Do you need a BLS certification class in English? No problem. Although our classes are normally taught in Spanish, we can coordinate BLS, ACLS, PALS, trauma or any of our certification courses in English to suit your needs.

ECCtrainings provides the American Heart Association’s BLS certification every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9am, and Thursdays at 6pm. See our calendar here. But our live courses are taught in Spanish. If you are able to understand the spoken word and choose to participate in a class, you are welcome to participate in our regularly scheduled classes.

Scheduling a private class requires a minimum of students. If you are willing and able to assist in the coordination of a private class, contact us so we can further assist you.

Otherwise, an American Heart Association’s HeartCode BLS course may be another option for you.

HeartCode BLS

The American Heart Association offers eLearning and Blended Learning courses to provide complete, flexible training solutions. You can access the American Heart Association’s online eLearning portal here.

All courses are developed using the most current emergency cardiovascular care science from the American Heart Association.

The eLearning component of Heartcode BLS (for Healthcare Professionals) blended learning, this course uses a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities to teach students BLS knowledge and skills.

HeartCode BLS Skills Session

Students still complete in-person hands-on skills sessions and testing for courses requiring CPR and other psychomotor skills.

For American Heart Association courses that include psychomotor skills such as CPR, students must complete an in-person skills practice and testing session to obtain an AHA course completion card. With AHA Blended Learning, the skills practice and skills test are taken together during a Hands-on Skills Session after the student completes the eLearning portion online.

Skills Sessions are conducted by ECCtrainings’s authorized AHA Instructors.

Contact Us to Schedule a Skills Session

Let us know you need to coordinate a skills session. Once you complete the online portion, and have your certificate at hand, we can coordinate the skills session at our facility (located here). Please email Gustavo Flores to coordinate a suitable date and time.
