100% classroom training means students are with an AHA instructor for their entire learning experience. This video-based, instructor-led course teaches skills with the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which allows instructors to observe the students, provide feedback, and guide the students’ learning of skills.
The blended format starts with the student taking the eLearning portion of the Heartsaver® CPR AED. Upon completion of the online portion, students must complete a hands-on skills session with one of our AHA Heartsaver® Instructors.
The online portion can be completed in approximately 1 hour, 45 minutes; the time to complete skills practice and testing session varies.
