2021 American Heart Association Book Policy

Bay Area BLS Classes


The American Heart Association requires all students to bring the proper book to their training class. This is the same policy across the United States and in the Bay Area. This book policy is not written by Safety Training Seminars, but it is the official American Heart Association rules which we must follow to maintain our license. The book is not used much during class. It is mostly used as a reference after your course.

Where should I buy the book?
You can purchase the book from us when you register for a class. Or you can loan a book from a friend or coworker and bring with you to class. You could also buy a book online, but be careful. We have students who buy books on Amazon or Ebay which are the outdated versions and not accepted. If you buy a book online, you should factor in the shipping costs & taxes, which sometimes can add an extra $10-$15 to the price of the book. If you purchase the book from us, you will pick it up on the day of the class. We do not ship it.

FAQ: 

I am taking a Heartcode eLearning class. Do I need to bring in a book?
No. If you are taking a Heartcode eLearning course, you do not need to bring in a book to class, since your eLearning course acts as your book that can be viewed for two years.

I am taking the class with my wife. Do we both need to buy a book?
Yes. The American Heart Association does not allow people to share a book during their classes.
