On some NOLS Wilderness Medicine courses, Idaho Rescue Training is able to offer the opportunity for students to receive their AHA HeartSaver CPR Certification.

Other organizations may register you for an AHA HeartSaver CPR, First Aid, or Heartcode BLS Course. 

To complete the AHA Certification, students will need to:

1) Pay the Idaho Rescue Training testing and certification fee online or be registered by your organization for the class.

  • A URL will be provided by Idaho Rescue Training 7-10 days before the class to access the online module

2) Complete the online module with the American Heart Association

  • You will receive an email with your URL for the course from the American Heart Association.

  • Complete the optional Child & Infant sections prior to completing the course


    • If you complete the course without completing the Child & Infant sections, please call the AHA to have your course reopened at (888) 242-8883.  Certificates are required to have these listed for this class.​
  • Complete the course survey at the end to view your course completion certificate.

  • Do not use Apple Safari, it is not always compatible with the AHA Website.

4) Complete skills testing at the end of Day 1 of your course, which will take 30-45 minutes.

5) Your certification card will be emailed to you by the AHA within 7 days of the course and is valid for 2 years.  If you do not find that email, you may visit to claim your certification card using the email that you provided.
