Basic Life Support (BLS)  - $65.00

This course provides the foundation for saving lives from cardiac arrest. It teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both prehospital and in-facility environments, with a focus on high-quality CPR and team dynamics. This course is for healthcare providers for initial certification or for those looking to recertify. These include EMS personnel, physician assistants, doctors, dentists, nurses and respiratory therapists. It is also ideal for students entering the healthcare field. Tuition includes the required AHA CPR BLS textbook. You must pass a written and practical skills exam to obtain certification.

HeartCode Basic Life Support - $35.00

HeartCode BLS uses a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities to teach students BLS knowledge and skills. To purchase the eLearning online activation code from the AHA, please select Heartcode BLS.  You will receive an activation key which you will need to launch your course. After successfully completing the online portion, students must register to attend a structured BLS skills session with an AHA Instructor at HACC's Shumaker Public Safety Center. This session focuses on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols, and skills testing. HeartCode BLS is for healthcare professionals seeking an alternative method for completing an initial or renewal BLS Course. Purchasing the activation code from the AHA does not enroll you into a skills session. You must register for both separately; completing the online portion first.
