Quality of Training & Consistency

  • AHA is the source of the science behind the development the AHA Guidelines for CPR & ECC and thus all of our training courses.
  • Blended and eLearning encourages consistency; training ensures all students learn all topics necessary to help increase survival rates.
  • Students still complete in-person hands-on sessions and testing for courses requiring CPR and other psychomotor skills.


  • Students can complete online courses at home or on the go, on their preferred desktop or tablet device.
  • Instructors focus on important psychomotor skills practice and training to ensure the student is able to perform.
  • Companies and healthcare organizations can overcome obstacles such as reaching remote employees and diverse learning styles.

Operational Efficiency

  • Time in Training Centers' classrooms is minimized as only the hands-on skills session needs to be completed in person, instead of tying up classroom time for the entire course. Training is completed mostly on the student's schedule which leads to increased satisfaction.
  • While there is an initial operational commitment to jumpstart blended and eLearning at your organization, this eventually results in effective and efficient training based on how you manage it.

AHA Blended Learning and eLearning caters to all organization types, including healthcare organizations, business and corporations, and community organizations, such as schools and sports organizations.

AHA eLearning courses give students the flexibility to learn at their own pace and on their own schedule, anywhere and anytime an internet connection is available. eLearning courses are fully self-directed, and do not require a separate skills testing.

Blended: Online + Hands-On

Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner online, followed by a hands-on skills session. The hands-on skills session is completed in person with an AHA Instructor or using a Voice Assisted Manikin (VAM), where available.
