LearnSomething to Offer American Heart Association Courses

May 22, 2012

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — LearnSomething, a leading developer of eLearning content and recognized provider of learning platforms for retail and non-profit organizations, now offers online courses from the American Heart Association (AHA), the world leader in emergency cardiovascular care resources.

The AHA online courses offered by LearnSomething will make vital information easily accessible for healthcare professionals who want to update their professional skills or satisfy education and training requirements.

“Being able to offer AHA courses will help us provide many of our clients with the technology delivered education they want…and need,” said Steve Roden, CEO of LearnSomething. “The public may not realize that only AHA training courses are vetted by AHA scientists and educators, and are preferred among most healthcare providers.”

LearnSomething will offer AHA courses through its learning portal and provide learners with full support.

Courses of particular interest to community pharmacists include the BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Part 1. Pharmacists can complete this course as part of their requirements to earn a BLS course completion card required for healthcare professionals who provide immunizations.

Like many online courses from AHA, BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Part 1 is part of a blended learning approach. Students learn cognitive skills through the Web-based, self-paced Part 1 of the sequence, then they participate in a hands-on skills practice and testing session (Parts 2 and 3) with an AHA BLS Instructor. An AHA BLS Healthcare Provider course completion card will be issued upon successful completion of all three parts.

The online format provides pharmacists with 24/7 access to the course, eliminates scheduling and logistical issues that can result from classroom training, and fits the hectic demands of a community pharmacy setting.

LearnSomething’s AHA course offerings include:

  • BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Part 1
  • Heartsaver(®) CPR AED Online Part 1
  • Heartsaver(®) First Aid Online Part 1
  • Heartsaver(®) First Aid CPR AED Online Part 1
