Depending on course content, eLearning courses are delivered in one, two or three parts. Courses that only involve cognitive learning can be completed online in one part. For courses that contain psychomotor skills such as CPR, students must complete an in-person “skills session” in addition to online learning. A skills session is comprised of Part 2, skills practice, and Part 3, skills testing.

This three-part delivery effectively blends cognitive learning with skills training. Students are not able to experience the delivery of physical skills from a PC, so eLearning is only as effective as the skills training provided.

For successful course completion, AHA requires that eLearning courses with psychomotor skills include:

Part 1: online cognitive lessons—anytime and anywhere with computer access
Part 2: hands-on skills practice
Part 3: hands-on skills testing

A skills session is the hands-on portion of an AHA eLearning course and includes Parts 2 and 3 — skills practice and testing. It is conducted in-person after a student completes Part 1 online.

Depending on the course, skills sessions are conducted by AHA BLS Instructors, or Heartsaver® Skills Evaluators™. Skills sessions (conducted only by SAFETY NJ instructors) may be bundled with the purchase of an online (Part 1) course key.

Advanced Bleeding Control

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic injury is one of the leading causes of death for people under 50 years of age in the United States. A large portion of those deaths are from severe bleeding – the most treatable cause of death due to trauma.

MEDIC First Aid’s Advanced Bleeding Control is designed to provide detailed information on the control of severe external bleeding, including the use of direct pressure, commercial pressure bandages, tourniquets and packed dressings.

Perfect For

Advanced Bleeding Control is designed for groups and individuals who have a greater than average chance of witnessing an injury event in which heavy bleeding occurs and professional medical care is not readily available or is overwhelmed, such as law enforcement, private security, workplace emergency response team personnel and staff at large events, campuses or large occupied buildings.
