About the Course

Heart Code ACLS is an official AHA 2 part program designed for those individuals that are interested in self-paced, online ACLS certification and re-certification. Providers are presented with, online course content and realistic patient cases. Participants are required to interact with the program to assess the patient, formulate a treatment plan (based on the ACLS algorithms) and administer treatment.

  • Part I: The didactic portion requires the participants to complete on-line scenarios and written exam. This can be completed anywhere you have an internet connection.  Average completion time 4.5 hours. Participants have 60 days from the time of completion of part I to complete part II.

  • Part II: The skills portion is facilitated by an AHA-certified ACLS instructor. You can schedule your part II after you have successfully completed part I. Average time to completion is 45 minutes. Please contact wiserhelp@upmc.edu or call 412-648-6073 for scheduling part II.
