Cook Children's is dedicated to your well-being.

Currently, we are not offering any American Heart Association Family and Friends CPR courses.

We have also temporarily suspended all HeartCode courses with the exception of our New Hire HeartCode BLS, PALS and ACLS courses for Health Care providers.

We hope to be able to safely offer these courses again soon.

The Education Department at Cook Children's offers a variety of American Heart Association courses to meet the needs of health care professionals and the community.

Family and Friends CPR

This course is an introduction to performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on adults, children, and infants. Relief of choking and use of an AED are also covered. This is a non-certification course. For more information about this course, please click the title in the course list below. If you have questions, please call the Simulation Program at 682-885-1137 or email simulationlab@cookchildrens.org.

HeartCode courses

HeartCode is a two-part program that blends self-directed, comprehensive e-learning via the internet with a hands-on skills check off. All HeartCode programs consist of two phases:

  • Part 1 is the self-directed, e-learning portion required prior to moving on to Part 2.
  • Part 2 is the skills verification required for the certification completion. To register for your skills check-off day, please select the appropriate course from the list below.

We offer HeartCode ACLS, HeartCode BLS, and Heart Code PALS. For more information about these courses, please click the title in the course list below. The AHA will not authorize any core curriculum changes in a course identified as an AHA ECC course. A student must be able to successfully perform all course requirements (skills tests and written exams) to receive a course completion card. If you have questions or require ADA accommodations for course completion, please call the Simulation Program at 682-885-1137 or email simulationlab@cookchildrens.org.

The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in BLS, ACLS, and PALS and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the American Heart Association. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course material, do not represent income to the Association.
