The CoxHealth Training Center has trained over 250,000 in life support programming.
An American Heart Association (AHA) Training Center (TC) since 1997, you can be sure you are receiving the finest AHA program delivery at the CoxHealth Training Center as several of our instructors have been recognized statewide for training excellence. We are home to several AHA Regional Faculty which are elected at the state level as experts in their area of life support.
We offer a variety of programs from the AHA and the American Academy of Pediatrics. When you are looking to update your professional skills or want to be prepared for an emergency our programs make it easy to stay on top of the latest life saving information.
Many of our programs are offered via two methods:
Classroom-based courses require the student be present in class with an instructor directing the cognitive portions and skills testing. Classroom-based courses teach skills with AHA’s research-proven Practice-While-Watching (PWW) technique. This allows instructors to observe students, provide feedback and guide each student as needed.
Web-based or eLearning courses require the student to complete cognitive skills via web-based, self-paced modules. These courses utilize eSimulation technology which allows students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. The student then practices and completes live skills testing with an AHA Instructor.
