Book Details:  We include the New AHA BLS Text Book with this New course for you to take home!   AHA made the new text book mandatory and old version of the text book become invalid - Anywhere you go!  So now you can rightfully ask, "Hey are you guys giving me the new textbook or what?  If not, "What's up with that?" to who ever teaches your BLS class out there.

What all this means to you the consumer:  Books change, when rules for doing CPR changes.  Wherever you go for your BLS class, if they are not giving you the Newly Released Brand Spanking New Book,...Without the brand new book in your hand;  Pretty much what ever you hear from people that teach your class becomes a lame duck, cheapskate, hide behind mom's business type of excuse not to give you a book, so they don't have worry about spending a dime on inventory.  We think you deserve better!  We have been carrying the new book since it came out and forking out thousands of bucks in AHA inventory to help everybody out in Hawaii, now we simply give the book to our students to take home.  New book is in short supply locally, mom and pop shops around the corner don't carry it.  Plus, test speaks like the book, so good luck passing the test without the Book.  The book is mandatory, although the cheap sushi man out there may try to convince you otherwise.  Some may even tell you no book is better for you, because makes it fat free, and cheaper for them to teach that way.  Training services industry is full of people trying to feed others cheap crab.  In meeting your job requirements, you can eat cheap sushi and give yourself and your boss tummy ache.  Or you can simply support your local service organization that actually spends what it takes to bring great training to Hawaii Public and take a class from us that comes with the book. 

COURSE DELIVERY:

This particular BLS course you are looking at is taught entirely by a human, using human talent, human ability to teach, while utilizing approved audio visuals and  teaching materials.  Nothing to do online.  All parts of the course is done in our Training Center.  You walk out with a BLS card upon passing all the requirements and tests.  We have taught thousands of BLS classes in Hawaii and made a significant positive impact on people's lives and livelihoods here.  We are academically trained educators with decades of real teaching experience, that's kind a like holding up a big sign and saying:

OUR CLASSES ARE FUN, EFFICIENT & EFFECTIVE.  ENJOY YOUR TRAINING!  DON'T DREAD IT! 

BLS- What it is & What it is not:

BLS knowledge is a pre-requisite for ACLS. In most cases, BLS is the required CPR Certification for Healthcare Facilities, Clinics, Hospitals, Nursing Schools, Medical Residencies and EMT Schools.  Generally intended for physicians, nurses, rad. techs, nursing, med students, dentists, pharmacists, anyone needing certification for Hospital Jobs.  If your job asked for a " First Aid, CPR & AED card," this is NOT it! Check out the First Aid CPR AED Course instead.   BLS does not have First Aid in it, it is a CPR class for Healthcare Providers. This is compliance training, it matters if the person taking the class knows exactly what is required from them.

This is a layman rescuer level CPR class.  Teaches Adult, Child and Infant CPR and how to use an AED (Shock machine).  CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary Ressucitation.  Made to sound all medical and complicated, but it's not rocket science when it comes to doing it.  It is a physical skill.  Our class is about manikin pressing and learning the current standard for doing CPR on an adult, child and infant with the help of kind humans and super high tech human friendly robot manikins, as we utilize AHA educational materials we buy from the Mainland Distributors by the barrel.  Plus you will learn what to do if someone chokes.  Nothing to do online, everything will be done at our school.  You walk out with your CPR AED card as soon as you pass all the requiremens.

No 20 days maximum by the book waiting period on that card.  You get that card before you leave our school. 

We include Adult, Child and Infant CPR without jacking up the price for each section. 
What you pay covers everything.  

Comes with a text book.  We include the book without jacking up the price for the book, and without jacking up the price further by telling you book ships by Pineapple Express for a special fee. No extras!
When you come to take the class with us, your book will be there on the day of the class.

 

This class gets you a Laymen Rescuer Level CPR AED card.  But all this training stuff works best if you know what your job asked you to get:

If your job asked you to get a First Aid CPR AED card, that one is here.

If your job asked for a BLS card (Professional Rescuer Level CPR), that one is here.

 

We run a fun class.  Not the drag out, not the dreaded and not the eyes red from looking at a screen type of compliance training.  Come have fun on your day off and learn cool stuff while meeting the requirements for your job.

