For American Heart Association courses that include psychomotor skills such as CPR, students must complete an in-person skills practice and testing session to obtain an AHA course completion card. With AHA Blended Learning, the skills practice and skills test are taken together during a Hands-on Skills Session after the student completes the eLearning portion online.

Skills Sessions are conducted by authorized AHA Instructors, or, in the case of HeartCode® courses, students can conduct the in-person skills practice and testing on a voice-assisted Manikin (VAM). The VAM serves as the Instructor and precisely measures the learner’s proper execution of the necessary psychomotor skills.

This is the most common kind of CPR certification needed by Healthcare Professionals.  Healthcare professionals include, but are not limited to, the following:  Doctors, Nurses, Emergency Medical Technicians, Certified Nurse Assistants, Medical Assistants, Physician Assistants, Respiratory Therapists, Phlebotomy Technicians, Electrocardiogram Technicians, or any other ancillary healthcare practitioners who work in a clinical setting or hospital.
