The BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Course provides a flexible alternative to classroom-based training. 

Part 1 is web-based and accessible 24 hours a day. Through case-based scenarios, interactive activities and videos, this course teaches the concepts of both single-rescuer and team basic life support. 

Upon successful completion of Part 1, students receive a certificate that allows them entrance to a skills practice and testing session. For full course completion, Part 1 must be paired with a hands-on skills practice and testing session (Parts 2 and 3) with an AHA BLS Instructor.

HeartCode® ACLS Part 1 is an online 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. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning.

You will complete the online HeartCode ACLS training.  Upon completion, you will present to the training site for testing of skills.

**Unprepared or inexperienced students may require additional time to complete HeartCode ACLS Part 1. To be successful in any ACLS course, students should be able to identify ECG rhythms and should know pharmacology specific to cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiopulmonary emergencies before beginning the course. It is strongly recommended that students review the ACLS course materials contained within the program and complete the Precourse Self-Assessment prior to attempting the patient cases.  If you do not, please take one of our ECG/Pharmacology courses or contact us at 808-440-8988 for details.
