American Heart Association Basic Life Support HeartCode Course

Course Description

The Online Basic Life Support CPR Course allows the user to complete the entire course on the computer. This course recognizes that healthcare providers have knowledge and skills acquired from years of patient care and prior CPR training. The greatest challenge in retraining healthcare providers lies not in skills acquisition but in the cognitive component of memorizing the sequence of steps for multiple scenarios, which reinforces rapid recall of the sequences during emergency situations. Once you have been enrolled into the course, you have 1 year to complete everything. If you do not complete it within the year, you have to re-enroll and pay the $60 again.


This course is designed specifically for healthcare providers such as physicians, nurses, EMTs, PAs, etc.
