The American Heart Association’s Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support Heartcode Anywhere course is an alternative way to complete ACLS from the traditional classroom setting. Even though the Heartcode Anywhere course is approved for both renewal and initial courses, it was originally developed for the experienced provider in mind.
Course completion consists of two parts, the computer-base cognitive program and the skills testing.
Part one: After registering for the course, participants will receive an online license key to ACLS Heartcode and instructions. Participants must print the completion certificate to bring to the skills session.
Part two: Participants enroll in a skills testing session offered at Saint Francis Medical Center within 30 days of completing part one. Testing includes – correct bag-mask ventilation and CPR 1-rescuer test. You may practice your skills prior to testing at the same location as the testing area by arriving early for your scheduled time. Testing takes approximately 30 minutes.
After the participant presents a Part one certificate, successfully completes Part two skills testing, provides a current copy of HCP CPR card and payment has been secured, an AHA ACLS completion card will be issued by mail within 7-10 business days.
Health care providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient and/or require credentialing in ACLS.
Saint Francis Employees
Training and Development offers a combination of live and renewal ACLS classes for those employees that are required to maintain current ACLS status and can attend these courses at no charge. If an employee chooses to complete the ACLS Anywhere course, Training and Development will not cover the cost of the program that is required. Part two skills testing and issuing of the card will be offered at no charge to employees. Contact the Saint Francis Training and Development department for information.
The cost is $225 and includes skills testing.
ACLS skills testing only cost: $40
BLS skills testing only cost: $25
To secure enrollment, participants must make suitable arrangements for payment through the Training and Development department. At that time, the license key and instructions will be issued and the Part two skills testing is scheduled. Payment must be secured at the time of Part two skills testing and before the card is issued.
