Class Schedule

AHA Courses only: Registered participants must complete the HeartCode BLS, ACLS, PALS, or Heartsaver online eLearning module from the American Heart Association before attending the hands-on practice/testing session.  These courses can be found by going to Hover over the course drop-down menu at the top of the webpage to purchase your Heartcode eLearning module (excludes UK-COM students).



The AHA’s Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED course trains participants to provide first aid, CPR, and use an automated external defibrillator (AED) in a safe, timely, and effective manner. Reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).

This course is intended for select programs and registration for this course is by invitation only. If you are a NKU student enrolled in a health profession program that requires a BLS certification, please register for the BLS for healthcare providers course. 

This ACLS certification course is intended for UK College of Medicine students only. All other students in need of an ACLS certification should enroll in the ACLS Certification - Advanced Cardiac Life Support course. 


All AHA courses offered by the Northern Kentucky University Center for Simulation Education utilize a hybrid learning model. Upon registration, learners will be provided with a key code for an online AHA module that will take approximately 4 hours to complete. Learners will also attend a skills testing class where they will be assessed on ACLS technical skills, teamwork, and critical decision making. 

Due to current COVID-19 guidelines at NKU, masks are required at all times while indoors. Please remember to bring a mask and wear it when entering the building.
