Due to our COVID policy and the security policy of our building, we only permit students who have paid for their AHA skills session or course on our site to access our location. Unknown persons are not permitted in our building - no exceptions. We only provide our location, class date and time to confirmed, paid students (this information is found in an email you will receive after you complete your purchase - check your spam folder if you don't see it right away). Since we do not accept cash, all students must purcahse their AHA course or skills session on our site before coming to our location.
Why should I take a class with A Learning Heart?
A Learning Heart's classes are compliant with American Heart Association requirements. Our knowledgeable, entertaining Instructors ensure each participant is confident in the knowledge and skills needed to administer aid should it be required. We integrate AHA science and proven teaching methods in every class by using the appropriate AHA video and referencing the student manual while practicing skills and during classroom discussion.
Why should I take an American Heart Association class instead of Red Cross?
The American Heart Association is the organization that funds the cardiovascular research by which other agencies set their guidelines. They are the nation’s oldest and largest organization devoted to fighting heart disease and stroke. AHA Provider cards are accepted at all hospitals nationwide.
What types of materials are used to teach?
Our class curriculum conforms to current American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines. Our mannequins also use feedback devices to ensure students receive the best quality education.
Can I schedule a class the same day it is taught?
Please contact us first (954) 228-4818 or info@alearningheart.shop to ensure there is enough space available for you.
What do I need to bring to class?
Students attending any renewal class must bring an unexpired card to class. Students attending any skills session must bring the Part 1 Certificate to class.
I’m not comfortable with training in a group setting. Can I do a private course?
Absolutely! Simply call our office at (954)-228-4818, and we can arrange a private course *requires an additional fee*.
Do you offer group training?
Yes, we offer group trainings on-site, and at your location. Please contact us for more information.
If I cancel or miss class, will I receive a refund?
We understand that emergencies happen and you may not be able to attend the course for which you registered.We will reschedule any class to a later date with as little as 48-hour notice. A Learning Heart will gladly reschedule a class that is cancelled to a time that is more convenient for you. No refunds will be provided. To reschedule a class or for questions, please contact us via call or text (954) 228-4818 or via email at info@alearningheart.shop
Is a minimum number of students necessary to have a class?
Never! We teach 1 or more students anytime during our classroom hours.
How long will it take to receive my certification card?
Same day cards are only given if available at the time of the course. AHA course completion certificates are sent via email to the address provided upon registration within 12-24 hours of course completion.
How long is each class?
Length of time depends on each class and when all learning objectives are met. Self-paced class times vary based on a number of factors, including knowledge level of the student and how much the student starts and stops their coursework. A BLS class may take 2-4 hours, and an ACLS or PALS class may take 5-8 hours. If you add BLS to an ACLS or PALS class, that will add 30 minutes to your total class time.
Can I bring food and drink to class?
Yes, small food only please. You will need to clean up after yourself. There will also be small refreshments provided.
Is AHA BLS the right course for me?
BLS is geared towards prehospital providers, like EMTs, paramedics, fire fighters, and in-facility hospital providers. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a course completion card, valid for two years. Please contact your employer to ensure that you are selecting the correct course.
My employer said I cannot do an online class yet you’re offering AHA Blended Learning courses?
AHA Blended Learning courses are different from online courses. AHA Blending Learning courses offer the video and lecture portion of the class online. Once that is complete you will meet with an AHA Instructor to conduct a skills testing session. The Instructor will answer any questions you may have and allow time for practicing before administering a CPR skills test which ultimately leads to the exact same course completion card that you would receive had you done a traditional classroom based course.
I require an ADA accommodation for a physical disability. Can I still get certified?
Yes! Our Instructors make every effort to accommodate a variety of physical disabilities. We do require a 7 day advanced notice.
Can I purchase a class for someone else?
Absolutely! Simply add the course(s) to your cart, check out, and then send the full name, phone number and email address of any additional students to us at info@alearningheart.shop.
Can I pay in cash? Can I pay over the phone?
Unfortunately, A Learning Heart does not accept any cash payments. All payments must be completed through electronic invoices or directly through the site.
How can I get involved in the AHA’s life saving mission without teaching CPR?
There are so many ways to get involved whether you want to host a Hands-only event online then share with friends and family or you’d like to participate in the annual American Heart Association Heart Walk in your community or maybe something as simple as being a Social Media volunteer, there are several convenient ways to get involved. https://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/volunteer/volunteerForm.jsp
