NetLearning Expands Online Course Offerings from the American Heart Association

Clifton Park, NY April 25, 2011 — NetLearning, part of Cengage Learning, and a leading provider of online courses and e-learning software for health care workers and hospital administrators, today announced the expansion of its suite of online courses from the American Heart Association (AHA), the leader in emergency cardiovascular care resources. The available courses will benefit professionals seeking to update their expertise along with individuals looking to simply fine-tune their emergency preparedness skills.  

The courses from AHA are offered online through NetLearning’s learning management system, making it quick and easy to access vital information through the proven and convenient online learning format. Many online courses from AHA use a blended learning approach. Students learn cognitive skills through Web-based, self-paced modules featuring interactive question/answer and video segments to reinforce learning. Students then practice and test the skills they have learned in person with an American Heart Association Instructor.

“We are extremely pleased to offer this newly expanded suite of course offerings from the American Heart Association,” said Will Passano, vice president, NetLearning. “It is imperative that healthcare professionals are knowledgeable of critical topics such as Basic Life Support (BLS), CPR, AED and stroke information. We recognize the importance of this training and continually strive to offer courses that fit with the lives of our customers.
