Certified Trainers or Courses – BeAware of cheep courses, you could be waisting your money,
The American Heart Association does not certify trainers, doctors or training courses created by other organizations. Any claims that training products or materials are “AHA Certified,” “AHA Approved,” “AHA Compliant” or “created by AHA certified” people, where the “AHA” means the American Heart Association, are not true. Only AHA American Heart Association is the real thing. Use CPR Safety Services an honest AHA training site.
