A Veteran Owned Authorized American Heart Association Provider of CPR and ECC courses.
Unfortunately, many have been victims of CPR Certifying Fraudulent activity; both online and in person.
So most definitely you want to Protect yourself from Fraudulent Providers and Fake CPR ACLS & PALS cards.
Here are a couple of things the wants you to be aware of:
1) New Cards look like the ones below
With the new updates from the American Heart Association comes a new looking card with many security features. The card has a blue bar (Red for ACLS, Purple for PALS) at the top. All cards issued by the American Heart Association will look exactly like the cards shown below, anything else is fraudulent.
2) If Officially AHA - Look for the Term: "Authorized Provider" - Not "Compliant",
"Approved", or "Certified"
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 and are usually fake websites with fake certifications.
3) No Certifications/Re-Certifications 100% Online - All Students Must See a Live Instructor to
The American Heart Association (AHA) does not give "Instant" anything or "Instant" wallet cards online. These websites are fake. All cards must be issued by an authorized training center of the American Heart Association. All online courses must be taken via the AHA Online portal at http://www.onlineaha.org, and afterwards will have to take the skills class portion in person via an American Heart Association authorized provider to recieve their official certification.
The American Heart Association's Authorized Training Centers will not send you an electronic course completion card that you fill in online. If you receive one of these, please report it to the AHA right away, along with any information you have about where it came from. If you suspect fraudulent CPR/ACLS/PALS certifications related to the American Heart Association please contact the AHA at 1-800-242-8721 or email email@example.com.
