Hands-On Portion: Skills Sessions for In-Person Practice and Testing
For American Heart Association and American Safety Health Institute courses that include psychomotor skills such as CPR; students must complete an in-person skills practice and testing session to obtain a course completion card. With AHA & ASHI Blended Learning; the skills practice and skills test are taken together during a Hands-on Skills Session after the student completes the eLearning portion online.
Skills Sessions are conducted by authorized ASHI or AHA Instructors, or, in the case of HeartCode® courses, students can conduct the in-person skills practice and testing on a voice-assisted Manikin (VAM). The VAM serves as the Instructor and precisely measures the learner’s proper execution of the necessary psychomotor skills.
Please bring a copy of your CPR online completed eLearning course, for in-person hands only skills.
The hands on skills will take 1-2 hours to complete.
See calendar for hands on skills only or call, email the SAVE A LIFE office.
The hands on skills only will also be completed in each EMR course. Check the dates on the calendar for day 1 of these courses.
