What about an interpreter? Only the student registered for the course will be allowed entrance. No pets or children. Special accommodations/requests need to be made PRIOR to the course during business hours.
Can I arrive late for class?
Classes will start promptly; While we are reasonable, arriving after the start time of your scheduled class is considered a cancellation and will not be eligible for refund.
Do I have to have a student provider manual for class?
Yes. The AHA requires each student to have access to a student provider manual before, during and after the course. You can purchase the manuals at time of registration, online, or at our office.
Where can I find the ACLS and/or PALS pre-course assessment?
The AHA pre course assessment can be found at www.heart.org/eccstudent. BEFORE THE COURSE, it is required to review and understand the information in your ACLS/PALS Provider Manual and successfully complete the self-assessment modules on the above website with a passing score of 70. You will need to enter in the password found in your Provider Manual on page ii. You will be required to turn in the scores from your completed self-assessment. More information can be found in your student manual.
If I cancel my class, how will my course cost be refunded?
As mentioned all fees are non-refundable.

What are eCards? Are they the same as a regular hard copy card?
The AHA now offers online eCards! Electronic course cards are viewable online, and offer a valid alternative to printed course cards. Can be presented to employers as proof of successful completion of an AHA course, and employers can verify the eCard online. May be printed, if needed. Once you have been assigned an eCard (within 1-2 business days of the course), you will receive an e-mail notification with a link to claim your AHA eCard online. eCards can be viewed/printed online for 2 yrs.
The class I want to register for shows it is full online. Can I be squeezed in?
No. If a class is showing full, the class location is at max capacity.
