RQI (Resuscitation Quality Improvement) Program
The American Heart AssociationⒸ and Safety Training Seminars now offer RQI PALS skills testing. Students will skills test with a VAM (voice assisted manikin). During the skills testing, an instructor will not be present, since the manikin and computer will guide you through your skills. Initial or renewal students can take this PALS course. You must complete the online course before your skills testing. Performing CPR on a manikin or a real person is physically exhausting. By registering for a class, you understand that performing chest compressions on the manikin can hurt your hands, wrists, arms, or body. If you have preexisiting problems with your wrists (pain, carpal tunnel, weakness, or injury), we suggest you take the regular instructor led classroom course. The manikins are exactly the same, but the live instructor can sometimes work around your physical issues.
The online courses are sent out each day by the end of the business day. If you register for a course after 4 pm, you will receive it the next day. If you register on a Friday after 4 pm, you will receive it on Monday.
- Check your junk mail folder.
- Are you with UCSF? These usually take 2 days, since your department has to approve your course.
- If you have not received your online course in more than a day, then contact us.
There are absolutely no refunds after you register and pay for the course, since the AHA does not refund for courses once they are started. However, you can reschedule by paying the $25 fee each time you need to reschedule.
