This course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED. The BLS 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-facility and prehospital settings.

Resuscitation training can be a time and logistics challenge for healthcare organizations, instructors, and students. HeartCode blended learning from the AHA offers options for high-quality resuscitation training that provide more control of time and resources.
HeartCode courses combine online learning with hands-on CPR skills practice to ensure competency. Students complete the online portion of the course at their own pace, anytime and anywhere they have Internet access. Students then attend a hands-on skills session with an AHA Instructor or voice-assisted manikin (VAM), where available, to ensure CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) skills competence.
HeartCode’s lifelike animations and eSimulations allow students to treat patients virtually and receive immediate feedback. HeartCode’s online learning format improves retention* and helps students develop critical thinking skills they can use at the patient’s bedside.
Most importantly, HeartCode delivers high-quality training that prepares students for real resuscitation events and increases their confidence for responding in the most stressful emergency situations.
