Provider Cards
American Heart Association provider cards are produced by my training center and are mailed within two weeks of your course completion.
If you need proof of course completion prior to receiving your card a letter affirming your participation and course completion can be provided for a nominal fee.


AHA Policy regarding text books…
AHA policy states you must have a book.  The prices of my courses do not include books or online activation keys.
If you need a book, you may choose from one of the three authorized AHA Materials retailers.  The AHA has mandated that their books and educational materials be priced the same by all three retailers, so shopping will not reveal a better price anywhere.  Unauthorized retailers offering discounts often are selling dated materials.  Be sure you get the right book.  With the 2015 update and changes the introduction of an e-book option became available.  It is your choice to have the ebook or a standard paper book as long as you have a book.  It is common practice for many facilities and services to have these books available to borrow for courses.  Please start with your facility or service to see if you can borrow a book.

For the two HeartCode Courses my price does not include the key to activate the online material.  The keys are available from the same three authorized AHA Materials retailers.  


The Steadfast Rules
You must have a book and a completed pretest in hand before we begin instruction for any of the lecture based courses.

For the HeartCode Courses you will need to bring your successful completion certificate to take the skills portion.

For the Experienced Provider Course you will need your successful test completion certificate before we begin instruction and skills testing.
