Overview

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 15-1407) 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. 

To enter the online course, students must complete a precourse self-assessment. Students will then be presented with a team dynamics lesson and 10 In-hospital patient cases, including a BLS case and 2 megacode cases.

Upon successful completion of all the patient cases, students must pass the written exam with a score of 84%. Students then are able to register and attend the hands-on session at TMCC for full course completion.

Who Should Take The Course

Healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, and paramedics.

Course Cards

ACLS : Participants who complete the course and pass the written exam will receive a course completion card (credential), which is good for a two-year period. This will come in the form of an eCard, which will be emailed to you. (If you have taken a prior course and have not yet received the card, please check your email's "spam" folder first, prior to contacting the instructor.)
