2017 American Heart Association Book Policy

Renewal AHA ACLS
The American Heart Association requires all students to bring the proper book to their training class. This is the same policy across the United States and in the Bay Area. If you find a company that says this is not true, please fill out this form. This book policy is not written by Safety Training Seminars, but official American Heart Association rules which we must follow to maintain our license.

Where should I buy the book?
You can purchase the book from us on the day of the class. Or you can loan a book from a friend or coworker and bring with you to class. You could also buy a book online, but be careful. We have students who buy books on Amazon or Ebay which are the outdated versions and not accepted. If you buy a book online, you should factor in the shipping costs & taxes, which sometimes can add an extra $10-$15 to the price of the book.

FAQ: 

I am taking a Heartcode eLearning class. Do I need to bring in a book?
No. If you are taking a Heartcode eLearning course, you do not need to bring in a book to class, since your eLearning course acts as your book that can be viewed for two years.

I am with UCSF and my department is paying for the class. Do I need to bring in a book?
Yes. You can check out the book from the Mission Bay or Parnassus Library. If you do not bring the book to class, you must buy the book and UCSF will not reimburse.

I am taking the class with my wife. Do we both need to buy a book?
Yes. The American Heart Association does not allow people to share a book during their classes.

If you have any questions about The American Heart Association Book Policy, please call us at 415-437-1600.
