BLS Provider Online/Blended option
Course Format: The American Heart Association (AHA) offers a blended option for the BLS Provider Course. The BLS Provider Blended learning course (half online / half in class) has three parts. This course format can be used for original or renewal students.
Part 1 is called "Heartcode BLS", which is completed online by the student and covers the lecture and written test part of the course. It must be completed online by the student on the AHA website.
Parts 2 & 3 (Practice and Skills Test) must be completed at a physical location with an AHA instructor in a traditional classroom setting (skills session).
HOW IT WORKS:
- Complete Part 1, called "Heartcode BLS" (the lecture and written test) online on the AHA website. You may purchase the online part one below. If you purchase the online course from us, you will receive a confirmation email which will include a unique link/url to the AHA website to gain access to the online course. If you already completed the online part, you may register for the skills session only below.
