AHA HeartCode®

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.

HeartCode BLS, ACLS, and PALS Courses provide healthcare organizations with a flexible and efficient method for training large numbers of students across different care settings and varied locations. 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.

“The blended learning format has significantly increased the confidence level of our staff in taking the resuscitation educational principles and applying them in practice.”
