AHA authorized TRAINING SITE

AHA Authorized Training Site

All AHA courses offered by the Northern Kentucky University Center for Simulation Education utilize a hybrid learning model. Upon registration, learners will be provided with instructions on how to obtain a key code for an online module through the American Heart Association. Learners will also attend a skills testing class where they will be assessed on technical and non-technical skills through objective feedback devices. Skills testing classes are offered at the Northern Kentucky University Center for Simulation Education.
