All classes in the regular, open-enrollment schedule are taught in Spanish. If you need a private class in English, we can help you.

Private Class in English

Private classes can be taught in English at no extra cost. We do require a minimum of six participants.

A private class can be scheduled at a mutually convenient time and can even be taught at your own facility, again, at no extra cost.

An alternative to a private class is to do the theory online, in English.

Hybrid eLearning

The American Heart Association’s eLearning system gives you the opportunity to complete the theory (Part 1) online for its Heartsaver, BLS, ACLS and/or PALS courses. Once finished, you then come to the training center to complete the skills session. The skill session consists of practice and testing.

The online theory component is in English.

Because the skills session takes considerably less time, we can schedule it at a mutually convenient time throughout the week. Also, because they are scheduled upon request, they are usually not listed in our website’s calendar until somebody requests it.

To request a skills session, please complete first the online portion at Once completed, email us a copy of the certificate you get once you complete Part 1.

Still Want to Try the Live Class in Spanish?

No problem. Let our instructors know you need the written test in English.
