Provider Update or Renewal Procedure
“The recommended update or renewal interval for all AHA courses is 2 years. Providers who intend to take an update course must show a valid provider card to enroll in an update or renewal course.
At the discretion of the TCC, course director, or lead instructor, exceptions may be allowed. The TCC has the final authority and responsibility for allowing a student to take an update course if he or she does not have a current AHA Provider card.
Students who present an expired provider card or do not possess a provider card may be allowed to take an update course but will not be given the option of remediation. These students will need to complete the entire provider course if they cannot successfully meet the course completion requirements when tested“.
