Action Medical Classes: Continuing Education unites (CEUs) are available through Action Medical that will count towards state and national certification. For a list of continuing education courses and credit hours please go to our course page or calendar. [/accordion-item] [accordion-item title=”How do I retrieve my eCard”]

Upon completion of the class you will receive an email at the email address you have provided from ecards@heart.org with a link to claim your eCard.

Full instructions can be found at eCard Instructions.

AHA courses: A current book is required for each student in BLS, but IS NOT included in the course price as most affiliation contracts do not pay for the book. If you are renewing your class you may already have the current book. Books are available for purchase through the Action Education’s website during the class registration process and will be provided for each student upon receipt of book payment.
