The American Heart Association's BLS course is the foundation for saving lives after cardiac arrest. This class is recommended for healthcare providers. You will learn the skills of high quality cardiopulmonary (CPR) for victims of all ages and will practice delivery of these skills both as a single rescuer and as a member of a team. The skills you learn will enable you to recognize cardiac arrest, activate the emergency response system early, and respond quickly and with confidence.
The BLS Provider Course is for healthcare providers or students that have not taken BLS previous or have expired certifications. Most healthcare employers and schools require this certification for employment or enrollment. The certification is valid for 2 years.
The BLS Renewal class is for healthcare providers or students that have current BLS Provider Certification Cards.
ACLS builds on the foundation of lifesaving basic life support (BLS) skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
The ACLS Provider Course is for students that have not taken ACLS previously or have an expired certification. The course is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. Through didactic instruction and active participation in simulated cases, students will enhance their skills in the recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, and acute arrhythmias.
The ACLS Update Course is for students that hold a current ACLS certification. The course is designed as a refresher for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. Through didactic instruction and active participation in simulated cases, students will enhance their skills in the recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute arrhythmia, stroke, and ACS.
The HeartCode Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) is blended learning that combines self-directed online training with an instructor led skills session. Students first learn the course content online through the American Heart Association. This link will direct you to the on-line portion: https://www.onlineaha.org/courses#2.

The American Heart Association’s PALS Courses are available in instructor led classroom courses and interactive e-simulations. The classroom, Instructor-led courses use a series of videos and simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics. The goal of the PALS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill children.
The PALS Provider Course is for students that have not taken PALS previously or have an expired certification card. Skills taught include recognition and treatment of infants and children at risk for cardiopulmonary arrest; the systematic approach to pediatric assessment; effective respiratory management; defibrillation and synchronized cardioversion; intraosseous access and fluid bolus administration; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.
The PALS Update Course is for students that have current PALS Provider Certification Cards. If the certification is expired, students are required to take the Provider Course. The Update Course is a review of the skills learned in the Provider Course.
The PALS Instructor-Led Skills Session is the classroom portion to complete the American Heart Association's HeartCode® PALS. The Heartcode PALS is an online comprehensive eLearning program that uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. Students apply their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development. After completing the on-line session, students are required to complete the classroom skills session.
