AHA's Online Course Options!

 The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in all AHA courses and has developed instructional materials for this purpose.  Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA.  Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course materials, do not represent income to the AHA.

Through the American Heart Association we offer a large variety of classes that are listed below.

Note: In order to receive your AHA eCard, a valid email address is required at the time of class. Students who arrive greater than 5 minutes late for class will not be admitted into class. Students arriving later than the allowed 5 minute grace period will not be issued a refund.

 AHA Blended Learning Courses & Hands on Assessments

The American Heart Association offers various courses in a Blended Learning format. These blended learning courses require completion of AHA’s online curriculum followed by successful completion of a hands on assessment with a certified AHA Instructor. Students are expected to come to their hands on assessment prepared; remediation time is not included. Students who are not able to successfully pass the skills assessment will be required to retake their course or find remediation on their own and pay a second appointment fee to complete another hands on assessment at a later date. Hands on assessments are scheduled in a one-on-one format and must be scheduled a minimum of 2 weeks in advance. Please contact us at cews@indianhills.edu for additional details about our Blended Learning options.
