 ACLS and PALS Online Courses During COVID-19

The online portion of the ACLS and PALS courses was introduced by Heart and Stroke during the first wave of the COVID 19 Pandemic.  It consists of 2 parts.  Day 1 (Part 1) is online, Day 2 (Part 2) is in class.  

 

This means the traditional 2 day ACLS and PALS courses have been shortened to 1 day in class.

How it works:

Day 1 - online - (Part 1):

(Available from 9am - 10pm the day prior to your in-class portion.)

Once you register on our website for your course, we will send you a "Welcome Package" via email.  This PDF will have links to online videos and the written exam for your course, all the material can be accessed the day prior to your in-class portion from 9am - 10pm.  

Day 2: - in class - (Part 2):  

(9am-5pm).  Part 2 is an instructor-led, classroom-based session where you will benefit from ample opportunity for hands-on skills practice, expert coaching, debriefing, team scenarios and comprehensive skills testing.

The BLS prerequisite challenge is for those who are competent in their BLS skills however they may have let their BLS certificate expire.  

Powered with a new, user-friendly online learning platform, the BLS prerequisite challenge teaches the same curriculum and hones the same skills as our traditional, instructor-led course – but on average, it takes less time to complete. A Blended course is divided into two parts:

Part 1: Online: a self-paced, cognitive learning and assessment program with easy access to a rich array of resources, activities, learning videos, knowledge checks and an electronic exam. Once you have completed the first part of the program you will move on to the in-person portion. 
 

Part 2: In-class: an instructor-led, classroom-based session where you will benefit from ample opportunity for hands-on skills practice, expert coaching, debriefing, team scenarios and comprehensive skills testing.
