eLearning Benefits

The Benefits of AHA eLearning

The American Heart Association offers eLearning and blended learning courses to provide complete, flexible training solutions.

Students are able to complete online training at their own pace, while companies and healthcare organizations can overcome obstacles such as scheduling, reaching remote employees and diverse learning styles.

Consistency & Quality

  • Blended and eLearning training ensures all students learn all topics necessary to help increase survival rates. Research has shown more consistency in eLearning training.
  • AHA is the source of the science behind the development of all of its training courses, and the AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC are a proven source of quality.
  • Students still complete in-person hands-on skills sessions and testing for courses requiring CPR and other psychomotor skills


  • Time in Training Center's classrooms is minimized as only the hands-on skills session needs to be completed in person. Training is completed mostly on the student's schedule.
  • Students can complete online courses anytime and anywhere with internet access. Courses can be completed at home or on the go, on any preferred desktop or tablet device.
  • Students can review topics difficult to them and complete the course at their own pace. This improves the changes of student's high performance at the skills session (for blended learning courses) and in real life situations.
  • CE credit is available for all of these courses; refer to course pages for specifics.
  • The student manual is provided with the online course if required; it does not need to be purchased separately.

Business Training Solutions

Many corporations and healthcare organizations train employees and designated first responders so they can provide appropriate rescuer action as part of their job or in the event of a workplace emergency. AHA eLearning offers the convenience and flexibility needed to effectively train large numbers of students, giving them the option to complete their training anytime, anywhere.

The AHA offers options for organizations to manage a large volume of eLearning courses, with different features and levels of participation.
