HeartCode® BLS is the American Heart Association’s hybrid learning delivery method for the BLS Provider course. Students first complete the online portion of HeartCode® BLS and then complete an in-person or virtual hands-on skills session with VT SafetyNet.

Note: The online course has a separate fee.

Step 1: AHA Online Course

  • Scene Safety & Assessment
  • Single Rescuer Adult, Child, & Infant CPR (Compressions and Breaths)
  • CPR Pocket Mask Use
  • AED Use
  • Bag Valve Mask Use
  • Team Rescue Adult, Child, & Infant BLS
  • Adult, Child, & Infant Relief from Choking
  • High-Performance CPR
  • Team Dynamics

Step 2: In-person or virtual hands-on skills session and skill check with VT SafetyNet to demonstrate all skills learned in the HeartCode® BLS online course. 

Important: Some other online courses promise their certification is accepted nationally and enable you to print your certification card immediately. However, if there is not an in-person skills practice and skill check conducted by an authorized instructor, it is unlikely that your certification card will be considered valid by most businesses/agencies/hospitals.

This course is designed for professional rescuers, nurses, EMTs, dentists, doctors, healthcare professionals, and their office staff.

There are no prerequisites for this course. 

Important: This class is for healthcare providers only and does not include first aid.
