AHA Blended Learning
What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner online, followed by a hands-on session.
The hands-on session is completed in person with an AHA Instructor or using a Voice Assisted Manikin (VAM), where available. The online portion is due prior to ALL scheduled skills demonstration sessions.
Please note that CPR ”R” US’s offices will be closed on weekends and holidays. Thus, you will need to submit your online portion to info@cprrus.com and request assistance to retrieve your certification during business hours.
All candidates who do not have an online portion submitted to info@cprrus.com prior to the scheduled skills demonstration session will be considered unprepared and have to make an additional payment for a new appointment.

  • Online courses must be purchased and completed through CPR “R” US before scheduling an appointment for the walk-in skills clinic.
  • BLS’s 2-hour online portion duration must be completed prior to the class.
  • PALS’s 4-hour online portion duration must be completed prior to the class.
  • ACLS’s 5-hour online portion duration must be completed prior to the class.

After successfully completing the online course, you can attend the walk-in clinic. There must be a 24-hour window between completing the online course and the walk-in clinic.
