It includes interactive patient cases that test the user’s ability to apply the ACLS algorithms to effect treatment. HeartCodeTM ACLS includes interactive patient cases that test the student’s ability to apply the ACLS algorithms to effect treatment. HeartCodeTM 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.

Depending on course content, eLearning courses are delivered in one, two or three parts. Courses that only involve cognitive learning can be completed online in one part. For courses that contain psychomotor skills such as CPR, students must complete an in-person “skills session” in addition to online learning. A skills session is comprised of Part 2, skills practice, and Part 3, skills testing.

Upon successful completion of all three parts students receive a course completion card valid for two years.

This three-part delivery effectively blends cognitive learning with skills training. Students are not able to experience the delivery of physical skills from a PC, so eLearning is only as effective as the skills training provided. For successful course completion, AHA requires that eLearning courses with psychomotor skills include:

* Part 1: online cognitive lessons—anytime and anywhere with computer access * Part 2: hands-on skills practice * Part 3: hands-on skills testing

No matter the format, all online courses begin with a key. A key is a 12–digit alphanumeric code that is used to access purchased courses. An email will be send on how to activate a purchased course.
