Heartcode Course Preparation

HeartCode

DESCRIPTION

Heartcode (formerly known as Skills Sessions) is an online portion of a blended-learning format which is provided by the American Heart Association in two (2) parts.   Heartcode is available for BLS, ACLS and PALS, however currently there are limited access for ACLS and PALS Heartcode prior to 2017.  Participants purchase online training (Part One) through AHA by acquiring an Access Code directly from AHA; complete the online program which includes eSimulations and other interactive activities; and allows students to choose between in-facility and pre-hospital tracks to best meet their learning needs.  The online portion of this course will be completed at your pace, but can take a minimum of three (3) hours to finish.  Upon completion of Part One of this online training, you will be REQUIRED to submit a “Certificate of Completion” provided by the American Heart Association prior to performing hands-on skills before an AHA instructor.

Once students pass the included exam at the end of the online portion, they participate in a classroom-based training session featuring discussion, skills practice, and testing. Successful completion of both the online and classroom portions, including skills practice and testing with a certified American Heart Association Instructor, qualifies students for a provider course card.

This is a 1.5 hour course which includes instructor demonstrations, videos and hands-on skills.

Who Should Take This Course

1.      Healthcare provider and clinical staff (physicians, nurses, physician assistants, etc.) who has proficient hands-on skills and a current healthcare provider card in Basic Life Support or Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
