HeartCode® is a self-directed, comprehensive eLearning program through the American Heart Association that uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. Taking an online HeartCode® class will give you an equivalent AHA certification as if you were taking a traditional in-person course.
HeartCode® courses consist of two parts:
Part 1: The online course, found at: www.onlineaha.org
The online portion consists of videos, eSimulations, multiple-choice exam, and course evaluation.
Part 2: Hands-on skills. HeartCode® courses are not complete until you come in for a skills check-off. After your skills check-off, you will receive your AHA card, valid for two years. We offer skills check-offs for ACLS, BLS, and PALS.
