The ACLS course builds on the foundation of lifesaving Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, and immediate post-cardiac arrest care, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS). ACLS also covers airway management and related pharmacology.
Skills are taught in large-group sessions and small-group learning and testing stations with simulated clinical case scenarios that encourages active participation. Reinforcement of skills proficiency is achieved through ‘Hands-on class’ format- a better option than online courses.
ACLS course covers:

Last-minute registrations will cause a problem as students will not have enough time to complete the pre-course materials and may have to be rescheduled in order to participate fully in the course.
This assessment can only be taken on a PC Mac/Win, you are required to print out your results and bring them with you to class to present them to your instructor. failure to do so may require your class be rescheduled until you are compliant.
We have also included the link below to the American Heart Association’s Student Website:
