Individual Skills Checks
(after completing an online essentials course)

To become AHA certified in a particular discipline or multiple disciplines, you must first complete an online ‘AHA Essentials’ course, which can be purchased through our training center. After successfully completing the online course, you’ll be eligible to schedule the in-person skills check.
