AHA Certified? Approved? Accredited?

Are you approved by the American Heart Association or the Red Cross?

Thank you for your interest in ProTrainings' accredited ( CPR/ACLS/PALS) certification program. This question requires a little further explanation of how it works-

We, ProTrainings, are a private training organization that issues our own certification cards.  We follow the most recent ECC/ILCOR and AHA guidelines.

Other CPR companies, such as American Heart Association (AHA) or the Red Cross, do not have the ability to certify, approve, or give accreditation for our courses and educational process. This means that ProTrainings is the sole provider of its own curriculum.

Since our curriculum follows the latest and most up to date standards, our cards will state that you passed the exam according to the latest American Heart Association guidelines and will have our ProTrainings’ logo on it, simply because we are the certifying agency, not the AHA or the Red Cross.


Accreditation and Acceptances

Please feel free to visit this link to learn more about our accreditation and acceptances, beyond our national acceptance.  You can learn more about your state board and/or profession to find out more about your specific CPR requirements.  

Also, we encourage you to share this introduction letter for your employer in efforts of asking them their CPR guidelines for your employment.

Required to have a hands-on skill component?

Each of our CPR courses is available as either 100% online certification (cognitive only), or as an accredited Blended certification, which includes a practical hands-on skills assessment with one of our certified instructors. 

You can do this in the comfort of your own home through an instructor-led, live face-to-face video conference.  The Blended Course includes an additional fee for the skills assessment and single-use manikin (SUMO kit) mailed to your home.  For more information, go to www.blendedcpr.com.  Or, if you’re willing to travel and would prefer to meet with a local evaluator in your area, we offer that option as well. Prices and availability will vary per Evaluator. 


30-Day Money-Back Guarantee

While we do have a 99% acceptance rating, there are rare occasions that your employer requires a specific logo or company on the certification that is not ProTrainings. For those instances, we do offer an easy 30-day money-back guarantee for the online cognitive certification. 

To request a refund simply contact us by email, phone, or live chat. You may be asked for:

  • The name on your certification and/or account
  • The reason you are requesting a refund
  • Confirmation of your original payment method
