With the new PAM or Program Administration Manual release, the AHA no longer allows students to challenge a course. If you find a training location that offers this as an option it may not be an accepted certification.
Beginning January 1, 2018, all US-based AHA Training Centers will be required to use AHA's ecards for the issuance of course completion cards to providers and students who successfully complete the requirements of AHA courses.
SMRT Indiana is proud to announce that our training equipment already meets and exceeds new requirements set forward by the American Heart Association set for January 31, 2019. As technology and training strategies continue to evolve SMRT Indiana remains committed to staying at the forefront. See the official announcement below.
SMRT Indiana is excited to announce we will soon be offering Open Enrollment and On-Site NRP Certification Training. We estimate we will begin offering this much needed training as early as Fall of 2017.
