If you are not a healthcare professional, Heartsaver CPR AED is probably best for you. This class can also be combined with First Aid, if needed. Public safety and medical professionals usually need to complete a Basic Life Support (BLS) course. Check with your employer or credentialing agency if you are unsure of which certification you need.
Yes, we do! First Aid is often needed in the fields of construction, manufacturing, and utilities. We will teach you how to respond to various situations including medical, injury, and environmental emergencies. This class can also be combined with CPR and AED training. The American Heart Association’s First Aid Course satisfies training requirements for First Aid per the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The link below provides information pertaining to OSHA related requirements in the workplace:
Compliance with safety regulations and implementation of safety program may allow for credits/debits on worker’s compensation premiums. This is no guarantee with every company and policy, as each is different.
The Pediatric First Aid CPR AED course would best suit the provider’s needs by fulfilling regulatory requirements required for child care workers in all 50 states. This course has an optional adult module. The Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED is also acceptable and would require completion of adult and pediatric modules. Check with your employer if you are unsure of which certification you need.
Pediatric First Aid CPR AED class is a class that is most appropriate for pediatrics! The focus of this class is providing care to children and infants. Adult emergency care is not covered in this course. If you wanted all ages taught, the full Heartsaver CPR AED First Aid course would be best.
Yes, our Bloodborne Pathogens training meets OSHA requirements when paired with site specific instruction. The Heartsaver First Aid class includes a bloodborne pathogens section that also covers this requirement. If you are taking Heartsaver First Aid or Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED, you do not have to take a separate bloodborne pathogens course.
We offer Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED, Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid CPR AED, & Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens in Spanish. This class is designed for people who are interested in learning CPR for their personal knowledge or perhaps to meet a job requirement. For those wanting basic training (non-certification), we offer Family & Friends CPR, which covers adult, child, and infant CPR, AED, and choking.
Though both ACLS and PALS courses review BLS skills, it is expected that the students are already proficient in BLS skills. You will not receive a separate BLS card in addition to the certification card for the course completed.
A current BLS course completion card is not required as a prerequisite for ACLS or PALS, however, you are required to show competency of BLS skills within the ACLS and PALS course.
HeartCode Classes: Blended eLearning with a Skills Session
The AHA offers eLearning courses called HeartCode that require you to participate in an interactive online portion and perform HeartCode Skills Session. This teaching method is also known as hybrid or blended learning. MedUltra Learning can help you find to HeartCode you need and can schedule your skills session.
HeartCode are divided into three parts which as all required in order to receive your certification card:
Part 1 – The online portion taken through the AHA which includes an exam and will produce a Certificate of Completion (Required before proceeding with Parts 2 & 3)
Part 2- Hands-on skill practice with an AHA Instructor
Part 3- A skills test with an AHA Instructor
Most employers require a certification upon completion of the CPR course you are taking. CPR courses taken 100% online are likely not compliant because of the lack of hands-on practice. AHA HeartCode CPR courses meet most employer requirement because of the blended training and requiring in-person hands-on practice after completion of the hybrid course. Make sure your employer allows hybrid learning as some require in-class training only.

Absolutely! We understand hectic lifestyles and work schedules. In addition to courses being offered during daytime hours, we also can provide them at night and on weekends.
Provider Manuals (student workbooks) are required for all American Heart Association Courses, not just for AHA courses provided by MedUltra Learning. It is also against the AHA policy for us to loan the manuals to the student for the duration of the course. We aim to be compliant with the AHA’s policies by allowing students to prepare for class, have a resource during the class, and allow you to review afterwards. After completion of the course, you will have a book to review the content from the course and freshen up on your life-saving skills until you are due for renewal. If the book is in-date at the time of your renewal, you can save money & use the same book!
AHA provider manuals are sold by authorized distributors. You can also find used books online, however, we strongly suggest that you verify the book is current. We also accept eBooks, which can be loaded onto your tablet or computer.
The AHA has no minimum age requirement on learning CPR. Children as young as nine years old have been found to learn and retain content from CPR class, however, performing quality CPR is determined more on body strength rather than the age of the student.
Our courses require hands-on practice sessions to perform skills. We suggest wearing something comfortable and loose. You will be practicing skills that require kneeling, bending, standing, and lifting. If you have any physical conditions that might prevent these activities, please tell one of the instructors. The instructor may be able to adjust the equipment to accommodate you.
