HeartCode BLS Skills Session



HeartCode BLS Online Part 1 has become a popular way to complete a BLS course for the first time, especially during the COVID19 Pandemic. However AHA HeartCode BLS is a great course format choice for student's looking to renew their AHA eCard, making the BLS provider course completion card valid for two years once again. ACLS EDU has the most availability nationwide for BLS Skills Check Offs, healthcare professionals love them because they are stress free. ACLS EDU even plans to roll out HeartCode BLS Complete, where students can experience a self-service part 2 hands-on skills session. In which students completing the online portion, will then book a time to perform part 2 and 3 on the Automated RQI Station. This fully automated RQI station, even issues the BLS for Healthcare Provider eCard automatically.  Students that prefer to stick with AHA Instructor-Led skills sessions, can easily find a class anywhere in the United States. The American Heart Association Skills Sessions with an AHA BLS Instructor, may be some of the easiest knowledge checks you have done. This is because ACLS EDU is focused on convenience only, as well as quality and compliance. Blended Learning should be fast, easy and fun! The development of automated self-service product and service options is the future and ACLS EDU intends to bring it to the table.


BLS HeartCode Skills Session is geared towards not just healthcare professionals, but the general public in positions of high risk. Students begin with completing HeartCode BLS Online Part 1 through the AHA eLearning Website, upon completing the Online Portion. Students are then required to complete parts 2 and 3, which consist of the skills session. Then testing and issuance of the official AHA BLS Provider eCard, students that attend the skills session but do not participate in the hands-on portion. May still be eligible for the AHA BLS Advisor eCard, make sure to check with your employer or licensor in regards to which eCard will meet your needs. Students must purchase the current 2020 BLS Provider Course Manual or eBook, as required by the American Heart Association. This textbook or eBook can be used during testing, so it is to your advantage to purchase it. American Heart Association BLS for Healthcare Providers Skills Sessions, must be registered for through the ACLS EDU website. The day of the course instructors will contact students not in attendance by phone, email and text. Attendance and roll call roughly happens 15 to 30 minutes before the start time. If multiple students are in attendance of a skills session, each student will have access to their own equipment and materials. Then in about 30-45 minutes with one of our veteran instructors or RQI stations and you're on the way.

Additional Information

AHA BLS and CPR Blended Learning seems to be holding its position, students still prefer to get a little of both types of learning under their belt. The other reason is that the Online Part 1 of the HeartCode BLS Online can be completed even from a smartphone, however HeartCode Part 2 Skills Session still requires the use of CPR equipment. Students that also prefer a in the flesh instructor to review anything that was missed online, is another reason to take the HeartCode BLS Skills Session through ACLS EDU. The Instructor can even assist students that have completed the hands-on portion, claiming or printing out their official BLS Provider eCard right at the class. ACLS EDU provides each student with a 2 pocket folder containing the required class skills sheets, AHA fee disclaimer, BLS test answer sheet and more. Basically everyone passes our course, we have easy test taking and plenty of help with remediation. The COVID19 event was something no one was prepared for and a-lot of BLS Training Sites and Centers have had to close down. ACLS EDU is part of a chain of companies such as CPR Suppliers and Jurman Medical, thus keeping doors open to all and supporting the AHA Instructor Network greatly.
