CPR Level Requirement

ABTCC PBT 101 Phlebotomy Practicum (Clinical rotation)

AHA (American Heart Association) CPR Certification Requirement

In order to start the clinical rotation a current CPR certification must be completed. They expire after a 2-year period so check your card if you already have it to see if you need to re-certify (it cannot expire before the end of your clinical rotation date).

It must be the American Heart Association CPR course level - Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers. There are no substitutions due to this being a clinical affiliate contract requirement.

You have to take the class from a certified American Heart Association course instructor so make sure the provider you choose is teaching AHA. If you choose to sign up for one of the A-B Tech AHA CPR classes all of the information is listed below.

Schedule your training class before your clinic start date. Classes with low enrollment are subject to cancelation so plan ahead in case that happens!
