Learning Alliance Becomes An American Heart Association Test Center

For Immediate Release Tampa, Florida —May 10, 2022 

Learning Alliance Corporation (LAC) announces that its facilities are now an approved testing center for the American Heart Association (AHA). The AHA, a national, non-profit organization, dedicates its efforts to the reduction of death and disability from cardiovascular diseases including heart diseases and stroke.

“As an AHA Testing Center, we can provide our students with CPR, First Aid and Bloodborne Pathogens certifications from one of the best health organizations in America. Our instructors will also be trained at the level of an HCP (Health Care Provider). A certification in Basic Life Support gives our instructors added knowledge and the ability to lead AHA Heartsaver, 1st Aid, CPR, and AED classes. A BLS certification for our instructors is the first step in progressing BLS Instructor Certification. Now that I am an official Test Center Faculty (TCF), AHA has recognized our facility as a Testing Center.”, said Salvador Hernandez Jr., Lead Instructor/Program Manager at LAC.

With LAC instructors taking part in this training, new students are trained in and receive AHA Heartsaver 1st Aid CPR AED, and Blood Borne Pathogen Certifications.

“We want to add value to our programs so that our students can get to work after graduation. Our AHA approval is a stepping-stone towards that goal, and we are looking forward to providing this training to our students,” said Fred Arnold, Executive Director at LAC.

Being named a Testing Center for AHA opens a lot of opportunities and allows us to expand the quality of education trainers and students receive at our institution.
