Hi Sean. Thank you for your comment and for allowing me the opportunity to explain how CPR certification works in the United States. You are correct in saying that ProCPR is not the American Heart Association. Of course we are not the AHA, nor would we ever claim to be the AHA. However, we most certainly are AHA compliant. You see, the American Heart Association has the prestigious role as the American representative to the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). This means it is the duty of the American Heart to attend the committee meetings and communicate the recommendations for basic life support to the American public. To say that a training curriculum is "AHA compliant" simply means that the training follows these international guidelines.
However, regardless of whether or not a training company is AHA compliant, follows the guidelines, etc., it is still up to the discretion of your employer to accept or deny a particular brand of certification. This says nothing about the quality of the training and whether or not it is compliant. It simply means your company has a policy in place to accept only AHA, for example. In these cases, we offer to do everything in our power to reason with your employer and attempt to have your ProCPR certificate be accepted. In the end, it is their choice, and we will unconditionally refund your money when this occurs.
I am sorry if you feel this is a scam. We really are trying to make your life a little easier.
