For first-time PALS certification or renewal. Not open to contract RNs.
HeartCode is an appropriate alternative for experienced pediatric healthcare providers who are comfortable with computer simulation, and may have class-time limitations. As a first-time PALS course, it is a good option for experienced providers practicing PALS in their daily work. Part 1 provides online self-paced learning (average 4–8 hours), interactive case simulation and a written exam. In the half-day Part 2, participants practice and test team leader and team member skills using case scenarios. Completion of Part 1 is required for participation in Part 2.
Part 1 online key code is included in fee. If you already purchased a key code directly from OnlineAHA.org, you can register for Part 2 only for a discounted fee.
Information on computer technical requirements for Part 1 can be found at OnlineAHA.org.
