Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I KNOW OF UPCOMING CLASSES AND EVENTS?
WHAT IS THE PRICE FOR THE COURSES?
Class prices range from $60 to $200. Several factors are taken into consideration; the certification(s) needed, and is it a new or renewal course. We recommend you call us at 239-633-9089 so we can quote you an accurate fee.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE MY COURSE COMPLETION CARD FROM THE AHA?
American Heart Association no longer issues a physical card. Students now receive eCards. Upon completion of courses students will receive an email with a link that will direct them to claim their eCard(s).
IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE A HARD-COPY PROOF-OF-TRAINING?
Yes. Once you claim your eCard, you will have the option to print it. Flexible eCard formats allow you to print a full or wallet-sized physical copy of their card, making it easy to show proof they have successfully completed training requirements.
WHEN DO I NEED TO RENEW MY COURSE COMPLETION CARD?
Course completion cards are valid for two years through the end of the month during which the course completion card was issued.
IF I AM AN AHA INSTRUCTOR, DO I NEED TO KEEP MY PROVIDER CARD CURRENT?
The AHA does not require an Instructor to have a valid provider card. However, policy from different agencies or regulatory bodies may make this a requirement.
DO YOU OFFER COURSES IN OTHER LANGUAGES?
Yes. In Spanish.
