Swank Healthcare Announces New Offering of Additional American Heart Association's Accredited Online Courses
St. Louis, MO, May 20, 2013 -- Swank HealthCare is excited to announce the availability of continuing education credits for the American Heart Association courses: Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED Online Part 1 Course and Acute Stroke Online. Among its comprehensive continuing education and continuing medical education (CE/CME) offerings, Swank HealthCare also offers American Heart Association online courses to help hospital professionals fulfill requirements relating to emergency preparedness skills and update cardiovascular care training skills.
Online education provides the convenience, flexibility and cost-saving benefits that live event training does not offer. According to the American Heart Association, 27% of learning departments report they are switching classroom learning to eLearning due to changing economic conditions. The eLearning experience has not only helped maximize training budgets, but it is also proven to enhance the retention rate of learning by 25–60%. A higher retention of content is probable, given the flexibility in individual learning styles that technology permits.
Swank HealthCare has offered online versions of Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED Part 1 Course and Acute Stroke to participants for over a year and is pleased to now offer customers the additional benefit of the following accreditations:
The Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED Online Part 1 Course is worth 1.50 credit hours and is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).
The Acute Stroke Online Course is worth 1.50 contact hours for physicians (The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education), nurses (American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation) and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel (Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS)).
