What's the difference between the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Red Cross? Primarily, the AHA is the authoritative source that does all the research and creates guidelines every 5 years. The Red Cross, among other certifying agencies, uses the research from AHA and creates their own courses with their brand. The standard for CPR education in the medical field throughout the country has been the American Heart Association for over 30 years.
The American Heart Association’s HeartCode ACLS Course, web-based and accessible 24 hours a day, provides a flexible, blended alternative to traditional classroom training. This online instructional program builds on the foundation of lifesaving BLS and uses the latest eSimulation technology to enable students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. Students apply their knowledge to real-time decision making and skills development, and receive debriefings and coaching immediately after each simulation. After completing the online portion, students attend a hands-on session to test their skills with an AHA Instructor or on a voice-assisted manikin (VAM).
