So What’s the Difference Between BLS Skills Sessions and BLS Full Classes? And which do I choose???
The AHA BLS full, in-person class is simply that - the traditional class. It takes 4 hours, beginning with two hours of videos. Then there is a 25-question written exam, followed by about 45 minutes of skills practice and testing.
Skills sessions are for students who have already completed AHA BLS HeartCode at AHA’s online class website - onlineaha.org. This is a “blended” option, where you do a full online course first, followed by a one-hour skills practice and testing session in person (the "skills session").
This is my first time doing BLS. Which option should I choose?
Full, in-person BLS. Simple as that.
I’ve been a super-duper RN/MD/EMT-P for years and have done BLS several times. Which option should I choose?
92% of students who have tried both say they prefer our in-person class over the online HeartCode, but if you need to break up your BLS into smaller segments due to a busy schedule, this may be a better option for you. Just remember - it may not take less time than the full, in-person BLS.
Which option is more expensive?
HeartCode with skills session is more expensive ($29 + $25 = $54, versus the $45 flat rate for AHA BLS full, in-person).
