About the Course

Heart Code BLS is an official AHA 2 part program designed for those individuals that are interested in self-paced, online BLS certification and recertification. 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 BLS algorithms) and administer treatment. 

  • Part I: The didactic portion requires the participants to complete online scenarios and written exam. This can be completed anywhere you have an internet connection. Average completion time 1 hour. 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 BLS 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.  

  • The course fee is $200.  This is a Non-Refundable Program. Once registered, WISER does not have the ability to refund your fees.

Cancellation Policy: It is our general policy that unless otherwise stipulated,  if a participant cannot attend a class that is previously paid for, they must inform the course director by email at least 2 weeks prior to the class date for a full refund. Course director emails can be found on the directory page for each course on the WISER web site.  If the cancellation occurs within 2 weeks of the class, the participant is subject to the revocation of a portion or the entire course fee to WISER.  In addition, they may be subject to a cancellation fee based upon a percentage of the course cost.

When you register for a class you will be prompted to login. If you do not have a WISER user account, follow the instructions on the login screen to create an account. You can then register for a class after the account creation process is complete.
