For the courses that require skills testing for successful completion, a comprehensive online directory helps individuals find the most convenient testing center where they can earn their American Heart Association completion card or certificate. Students also have access to Health Education Solutions customer care specialists to answer any questions they might have.

“Health Education Solutions is excited about the introduction of these high-quality courses developed by the American Heart Association, a world leader in emergency cardiovascular care resources,” said David King, president of Health Education Solutions. “Our goal is to continue to grow the number of e-learning opportunities that we offer not only to health care professionals, but also to individuals who want to be better prepared for a medical emergency.”

American Heart Association online courses incorporate interactive questions and video segments to reinforce learning and apply techniques to real situations. Course content also provides remediation through challenge questions, skills practice, and skills testing. For detailed course descriptions and registration requirements, visit
