These AHA courses are open to all healthcare providers and students who need this certification.

 

If you are a CCHMC employee and considered CORE, the institution will waive course fees.  For Non-CORE employees, you may take the course and pay with credit card or have the fees cross charged to your primary department.

 

What is CORE?
CORE consist of CCHMC employees who are a part of the Code Team or work in the PICU/CICU/Periop/ED. Locations where a code team does not respond that you might be expected to manage a patient while waiting for 9-1-1, i.e. Urgent Cares.

 

If you are unsure if your department falls under CORE please contact Simulation Center before registering.

 

**Learners are to only be enrolled in one AHA route, either a traditional AHA class at the Simulation Center or through RQI.  If a learner is sign up for a traditional PALS/ACLS class at the Sim Center while being enrolled in RQI, their department will be charged for the course at the Sim Center**
