Course Format 
 
SIEMT is an AHA approved training center for CPR, ACLS, and PALS provider and instructor programs.  We conduct training at our Staten Island location and at numerous other sites throughout the city, including your location, site, or facility.  The courses can be delivered in a traditional classroom setting incorporating video and hands-on maniken practice, or you may choose to study and master the cognitive portion of a curriculum online using web based tools.  After completing the online learning modules, you will need to complete an in-person skills session with an instructor.
 
Depending on course content, eLearning courses are delivered in one, two, or three parts.  Courses that only involve cognitive learning can be completed online in one part.  For courses that contain psychomotor skills such as CPR, students must complete an in-person skills session in addition to online learning.  A skills session is comprised of Part 2, skills practice, and Part 3, skills testing.
 
This three-part delivery effectively blends cognitive learning with skills training.  Students are not able to experience the delivery of physical skills from a PC, so eLearning is only as effective as the skills training provided.
 
For successful course completion, AHA requires that eLearning courses with psychomotor skills include:
 
Part 1: Online cognitive lessons--anytime and anywhere with computer access.
Part 2: hands-on skills practice.
Part 3: hands-on skill testing.
 
Course Keys
 
No matter the format, all online courses begin with a Key.  A key is a 12 digit alphanumeric code that is used to access purchased courses.  A key may be purchased directly by individuals, or training Centers and employers may purchase and distribute keys to the students who will complete training.
