HeartCode ACLS - $50.00

HeartCode ACLS uses a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities to teach students ACLS knowledge and skills. To purchase the eLearning online activation code from the AHA, please select HeartCode ACLS.  You will receive an activation key which you will need to launch your course. After successfully completing the online portion, students must register to attend a structured ACLS skills session with an AHA Instructor at HACC's Shumaker Public Safety Center. This session focuses on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols, and skills testing. HeartCode ACLS is for healthcare professionals seeking an alternative method for completing an initial or renewal ACLS Course. Purchasing the activation code from the AHA does not enroll you into a skills session. You must register for both separately; completing the online portion first.
