Beginning January 1, 2018, all US-based AHA TCs will be required to use AHA eCards for issuing course completion cards to providers and students who successfully complete the requirements of AHA courses
Materials for the AHA’s BLS Renewal Course will be available on Thursday, January 18.
The BLS Renewal Course is for current BLS providers who need to renew their BLS skills and BLS Provider course completion card. This video-based, Instructor-led course features accelerated content that is designed for learners with existing BLS knowledge from a previous BLS Instructor-led or HeartCode BLS Course, allowing for time efficiency while teaching both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both in-facility and prehospital settings.
By January 31, 2019, the AHA will require the use of an instrumented directive feedback device or manikin in all AHA courses that teach the skills of adult CPR. This requirement will impact AHA BLS, ACLS, ACLS for Experienced Providers, and Heartsaver® Courses.)
