The Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI)® Program is a program from the American Heart Association that delivers quarterly training to support mastery of high-quality CPR skills. With RQI, healthcare providers have the confidence and competency to respond with life-saving patient care.

Low-dose, high-frequency education

Instead of time-intensive training classes every year and away from the bedside, the RQI program is conducted directly at the point of care and in short quarterly sessions on the provider’s schedule.

Self-directed, feedback-driven, and adaptive learning

Skills sessions are completed at an RQI Simulation Station with audiovisual, directive feedback. eLearning components can be accessed on a variety of devices and feature an innovative algorithm that adapts education in real time to each learner’s level of expertise.

The Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI) program will verify your competence each quarter through both eLearning cognitive assessment activities and skills sessions. The cognitive assessment activities will ask you to apply cognitive knowledge by treating a patient within the steps of an algorithm.

The RQI simulation station will provide you with real-time, audiovisual, directive feedback as you proceed through both ventilations and compressions on an adult and infant manikin. An immediate debrief will score you on hand placement, rate, recoil, chest compression fraction, and depth of compressions, as well as ventilation feedback.

Successfully completing the RQI course will provide you with an eCredential that verifies you have demonstrated competence in the gold standard of High-Quality CPR mastery by the American Heart Association.