Newest and the greatest thing from AHA!  Minimal in class time!  We are the biggest promoters and advertisers of AHA eLearning around on this side of the planet (Check all the search engines and ask your buddies at work).  Another best offering from Fast CPRTM that helps many many people locally, improves the local training market, helping us offer FASTEST in CLASSROOM sessions conducted by humans with these blended learning courses (Because people do chunk of the course at home.  Duh!), thus having us hold a big sign that says:


*Fees for eLearning part of the courses and educational materials always go to AHA.  Thanks for helping us keep buying large piles of great educational materials from the Authorized AHA Distributors.  Help us help everybody and Move Mountains (of educational materials) with kindness.  Glad you like the classes and the human effort it takes to teach them.

How it works:
  This is the most flexible way to get your AHA Healthcare Provider BLS card.  But if you just click, buy and show up, it does not work like that on this one!  You got to do subtantial part of the course ahead of time at home (Should take about an hour.  But where would training services industry be without disclaimers?  Everybody goes at their own speed, stop and start when ever they want through out the online part.  Some like to totally take their time with it when they do it at work.  Some require extra support time before clicking.  In some cases people tell us they got it done in a jiffy, but some folks tell us they had to work on it hours on end.  So times may be different).  After finishing the online part of the course, you come in to do the rest in our office on the appointment date.  Upon passing the tests in our office, you walk out with your BLS card in hand, in about an hour (This is training for physical skills and not an oven timer.  In the real world of training people, everyone's skill is different, so times may vary).  The idea is that you can do the substantial part of the course when ever you want, at home bonding with your computer and even in your pajamas.  Just so our students have this convenience, we spend boo koo resources.  You still get the official AHA BLS card at the end, just like a traditional classroom only BLS Class.  But You Still got to show up to a class and press those manikins to learn that physical skill associated with doing CPR!  

Cost:  $90 Covers all above three parts.  You get your card as soon as you are done with the skills practice and test at our office. 

Easy steps to complete the certification process:

  1. Register for FAST CPR’s American Heart Association BLS eLearning course from the schedule below.  Fee covers the all three portions of the course, including skills testing.

Since AHA gets the money for the course keys, we can not give refunds on AHA eLearning materials.

If you are new to this eLearning thing, have no fear, here is a Tip Sheet. 

Although we can make sure our humans are alive and working to deliver the content when we teach traditional classroom courses, we have no way of telling if your particular computer will do the same in delivering you what you need, so here are the technical requirements for your machine. We are unable to remote troubleshoot computers from our terminals.  Mahalo.

Just a Heads up:  Online portion of the course requires participants to finish significant amount of work at home.  AHA gets the fee for elearning upfront, but we can only give skills training if the individual actually did the online learning all the way through.  If you feel you may be too busy to do the eLearning ahead of time or you feel you might have to quit midway or if you have a jinxed computer, please consider signing up for the regular classroom course instead.  Mahalo.

Support:  If you are having technical issues, you can reach AHA by calling 1-888-242-8883 4:00 am to 1:00 pm Hawaii time, Monday through Friday.  

Consumer Beware:  Other folks also offer this class! In some cases it may take two weeks or longer to get your certification card from them!  So, What is the point of taking a super duper online course if you have to hold your breath for up to 20 days maximum processing time allowed by the rule book, once you are done with the skills testing?  Plus anyone on planet earth can buy the eLearning product from the distributor, jack up the price few times and sell it to you on the intenet without skills training and testing.  In real life it takes local facilities, equipment, resources and human effot to train people.  At FAST CPR we will train you and you will have your card in your hand as soon as you pass the skills testing at our office!  PLUS!  We actually carry this course in inventory, spend thousands of bucks on educational materials and support AHA, where as many other places just give you a link.  Buy it here, regardless substantial chunk of your course fee goes to AHA as eLearning.  Plus as a little local organization, what we do for the entire States Health, Safety and Employment Outlook, is not so shabby either, so big Mahalo from us to you!

Take the class from us everything included with no extra charges for each component, or go to the folks that charge a heck a lot more than us plus give you a $10 upsale on every component of the course.  Or if none of that works, look for someone that still tries to teach with no business overhead and with no educational materials, may be at a park.  Whatevers, as a consumer you decide.  We are just trying to help people and your boss is trying to make sure everyone meets their job requirements, so he/she can sleep better at nights.
