Course Format and Exam
Students may take this course in a classroom setting with an AHA instructor or in a blended-learning format. During the classroom course, an AHA Instructor conducts video-based lessons and works with students to complete their CPR and AED skills practice and testing. Students taking the blended learning version will take the cognitive portion online and then complete a Skills Practice and Skills Test at a local AHA training center that offers that service.
