HeartCode ACLS is the AHA’s ACLS blended learning delivery method. Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes the video portion of the course in a self-directed manner, followed by a hands-on session with an instructor.
The online portion of this comprehensive eLearning program uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. The online portion of this course (course product 20-3554) is purchased directly through AHA and is completed prior to registration/attendance to your skills session at TMCC. Fees for the online course are not paid to TMCC and are not part of the skills session fees.
