Mission and Goals

The American Heart Association's mission is to reduce disability and death from cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Steps toward achieving this goal include:

  1. Improving the chain of survival and acute care treatment
  2. Enhancing prevention and disease management
  3. Generating the resources to achieve the goal by increasing the number of instructors, providers, revenue, partnerships, training materials, and programs.

Our Training Center supports this mission and purpose through the provision of quality AHA classes to healthcare professionals and the community and by educating and informing the AHA Instructors on new skills or AHA programs.

The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in all AHA courses and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA.  Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of the fees needed for AHA course materials, do not represent income to the AHA.
