HOW TO GET YOUR AHA CERTIFICATION WITH CPR EXPRESS
CPR EXPRESS is the most convenient way to complete your CPR certification in three simple steps!
Purchase the online certification class you need. Initial and renewal students take the same course when it is online. Once you have made the purchase you will receive two emails; first your receipt and 2nd a key code with subsequent link to the online cognitive learning section.
COMPLETE COURSE ONLINE
Complete the online cognitive training portion of class when it is convenient for you. When you have finished print your course "Certificates of Completion”. This is not your AHA certification. You will need to bring this with you when you complete step three.
COMPLETE SKILLS SESSION
Complete your hands-on skills practice and testing section with one of our friendly and knowledgeable instructors, and your certification card will be emailed to you within 24 hours!
For American Heart Association courses that include psychomotor skills such as CPR, students must complete a hands-on session to obtain an AHA course completion card. With AHA blended learning, students will practice and test skills to ensure competency during the hands-on session.
Hands-on sessions are conducted in person with an AHA Instructor by using a Voice Assisted Manikin (VAM), where available. These skills sessions focus on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols, and skills testing.
If you purchased your course through RESQ, there is no additional cost for the hands-on skills session.
BLS, CPR or First Aid
