AHA Blended Learning courses combine the flexibility of online training with in person skills practice and testing.

HeartCode® ACLS Part 1

A Web-based, self-paced instructional 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. After completing the cognitive portion of the course, students practice and test their skills with an AHA Instructor or on a voice-assisted manikin (VAM) system.

100% classroom training means students are with an AHA instructor for their entire learning experience.
