American Heart Association Certification Courses


CCE is recognized as an American Heart Association (AHA) Authorized Training Center. Sacramento State is the first campus in the CSU system to earn this approval, allowing us to offer AHA classes on a regular basis.


  • The AHA serves as the gold standard in life support training in the allied healthcare field
  • Learn basic life support, CPR and AED skills
  • Receive a course completion card valid for 2 years, or become re-certified as a healthcare provider


Our AHA courses are open to the public and the emergency medical service workforce. Whether you need to meet job, regulatory or other requirements, these classes provide certification and re-certification through the AHA.


Basic Life Support, Heartsaver CPR AED, and Heartsaver CPR AED First Aid classes are offered on a monthly basis at Napa Hall.  Each course can be completed in one day.
