HeartCode Basic Life Support (BLS) Skills Only

Health Care Professional Education

The American Heart Association HeartCode BLS course is intended for health care professionals and others seeking an alternative method for completing an initial or renewal BLS course.

HeartCode BLS utilizes a variety of eLearning tools such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities to teach students BLS knowledge and skills.

HeartCode BLS is a 2 part blended learning program. Part 1 is an online, self-paced instructional program. Part 2 is a hands-on skills testing session. The skills session can be completed during a HeartCode BLS Skills Only class, in which students attend a structured skills testing session with an AHA Instructor. This session focuses on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols, and skills testing. Alternatively, St. Luke’s employees who have access to the HealthStream Learning Center may choose to complete the required skills testing with the use of Voice Assisted Manikins (VAM). ***Note*** The VAM skills testing option is not available to the public.
