HeartCode BLS is for healthcare professionals seeking an alternative method for completing a BLS Provider Course.  AHA blended learning courses combine the flexibility of online training with in person skills practice and testing.

After completing the online portion, students attend a structured BLS Hands-On Session with an AHA Instructor.  This session focuses on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols, and skills testing.  Tri-City Medical Center considers the skills portion a challenging course for those whom are proficient in CPR.
