Multinational Programs

Updated:Feb 25,2014

Many of the programs we've created, tested and refined over the years have become integral parts of
American corporate culture.  While specific aspects of some programs may have a uniquely American slant,
most of the strategies and tactics can be easily modified and adapted for international use.  Here are some
examples of American Heart Association resources that have global applications.

Multinational Programs

Our CPR & First Aid training classes teach cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillation (AED) and First Aid skills to more than 12 million people each year. In addition to developing resuscitation programs for hospitals and emergency responders, the American Heart Association has long served as the leading U.S. resource for workplace ECC, CPR and AED training.

In recent years, the American Heart Association has expanded its training network to share lifesaving ECC expertise worldwide. Through agreements with a variety of national heart foundations, health ministries and other organizations, we now have more than 450 international training centers (ITC) in over 140 countries. Our training materials have been localized and translated into 10 languages.

Corporate Training course options include CPR, AED, First Aid and combination courses. Group classes with instructors and training videos can take place at your workplace or offsite in areas served by our international centers. Online instruction is also available in CPR, AED and First Aid.

For a highly efficient and flexible alternative to teaching lifesaving skills to your workforce, we offer Family & Friends CPR Anytime®. The Family & Friends CPR Anytime kit provides self-directed CPR instruction in about 20 minutes and can be passed from employee to employee.
