Street address, although this can be performed in other locations at your request. The Heartsaver Basic CPR/AED practice session and testing can usually be completed in one half hour. The Heartcode BLS Skills session lasts approximately 90 minutes.
Check our current class schedule to sign up for a skills check session. Group skills checks are $35.00 per person.
We do offer private skills checks. Private Heartsaver Skills Checks are $40.00 and private Heartcode BLS skills check sessions are $60.00. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or text us at (775) 830-6691 to schedule a skills check at your convenience.
Taking an AHA Skills Test requires completion of the online AHA course(www.OnlineAHA.org). Courses not created by the AHA will not be accepted for Skills Tests. A Skills Test is not a teaching session. If you do elect to take a Skills Test and are not successful, no refunds will be issued, you will be required to participate in the full AHA course in which you are attempting to be certified, and you will be responsible for the additional payment associated with that course.
