Our Courses

The AHA publishes the Guidelines for CPR and ECC, which set the standard for lifesaving first aid and CPR protocols and products around the world and make up the basis for our own lifesaving course materials used to teach first aid CPR and advanced cardiovascular care to millions of healthcare providers, caregivers and community members each year.

This year

15 million people

learn first aid, CPR and advanced care with AHA products.

From the heart

« In a recent course, a student who was renewing their provider Heartsaver first aid course, told me “with what I learned last time, I could have saved my wife who was choking”. His face showed charm and pride in the work done… and mine also. They are magical moments in which is put in evidence how some simple well learned actions change the lives of people. »

« The Portuguese “Republican National Guard (GNR)” now uses the Guidelines of American Heart Association for military basic life support training of all operatives and advanced life support for its healthcare nurses and doctors. In that way our police can serve and protect the population in expanded ways, providing the most up to date care in safety and security. »
