The Western States Affiliate is committed to empowering our volunteers with knowledge about the American Heart Association.

We have developed a series of six online training modules.  Each one contains a high overview of the assigned area, giving the listener a better idea as to the work our organization does and how we function.  The trainings range from six to ten minutes, depending on which one is selected.  Each training module is independent of the others, though we recommend that they be viewed in order.
