About the Course

The American Heart Association HeartCode ACLS Part 1 program has been updated to reflect new science in the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. Key science changes include the new CPR sequence, continued emphasis on high quality CPR, an additional link in the Chain of Survival for Post-Arrest Care..

HeartCode is a self-paced instructional eLearning program that uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students apply their knowledge to real-time decision making and skills development. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning about basic and advanced life support. Successful completion of the full ACLS Course using HeartCode ACLS includes two parts:

Part 1:  HeartCode ACLS Part 1 is an online based cognitive portion, including the video-based cognitive lessons, 10 patient cases, and a 50-question multiple choice exam (must pass with score of 84% or better). When the student has completed Part 1, they will contact us for an appointment to complete Part 2.

Part 2:  HeartCode ACLS Part 2 are hands-on skills practice session with a voice-assisted manikin (VAM) system for Ventilation and CPR at SimTiki Simulation Center.  To purchase the HeartCode ACLS certification program, please make available your current AHA BLS card front and back.
