HeartCode BLS is the AHA’s blended learning delivery method for the BLS Course. HeartCode blended learning delivers quality resuscitation education regardless of where providers are located and gives them more control to complete the course at their own pace. Providers first complete the online portion of HeartCode BLS and then complete a hands-on skills session with an AHA BLS Instructor.
This online course is a convenient alternative to classroom-based PALS training. This course may be used for an initial or renewal course completion card.
Upon successful completion of the online portion, including the course exam, students receive a certificate of completion, which they must print and present for entry into the Instructor-led hands-on session. Students then register for & attend their pre-scheduled classroom teaching session which includes hands-on practice and skills testing. The structured classroom portion takes about 2 hours and requires on-time attendance for the full course. The cost for the in-person portion is separate from the cost of the AHA BLS HeartCode online portion.
Upon successful completion of the online and in-person testing, a BLS Provider course eCard valid for 2 years will be issued.
This course is designed for healthcare professionals and other personnel who need to know how to perform CPR and other basic cardiovascular life support skills in a wide variety of in hospital and pre-hospital settings
