We support the mission of the American Heart Association's Emergency Cardiovascular Care Program to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke by improving the Chain of Survival in every community.

We provide courses in Adult CPR, AED, Child CPR, Infant CPR, for Healthcare Providers and the laypersons. Our courses are taught according to AHA 2010 Guidelines.

If you need CPR certification for your Nursing or Allied Health school or career, ensure that your completion card is a current and valid American Heart Association card. Don't be fooled by the statement "taught according to AHA guidelines" or some variation of that statement. Such statements do not make it a valid AHA card. The AHA course completion cards are the Gold Standard and are universally accepted by all employers.
