Blended CPR Courses

Blended courses through the American Heart Association are an alternative option for Healthline First Aid clients that want increased flexibility in training, and can be done in a group or one-on-one format. Milwaukee CPR and Milwaukee ACLS clients of Healthline have been using the blended courses for some time now with excellent results. Spanish CPR courses are not available in a blended format yet, but Healthline First Aid is working with the American Heart Association in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine and throughout Wisconsin, and will hopefully be adding new Spanish content in the near future.

Some of the common courses for which Healthline First Aid provides skills testing are:

  • The HeartCode ACLS Part 1 presents realistic patient scenarios, where students are presented with a lesson on team dynamics, ten ACLS hospital-based case scenarios, and a written exam. After completing Part 1, to receive an AHA ACLS Provider course completion card, students must successfully complete Parts 2 and 3 with an AHA ACLS course instructor, which would be scheduled at the Healthline office. 

    When completing Parts 2 and 3, Healthline wants all of their clients to feel comfortable with the material. Here we will discuss the application of the course content, review medications and the appropriate administration of those medications, and discuss some of the practical aspects of the course. Healthline uses a touchscreen computer program with the megacode scenarios, to provide a realistic training experience, which is in accordance with the standards setup by the American Heart Association for providing ACLS testing.

    ACLS classes and classes throughout and Wisconsin, using the blended course, are available for groups looking to schedule onsite at their location.

    Notes:

    Per the American Heart Association, this course offers continuing education credits for physicians (ACCME/AMA), nurses (ANCC), pharmacists (ACPE), and EMS Practitioners (CECBEMS).

    The ACLS certification is valid for two years.

  • In the BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Part 1, students will learn to care for victims as a single-rescuer, but they will also learn to work as a team when providing care to adults, children, and infants. To do this, they will go through five interactive exercises, different scenarios, and take a 25 questions written test. Just like in a traditional BLS, students will learn how to recognize life-threatening emergencies, provide high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations with a pocket mask and a BVM, and how to provide early defibrillation with an AED. The course also covers how to relieve choking in adults, children, and infants.

    After completing Part 1, in order to receive a BLS for Healthcare Provider certification card, students are required to schedule Parts 2 and 3 with an instructor at the Healthline office. This is where students will practice the skills they learned online, and will complete an adult and infant skills assessment. To help all of our clients feel confident in the practical application of the skills, we provide individual attention to everyone. 

    Unlike a traditional BLS course that requires a workbook, the online content serves as a virtual workbook. Students have access to the course content for two years.

  • IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER the blended courses through the American Heart Association are not considered online certifications. A common concern that we hear from our clients is that online CPR certifications are not valid, but the blended course provides the exact same certification a traditional class does because clients are still required to do a skills practice and testing session with an instructor. Healthline has used the blended course with college nursing and occupational therapy programs, with great results.

    The blended courses offered by the American Heart Association can be found under the course tab at www.OnlineAHA.org. After setting up an account, clients will be able to purchase the certification they need, and can complete the course right away, or start and stop the course as needed. After completing the online portion, clients should print their certificate of completion and bring it to a scheduled skills class. The cost for a skills class vary based on the certification.
