Advanced Cardiac Life Support

Our updated Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) course is based on simulated clinical scenarios that encourage active hands-on participation.

Realistic simulations will reinforce:

  • Proficiency in Basic Life Support (BLS) 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-threatining clinical situations (such as stroke) and providing initial care
  • ACLS algorithms
  • Effective resuscitation team dynamics

At the end of the course, students will participate in a megacode station to validate and test various skill sets. This new ACLS course improves the quality of care provided to the adult victim of cardiac arrest or cardiopulmonary emergencies.

Course Length: 
  • Full Provider Approximately 14-16 hours
  • Update Course Approximately 8 hours
  • Must have current AHA BLS for Healthcare Provider Card
  • ACLS Update candidates must have a current AHA ACLS Provider Card
  • Copies of curent AHA certification cards are required before the start of class for ALL students. 
  • MUST Complete PreCourse Test (completed online) PRIOR to the Course with a score NO LOWER THAN 70%.  
  • Information on web access to the Pre-Course Test is provided in the ACLS Course Manual and at our business office during normal business hours.
  • Students coming into class without the PreCourse Test Results at 70% or higher will not be permitted in the course.
  • Students coming to class without proper current AHA BLS and/or ACLS Provider cards will not be permitted in the course.
