We are open on a limited basis at this time. The American Heart Association provided 120-day extensions for cards that expire March-June 2020. We have added some AHA renewal courses for the immediate future and will continue to add more as staffing/space allows.

Important Notes:

  • We must give registration priority to those who expired first.
  • First-time students/providers or those who lapsed prior to March 2020 will need to take the full provider classes, not renewals.

You will need to show your expired AHA card for admission to class and follow this extension schedule:

  • March/April expirations = June/July classes
  • May/June expirations = August/September classes
  • July expiration dates =
    Ardent employees should enroll in September/October unless given express permission from the Education Center
