HEARTCODE BASIC LIFE SUPPORT COURSE

HeartCode BLS is the AHA/IHF blended learning delivery method for the BLS Course. HeartCode blended learning delivers quality resuscitation education regardless of where providers are located and gives them more control to complete the course at their own pace. Providers first complete the online portion of HeartCode BLS and then complete a hands-on skills session with an AHA BLS Instructor. Prior to attending the face to face practical assessment the candidate must hold the Heartcode BLS part 1 completion certificate.
