This course is also available in an instructor-led classroom version with the Basic Life Support Course.
The HeartCode Basic Life Support (BLS) Course provides a flexible alternative to classroom-based training which shortens the time required in the classroom.
Part 1 is web-based and accessible 24 hours a day online at www.oahucprtraining.myonlineaha.org. Through case-based scenarios, interactive activities and videos, this course teaches the concepts of both single-rescuer and team basic life support.
Upon registering you will receive an email that contains a Keycode and instructions to access Part 1 of the course. Upon successful completion of Part 1, students receive a certificate that allows them entrance to a structured classroom session where skills practice and testing is performed. For full course completion, Part 1 must be paired with a classroom hands-on skills practice and testing session (Parts 2 and 3) with an AHA BLS Instructor.
Skills will be practiced and tested using advanced computerized QCPR manikins to ensure that high-quality CPR skills are being performed. Evidence supports using feedback during CPR training improves both skill acquisition and retention. Real-time feedback enhances performance both during training and debriefing after. Simply put, when you know better, you do better.
AUDIENCE: The course is intended for certified or non-certified, licensed or non-licensed healthcare professionals.

Successful completion is based on achievement of the core learning objectives and skills demonstration rather than a prescribed instruction time. Class length varies depending on class size and participant competency. Actual class times may vary. We will not move onto the next skill unless everyone feels comfortable with their mastery of that skill. Additional practice time for each skill may be required depending on class participant skill level. Such additional practice time will lengthen the overall class time. Typical class completion times vary between 4 to 7 hours. We have no way of knowing exactly how long each class will last and what time the class will end. If you can not spend the entire day in the class please do not register for the class.
Because this class teaches multi-rescuer CPR skills in order for us to teach this class there must be at least 3 students. If there are not at least 3 students signed up for this class we will not be able to properly teach the class. In the rare event that this happens we will have to reschedule the class. We will try to give notice via email at least 24-hours before the class.
