Are there any special COVID-19 training precautions?
Yes. To minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission during AHA courses, the American Heart Association has put protocols in place that allow us to do our classes virtually. The upcoming classes will be done via Zoom. During this session, you will be able to watch the videos and interact with our instructor(s) and take a written exam. Upon successful completion of this process, you will need to be scheduled for a hands-on skills test. When all course requirements are met you will receive an AHA completion card valid for 2 years. Upon registration you will receive a link to the email provided that will allow you access to the course.
