HeartCode®

Join Us in the Pursuit of Zero Lives Lost to Sudden Cardiac Arrest

The American Heart Association’s HeartCode® programs deliver quality resuscitation training through a more flexible delivery method. This method gives providers and administrators more control of their time, schedules and resources. Now, available from the AHA and Laerdal Medical, comes the next step – HeartCode Complete®.

HeartCode Complete allows learners to fully complete their BLS, ACLS or PALS training at their own pace, with courses delivered through your organization’s LMS or through RQI Partners’ own RQI1Stop platform. The program delivers detailed debriefing after each online learning module and real-time audio and visual feedback during skills sessions to ensure learners are receiving the highest-quality training possible. After completing their assigned course, learners earn an AHA eCard valid for two years.

By combining comprehensive online learning with hands-on skills practice and testing, HeartCode Complete delivers consistent, quality resuscitation training across a healthcare organization at a pace that is right for every individual.

HeartCode Complete

HeartCode Complete is evolving. The American Heart Association released new 2020 Guidelines for CPR & Emergency Cardiovascular Care on October 21, 2020. Using this cutting-edge new science, the HeartCode Complete course has been upgraded to a new edition.
