AHA HeartCode Courses

* Interim guidance on BREMSS Heartcode Skills Testing in relation to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Effective immediately all HeartCode Skills assessments will be scheduled on a limited, as needed basis and will take place at the discretion of BREMSS staff. In conjunction with guidance released by the AHA concerning card expirations, the BREMSS TC will require documentation from the student’s employer stating they will not recognize the date extensions outlined by the AHA. If you feel you meet the requirements for a skills test please email bremssctc@uab.edu/ 

Online Learning + Skills Session

= Lives Saved

What seperates AHA courses from others?

Everything we do is is backed by research and we believe all healthcare certifications require that “hands-on” component.

Our Skills Sessions take place with seasoned healthcare professionals. We can accommodate small groups as well as one-on-one sessions. Contact us to setup your Skills Session?


BREMSS conducts the skills testing portion of the AHA HeartCode courses by appointment. Click on the course below for more information about the HeartCode process.
