Part # 20-3554 HeartCode ACLS Online is the AHA’s blended learning delivery method that uses adaptive learning technology for the AHA’s ACLS Course. HeartCode ACLS Online delivers quality resuscitation education by utilizing a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, Cognitive Assessment Activities, illustrations, knowledge checks and interactive activities. This self-pace delivery method provides learners a personalized learning path that adapts in real time to the learner’s performance. Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each knowledge check and each Cognitive Assessment Activity. ACLS Instructors no longer need to assign pre-work, selfassessments, and final exams separately, as they typically would through Instructor-Led training. This method of learning provides training consistency and adaptability to different learning styles. Providers first complete the cognitive portion of HeartCode ACLS Online and then complete a hands-on skills session with an AHA ACLS Instructor or on a simulation station, using voice assisted manikins with real-time audio and visual feedback. Upon successful completion of the online portion of HeartCode ACLS Online, a certificate of completion will be issued, and can be printed in English only.
This course includes a drop-down menu that allows the learner to take the course in one of three languages: U.S. English, IVE, and Portuguese. Included in HeartCode ACLS Online is a translated version of the ACLS Provider Manual eBook (Based on the language selected). For all languages selected, the course will reference the imperial system, and other U.S. based terminology. This does not apply to IVE.
The AHA’s ACLS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2020 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC, as well as the 2019 Update to the 2018 ASA Ischemic Stroke Guidelines.
