Course Description

The AHA HeartCode® BLS course is a two-part self-directed blended learning program that allows you to complete, assess, and review the course at your own pace.

Part 1: The Online Portion includes eLearning simulation and interactive activities to teach students the knowledge and skills of basic life support.  Students may access all materials, including BLS Provider Manual, in the online portion; hard copy of the manual is not included. Please allow approximately 90-100 minutes to complete part 1 (depending on experience level).

Part 2: The Hands-on Session is completed at the Medical Education Simulation Center - UC Irvine Campus, using a voice-assisted manikin (VAM), where you must show proficiency in chest compressions, ventilations and CPR. Please allow approximately 45 minutes to complete part 2 (depending on experience level).

The BLS eCard will be provided after completion of both parts.
