Health Education Solutions is a provider of online courses for health-care professionals and others who want to be prepared for a medical emergency. Online certification and recertification for advanced cardiac life support and pediatric advanced life support courses follow the American Heart Association guidelines and were developed in partnership with Union College.

Offering downloadable guides and mixed media resources, courses allow users to complete training at their pace.
