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
Bag Valve Mask Use
Team Rescue Adult, Child, & Infant BLS
Adult, Child, & Infant Relief from Choking
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.
