American Heart Association Class Fees

These fees apply to persons who are not employees of UNCH or affiliates. UNCH staff should consult LMS for class fees. Fees do not include the required AHA provider manual. Students must acquire the provider manual with a copyright date of 2011 or later. We have a limited number of provider manuals to loan to students who can pick one up from our facility.

Provider class fees are for the class only. Every student attending an AHA provider class must have a copyright 2010 or later provider textbook for the class. We require students to have the textbook no less than 24 hours prior to class. We have a limited number of books to loan to paid enrollees.

Fees for various class offerings are listed below.
