CPR ONLINE Course Information

There are only 10 student slots available for each 2-hour Check-Off Session, so if your desired session does not allow you to register, please choose a different session. 

If you already signed up Online for a Check-Off Session and were not able to attend due to Covid-19 restrictions, please email Dr. Amy Rogers (arogers@suscc.edu) so she can add you to a session (so you don’t have to pay and register again). 

If you are a current Southern Union Health Science student or an incoming Health Science student that needs a CPR Card renewal or this is your first time obtaining a CPR Card (it is the same process for both), you need to follow the instructions below: 

Part 1 – Heartcode – BLS - Register Online through American Heart Association 

• Go to www.onlineaha.org to register. 

• Go to “Find a Course” and search for BLS – Basic Life Support in the drop-down menu. 

• You will put “1” in the quantity box to place “Heartcode BLS” in your cart ($28.50). 

• DO NOT use the Course Finder Wizard on this page…………it will only confuse you. 

• You will receive an e-book, watch a video, answer questions about the video and then complete a 25- question test. 

• Once you have completed the entire Online Portion, print the Online Part 1 Certificate of Completion. You must bring this Certificate of Completion to your Check-Off Session.
