AHA BLS Option 1: Virtual Skills Testing

The American Heart Association® has authorized Virtual Skills Testing (VST) until the threat of the COVID-19 outbreak is over.

This is the same process that has always been used for anyone completing the American Heart Association® Heartcode™ online courses that requires a skills testing session prior to receiving your card. The difference is now you can do it from home “virtually” on your tablet or computer.

  1. The American Heart Association® Heartcode™ online course must be completed prior to your Virtual Skills Testing (VST) session (minimum of 7 days).
  2. A few days before your appointment, a package will arrive with your required equipment.
    • Included: AHA skills checklists. 
  3. On the day of your appointment, you will receive an email (about 5-10 minutes prior to appointment time) with a link to the Virtual Skills Testing (VST) “Zoom Meeting”.
  4. During the session, you will be asked to demonstrate the same skills as the in-person sessions in the past.
  5. Please have all of the skills testing equipment ready, along with your skills checklists.
  6. You will receive a pre-paid label to use to send the package back with all the original contents.
  7. You will receive your American Heart Association® ecard (same card you have always received) within 1 business day after receipt of the returned package.
