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 2.5 hours, with a mix of video-based learning and skills practice. Class ends with a 25-question written exam and skills testing.

Skills sessions are for students who have already completed AHA BLS HeartCode at AHA’s online class website - 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 will not take less time than the full, in-person BLS.

Which option is more expensive?

HeartCode with skills session is more expensive ($29 + $39 = $68, versus the $47 price for AHA BLS full, in-person).
