COVID19 Updates

    UPDATE: Per Maricopa County guidelines, a face mask must be worn for all in-person training.

    We at Heart Savers understand the concerns surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19. We also understand the importance of staying current on your certificates to continue working. To serve your training needs, all Heart Savers’ classes will continue to run as scheduled. Updates and cancellations will be notified via email, text messages, and phone calls.

    During this time we will offer students who feel uncomfortable attending class the option to reschedule free of charge. Most courses offer a hybrid option. This two part alternative would consist of video based learning completed online from any location with internet and a hands on skills check with an instructor and a small group of participants. Additional fees may apply. Please reach out to our office at 480-998-5193 with any questions or to reschedule.

    Note from the AHA fro Provider Cards: Interim Guidance on Extensions for AHA Provider Cards during COVID-19 Outbreak, March 13, 2020

    –The AHA recommends that employers and regulatory bodies consider extending recognition of an AHA Provider Card beyond its renewal date, for up to 60 days. However, please know that it is ultimately up to the discretion of employers and regulatory bodies who require current AHA Provider Cards to consider allowing extensions during this time.
    –The AHA recommends considering extensions of up to 60 days, but this recommendation could be extended based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat.
