Become an AHA Training Site

National Institute for Healthcare Education (NIHE) is one of American Heart Association's top National Training Centers for ACLS, BLS, PALS, and Heartsaver.  If you are looking for an AHA Training Center with which to affiliate so that you can offer AHA courses at your location we may be your best option.  Operating in all 50 states we allow the Training Sites that affiliate with us to offer BLS, ACLS, and PALS at their locations based on their needs.  

NIHE is now offering Training Site Development Conferences around the country.  Learn how to get started, grow your community footprint and blessing, and rub shoulders with some of the top AHA Training Center and Training Site Coordinators in the country.  Go to Training Site Conferences to see the Agenda and check out the Dates and Locations of these fabulous conferences.

Get your AHA course completion cards before you teach the course so you can give them to your students the day of the course.  NIHE allows all of their Training Sites who are in good standing to get AHA course completion cards prior to the course.  No more waiting days or weeks for your students to get their course completion cards!  Roster submission is simple and done online using either Enrollware or TCM, whichever is your preference.

NIHE will work hard to help you grow your Training Site & expand your community footprint & blessing.   Unlike many other AHA Training Centers we do not see the our Training Sites as competition, we see them as our partners.  When they grow and expand their community footprint, NIHE grows too.  We have the resources to do the required AHA oversight of our Training Sites and a burning desire to help our Training Sites grow and train more people in how to save lives.  Our Program Director will work with you to grow your Training Site.  She has written an excellent manual on starting and operating a Training Site.  Please go to How to Start a Safety Training Center  for the information on how to get this step by step manual.  Also, NIHE is now offering around the country Training Site Conferences to give you all the tools you need to start and grow and top-notch AHA Training Site.

We expect all of our Training Sites to comply with all AHA rules and regulations including but not limited to:  instructor and course monitoring, site inspection, and  following the every student must have an AHA student manual at the class rule.
