if you are interested in taking acls, the aha now offers it in a blended format in which you complete the cognitive/didactic portion on line, and then contact and aha acls instructor to complete the skills evaluation portion. information on the aha blended program option is available at the following site: aha e-learning acls. if you opt to take the blended course, the cost of the online portion is $105.00. i could not readily locate on the site, but i believe that you have 14 days to complete the entire online portion. after completion of the online portion you can locate an instructor to complete your skills evaluation using the aha ecc course connector website. there might be an additional charge for the skills evaluation. i would also suggest contacting an instructor prior to ensure availability of a skills evaluation prior to enrolling in the course.
if you are interested in attending a traditional aha acls course, you can use the aha ecc course connector to locate an upcoming course.
