The BLS for Healthcare Providers - Classroom Course is designed to provide a wide variety of healthcare professionals the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.  The program consists of:

• Key changes in basic life support, reflecting the new science from the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care

• Critical concepts of high-quality CPR

• The American Heart Association Chain of Survival

• 1-Rescuer CPR and AED for adult, child and infant

• 2-Rescuer CPR and AED for adult, child and infant

• Differences between adult, child and infant rescue techniques

• Bag-mask techniques for adult, child and infant

• Rescue breathing for adult, child and infant

• Relief of choking for adult, child and infant

• CPR with an advanced airway

HeartCode Parts II and III incorporates skills practice and skills testing into a single course. During Part II, a certified AHA instructor will allow students time to practice the skills they will be assessed on prior to the Part III skills test. Upon successful completion of the cognitive and skills tests, students receive a course completion card.
To register, please select a skills practice and testing date below (Part II and III). You may chose a date at a later time by selecting "Will Contact to Schedule the Skills Practice/Testing Date".You must have completed Part I prior to attending Part II and III. Please note that you must complete Part II and III within 60 days of completing Part I.

HeartCode® ACLS is an interactive three-part course designed to provide healthcare professionals with the competencies to effectively perform advanced emergency cardiac care. HeartCode Part I is a Web-based, self-paced instructional 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.This program presents 10 interactive, adult, in-hospital cases to teach the Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support treatment algorithms. To be successful in any ACLS course, students should be able to identify ECG rhythms and should know pharmacology specific to cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiopulmonary emergencies before beginning the course.

HeartCode Parts II and III incorporates skills practice and skills testing into a single course. During Part II, a certified AHA instructor will allow students time to practice the skills they will be assessed on prior to the Part III skills test. Upon successful completion of the cognitive and skills tests, students receive a course completion card.

The HeartCode® BLS is an interactive three-part course designed for healthcare professionals seeking an alternative (nonclassroom) method for completing an initial or renewal BLS for Healthcare Providers Course. HeartCode Part I is a Web-based, self-paced instructional 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. The 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, the addition of AED use in infants, a focus on high-quality CPR and the emphasis on switching healthcare providers frequently to maintain quality chest compressions. 

HeartCode Parts II and III incorporates skills practice and skills testing into a single course. During Part II, a certified AHA instructor will allow students time to practice the skills they will be assessed on prior to the Part III skills test. Upon successful completion of the cognitive and skills tests, students receive a course completion card.

HeartCode® PALS is an interactive three-part course designed for healthcare providers who respond to emergencies in infants and children. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics and others who need a PALS course completion card and are seeking an alternative (non-classroom) method for completing an initial or update PALS course.. HeartCode Part I is a Web-based, self-paced instructional 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.This program presents12 pediatric, hospital-based, patient cases with up to four healthcare providers to teach the Pediatric Advance Life Support treatment algorithms. To be successful in any PALS course, students should be able to identify ECG rhythms and should know pharmacology specific to cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiopulmonary emergencies before beginning the course.

HeartCode Parts II and III incorporates skills practice and skills testing into a single course. During Part II, a certified AHA instructor will allow students time to practice the skills they will be assessed on prior to the Part III skills test. Upon successful completion of the cognitive and skills tests, students receive a course completion card.

The Pediatric Emergency, Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization (PEARS) course is designed to prepare healthcare providers and first responders who infrequently see critically ill children and are not required to have the advanced skills of PALS to identify a pediatric victim at risk of severe cardiopulmonary distress, intervene early to stabilize the child, and contact the next level of care as soon as possible.

TAUGHT BY PALS INSTRUCTORS, THE PEARS COURSE COVERS:

  • Pediatric assessment
  • Respiratory compromise and arrest recognition and management
  • Circulatory compromise and arrest recognition and management
  • Shock recognition and management
  • Resuscitation team concept


PEARS training is intended for any healthcare provider and others who might encounter pediatric emergency situations in the course of their work, including:

  • Physicians and nurses not specializing in pediatrics
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Physician assistants
  • Paramedics
  • Respiratory therapists
  • Prehospital & in-hospital healthcare providers (outside of critical-care areas)
  • Outpatient clinic staff
  • School-based providers

PEARS training is not intended for those with staff members who routinely provide pediatric care and are required to have PALS certification.

Course length is approximately 7 hours and is given in an instructor-led training session. Passing a video-based written exam and skills test is required for the awarding of a PEARS Provider Course Completion Card.
