Code One’s BEACON Bundle is American Heart Association hybrid training designed for healthcare professionals who desire to learn or refresh their Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) skills.  Learners complete a portion of their courses  – Heartcode BLS, ACLS, & PALS – online and then come to our center for an individual skills appointment.

Yes.  The BEACON Bundle program is an approved American Heart Association program that results in a two year AHA BLS, ACLS, and PALS Provider certificates upon successful completion.

Code One has over 50 locations which offer Bundle Skills Sessions by appointment.  While the exact hours of operation vary by location, most Code One Training Centers accept appointments Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM and Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  See our list of locations here.

Yes.  We require that the Heartcode courses be completed before you schedule the Bundle Skills Session to ensure that you have the coursework done and are ready for your session.

BEACON is the American Heart Association program with some enhancements.  Learners use instrumented manikins from RQI Partners which provide immediate audio and visual feedback on each skill to allow rescuers to achieve mastery and allowing you to BE A CONfident rescuer.

The BEACON Bundle Complete Package includes the required Heartcode BLS, ACLS, and PALS Online courses plus a Hands-On Skills Verification appointment at Code One.  This is the course that most learners require.

BEACON Bundle Skills Only is ONLY for learners who have already completed the American Heart Association Heartcode BLS, ACLS, and PALS courses and have their certificate dated in the past year.

BOTH the Heartcode courses and the skills session are needed to satisfy certification even if you are renewing your certificates.

The BEACON Bundle Complete Package includes theory (Heartcode BLS, ACLS and PALS) and skills verification (Bundle Skills).

Here’s the approximate time it takes to complete each one:

  • The online portion of HeartCode BLS, ACLS, and PALS are adaptive learning platforms which will adapt (as the name suggests) to your learning needs. If you find yourself benefiting from a more robust learning process the platform will shift to incorporate more videos, examples and practice opportunities to amplify your competency. On the other hand if you are an experienced healthcare provider, the platform will adjust to focus on knowledge verification. Depending on where you are on the spectrum of competency and confidence, Heartcode BLS can be completed in approximately 1-2 hours and the Heartcode ACLS and PALS courses can be completed in 2-6 hours each.
  • On average, the time to complete the hands-on skills session is about two hours.  Experienced rescuers may complete the skills in less time.

HeartCode is the American Heart Association’s blended learning option for BLS, ACLS, and PALS.  The Heartcode courses are adaptive and will adjust content based on the prior knowledge of the learner.  Topics include basic life support for adults, children, and infants, acute coronary syndromes, stroke, respiratory management, shock, and cardiac arrest management.

Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a learner completes part of the course in a self-directed manner, and a hands-on skills session.  In order to meet BLS, ACLS, and PALS Provider certificate requirements, learners are required to complete both the Heartcode courses and the hands-on skills session.

The BEACON Bundle Complete Package includes the Heartcode PALS course and the individual skills appointment at a Code One Training Center location.

Learners arrive for their scheduled appointment to a Code One Training Center location and check-in using the instructions in their confirmation email.  Our system will confirm your appointment and call you with a door code so you may enter the skills training room.
