Does successful completion of a Heartsaver online program result in receipt of an AHA course completion card? If so, which card?
Upon successful completion of all three parts, students will receive a Heartsaver course completion card. Each card is valid for two years.
Is there a written test that must be completed for each Heartsaver online part 1 program?
No, the Heartsaver online programs do not include a written test. The programs do include review questions at the end of each section, but these questions are not test questions. The AHA does not mandate completion of a written test for Heartsaver courses; however, an optional written test has been developed for Instructors to administer to students whose employers require completion of a written test. This test can be obtained by through your LifeForceUSA, Inc. instructor.
