Working Together to Save Lives Around the World

Cardiovascular disease (including heart disease and stroke) is the leading cause of death around the world. In fact, CVD accounts for more than 17 million deaths per year, a figure expected to reach approximately 23 million per year by 2030. We’re here to help change that. With more products in more languages, a network of more than 30,000 instructors and training centers around the world, we work to bring quality American Heart Association lifesaving programs to you. Because, the more people who know lifesaving CPR the more lives can be saved.

With courses in more than eight languages and distributed in over 90 countries, the American Heart Association works around the world to increase the chain of survival. Our international website offers:
  • 8 languages
  • Product information for translated products
  • Purchase options for easy ordering

Resources and Programs

American Heart Association Atlas

The American Heart Association (AHA)  released a NEW Training and Education platform called Atlas. This NEW platform replaces CPRverify and the Global Connector to become the ONE place for your instructor, student, and Training Center management needs. Students can search for classes, claim course completion cards, and find a training center. Instructors and Training Centers can verify completed training, manage class rosters and access course information and tools. The AHA Atlas digital platform will serve as the resuscitation training resource hub for students and instructors.
