HeartCode® BLS is the AHA’s blended learning online method for the BLS course. Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner, followed by a hands-on session. 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.
HeartCode® BLS is the eLearning component of BLS blended learning. It uses a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities to teach students BLS knowledge and skills. After completing the eLearning component, students will attend a structured, instructor-led course that focuses on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols, and skills testing. The online portion can be completed in approximately 1 to 2 hours.
Safety NJ LLC offers the skills practice and test portion of the online training. Once completing the skills testing the student will receive their AHA Basic Life Support CPR card. Safety NJ is located in Bloomfield, NJ and training classes can be found at www.safetynj.com
