Heartcode Courses
Blended Learning
Offered 3 Ways 

Basic Life Support (BLS)
Heartcode BLS

HeartCode BLS uses a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities to teach students BLS knowledge and skills.
After completing the online portion, students attend a structured BLS Hands-On Session with an AHA Instructor. This session focuses on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols, and skills testing. Where available, students may also complete the hands-on session with a voice-assisted manikin (VAM).
HeartCode BLS is for healthcare professionals seeking an alternative method for completing an initial or renewal BLS Course.

Includes in-facility and prehospital tracks; student chooses his/her track before starting the HeartCode BLS Online Portion
Enhanced learning experience through eSimulations, life-like animations, video scenarios, and knowledge checks
Course Content
New science and education from the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC
The components of high-quality CPR for adults, children, and infants
The AHA Chain of Survival for prehospital and in-facility providers
Important early use of an AED
Effective ventilation's using a barrier device
Importance of teams in multi-rescuer resuscitation and performance as an effective team member during multi rescuer CPR
Relief of foreign-body airway obstruction (choking) for adults and infants, a learning experience through eSimulations, life-like animations, video scenarios, and knowledge checks

Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
Heartcode ACLS

Blended Learning (online portion, followed by hands-on skills session) HeartCode ACLS uses a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, team dynamics training, mega code cases, and interactive activities to teach students ACLS knowledge and skills.

HeartCode ACLS is the AHA’s ACLS blended learning delivery method. Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner, followed by a hands-on skills session.

Complete the online portion + hands-on skills session with an AHA Instructor, or with a Simulation Station or voice-assisted manikin (VAM)

The online portion of HeartCode ACLS can be completed in 6.5 to 7 hours.

Time to complete the hands-on skills session is approximately 5 hours using the full agenda, and approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes using the update course agenda.

To enter the course, students must complete the ACLS Pre-course Self-Assessment.
Students are then presented with an enhanced learning experience through eSimulations, life-like animations, video scenarios, and knowledge checks.
Cases may be repeated as many times as necessary to pass. Upon successful completion of all the patient cases, students must pass the multiple-choice exam with a minimum score of 84%.
Web-based, self-paced eSimulation instructional program for ACLS cognitive training.
Students apply knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development
Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning.

Pediatric Advanced Cardiac Life Support (PALS)
Heartcode PALS


HeartCode PALS is an online comprehensive eLearning program that uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students apply their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development.

Students who successfully complete the online portion of the course receive a certificate granting them access to a PALS Hands-on Skills Session with an AHA PALS Instructor, or with a voice-assisted manikin (VAM) or Simulation Station. Students must successfully complete both the online portion and the hands-on skills session to receive a PALS Provider course completion card.

Complete the online portion + hands-on skills session with an AHA Instructor, or with a VAM or Simulation Station

Online Portion: approximately 6-9 hours depending on the level of knowledge and clinical experience of the student.

Students who successfully complete the PALS Course will receive a PALS Provider course completion card, valid for two years:

HeartCode PALS Online Portion. Upon successful completion of the online portion, including the written exam, students receive a certificate of completion, which must be presented for the hands-on skills session with an AHA PALS Instructor, or with a voice-assisted manikin (VAM) or Simulation Station.

Hands-on skills session with an AHA PALS Instructor, or with a VAM or Simulation Station.

To enter the course, students must complete the PALS Precourse Self-Assessment. Students are then presented with 12 In-hospital patient cases and a team dynamics lesson. Cases may be repeated as many times as necessary to pass. Upon successful completion of all the patient cases, students must pass the multiple-choice exam with a minimum score of 84%.

Web-based, self-paced eSimulation instructional program for PALS cognitive training
Students apply knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development
Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning.

Access to the PALS Provider Manual, the 2015 Handbook of ECC, and 2015 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC.

Access to all information in the course for two years following activation of the course
