Online Heartcode Advanced Cardiovascular 
Life Support (ACLS)


HeartCode ACLS is the AHA’s blended learning delivery method for the AHA’s ACLS Course. HeartCode blended learning delivers quality resuscitation education regardless of where providers are located and gives them more control to complete the course at their own pace. Providers first complete the online portion of HeartCode ACLS and then complete a hands-on skills session with an AHA ACLS Instructor or on a simulation station. To enter the course, participants must complete a precourse self-assessment.


Rather than traveling to our office, ACLS Providers can complete their skills session virtually via Zoom. Please contact us once you have registered; we have set aside

specific dates for the virtual sessions, and we will assist you with the change.


How does the 2020 Guidelines version of HeartCode differ from the 2020 Guidelines version of HeartCode?


The 2020 Guidelines HeartCode uses a personalized adaptive algorithm that sets students on the most efficient path to mastery. Students follow a continuously adapting learning path that is personalized by their inputs: their performance and their self-reported confidence level related to each probing question. The course content is presented in the form of self-directed learning content, probing questions, and Cognitive Assessment Activities (CAAs).



Do you need BLS?
Choose this option when registering: BLS add-on

The AHA allows Instructors to add BLS skills testing and an exam to provide both a BLS Provider eCard and an ACLS Provider eCard upon completing the ACLS course. If a BLS Provider card is to be issued, a BLS Instructor must be present to complete the infant CPR skills tests and the exam. This will add approximately 30 minutes to your class day. 


Online key codes cannot be returned or substituted for another online key code once purchased. Please confirm your need for an online course or a skills session only.

You will receive your AHA Certification Card immediately after class; valid for
2 years.
