How Online Education Can Help You Become a Lifesaver

The skills and knowledge required to save a life can seem complex and intimidating without years of medical school or specific training. The revolution in online education is bringing opportunities to learn anything to people everywhere, including the education necessary to save a life. Modern healthcare education is evolving with new technology, making it accessible from the comfort of your home, office, or anywhere you have a high-speed internet connection.

Life support education has been available for fifty years, but until recently it has required spending an entire day or even two days in a classroom, taking you away from your daily routine. In an effort to bridge this accessibility gap, NHCPS has developed Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)Basic Life Support (BLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) certification online courses, delivered 100% online and free to anyone with Internet connection. The courses are designed by physicians and adhere to the most recent American Heart Association Guidelines.

Now, NHCPS’ newest course, CPR, AED & First Aid, is the world’s first online CPR course, teaching 8 fundamental lessons. Each lesson includes comprehensive visuals, including videos, graphs and step-by-step images, along with lectures that can be paused and reviewed at the student’s inclination. Along with the online lesson, students enrolled will receive a complete PDF manual, which follows the entire lesson accordingly. All NHCPS courses are enhanced with study resources such as online practice testing and specific knowledge assessments.

The CPR, AED & First Aid course teaches students the essentials of life-saving practices. The 8 lessons cover: First Aid, Medical Problems, Injuries and Trauma, Environmental Injuries and Illnesses, and CPR & AED for Adults, Children and Infants. Enrolled students will learn everything from simple wound cleaning procedures to saving a choking victim using the Heimlich maneuver.  The total course, aside from review material and the final course exam, may be completed by experienced providers in less than an hour, however no on-site training or prior knowledge and testing are required. A final exam leading to formal certification is available for purchase after course completion through NHCPS. After successfully completing the online final exam, students will receive a customized certification card which can be downloaded and printed immediately, as well as a paper card shipped next business day.

NHCPS also offers newly improved and redesigned ACLS, BLS and PALS courses for more advanced healthcare professionals. These too are taught and designed by real practicing physicians and adhere to the latest AHA guidelines and standards. There has never been an easier and more convenient way to fulfill any certification need or requirement in the fast-paced world of healthcare. Completing any of NHCPS’s openlearning.com courses will give all students the experience and skill to save lives while improving their own.
