"The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in all AHA courses and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course materials, do not represent income to the AHA."

NCEMS now offers two methods to complete your desired AHA CPR and or First Aid certifications. You can complete the classroom portion online in your own home at your convenience and then complete the hands-on portion with our instructors at NCEMS, or you can come in for a traditional in-person course. With the popularity of the online option we no longer have a set schedule for courses, we can offer them as you need and our schedule

allows. Call us today at 360-686-3271 for more information or to schedule your course.
