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. Access to the ACLS Provider Manual eBook (20-3100) is included with HeartCode ACLS. You will be able to access the Provider Manual from within the course.

This product has been updated with new science from the 2020 Guidelines for CPR and ECC and replaces the previous version (15-1407).

How does the 2020 Guidelines version of HeartCode differ from the 2015 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 own 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).
