Instructor-led training in the classroom offers the greatest amount of practice time and interaction with the instructor.
In the continued interest of public safety, we restrict the number of students in each class. In fact, our students comment that they appreciate the smaller class size and more personalized instruction.
We encourage students and the instructor to wear a mask at all times. Likewise, all equipment is thoroughly cleaned between each class and appointment.
CSRE and our students recommend the AHA HeartCode® blended learning model. Upon successful completion of the eLearning course and hands-on skills requirements, students receive an AHA Course Completion eCard.
There are two options for completing your registration:
Option 1: Register for the eLearning + Skills Session and your course fee will include the HeartCode® eLearning code for your course(s) in addition to an appointment for your skills session. You will select a date for your skills session during the registration process.
Option 2: If you already have a Course Completion Certificate from a HeartCode® eLearning course, register for a Skills Session appointment only. The hands-on skills session will satisfy “Part 2” of the Blended Learning Model. To purchase the HeartCode® eLearning course yourself, you will find the options on the AHA store.
