American Heart Association (AHA) Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Heartcode (HC)

An alternative to traditional, classroom-based ACLS training, HeartCode™ ACLS is a self-directed, comprehensive eLearning program from the American Heart Association. The full course combines an interactive, cognitive portion completed online (Part 1), with CPR skills training. It includes interactive patient cases that test the user’s ability to apply the ACLS algorithms to effect treatment. Users can practice (Part 2) and test their skills (Part 3) with a certified AHA ACLS Instructor. Upon successful completion of all three parts, students receive their ACLS Provider Course Completion Card.

HeartCode™ ACLS includes interactive patient cases that test the student’s ability to apply the ACLS algorithms to effect treatment. HeartCode™ ACLS will provide your team the benefits of standardized ACLS instruction and improved competency, and may also save time and money compared to traditional classes.

This program presents 10 interactive, adult, in-hospital cases to teach the Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support treatment algorithms.

NOTE: Unprepared or inexperienced students may require additional time to complete HeartCode ACLS Part 1. 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. It is strongly recommended that students review the ACLS course materials contained within the program and complete the Precourse Self-Assessment prior to attempting the patient cases.
