HeartCode Skills

overview

AHA Heart­Code cours­es use a vari­ety of eLearn­ing assets such as drama­ti­za­tions, eSim­u­la­tions, ani­ma­tions, self-direct­ed learn­ing, and inter­ac­tive activ­i­ties to teach stu­dents knowl­edge and skills. After com­plet­ing the online por­tion, stu­dents attend a struc­tured Heart­Code hands-on ses­sion, the Heart­Code Skills Course, with an AHA Instruc­tor. This ses­sion focus­es on mean­ing­ful skills prac­tice, debrief­ing, team sce­nar­ios, dis­cus­sions of local pro­to­cols, and skills testing.
