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.

 

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

If you have been participating in RQI, please note your AHA card expires two years from your last completed activity. Please check your ecard for expiration date before you register for an AHA class.
