ACLS is based on simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active, hands-on participation through learning stations where students will practice essential skills individually, as part of a team, and as team leader. Realistic simulations reinforce the following key concepts: proficiency in basic life support care; recognizing and initiating early management of peri-arrest conditions; managing cardiac arrest; identifying and treating ischemic chest pain and acute coronary syndromes; recognizing other life threatening clinical situations (such as stroke) and providing initial care; ACLS algorithms; and effective resuscitation team dynamics.

The course is designed for medical providers such as physicians, nurses, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other professionals who may respond to a cardiovascular emergency.

A Current valid BLS for Healthcare Provider card is required to take this course.

If you need a current BLS for Healthcare Provider Certification:

1. Register for the BLS Online Course (E-Learning),complete the course, print the completion certificate, and notify us and you will get your skills checked off the day of this course.

2. Find a class prior to the ACLS Course

 

Recommended class:

ECG & Pharmacology and Mega Code are excellent courses to take prior to ACLS and is recommended for first time ACLS students. If your license or background has not provided you with ECG or Pharmacology training and application, or if you need to review and expand your knowledge, we suggest that you complete the ECG & Pharmacology and a Mega Code class prior to taking PALS for successful completion
