The Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) Provider course is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrests or other cardiovascular emergencies. In this Instructor-led course, which includes active participation in simulated cases, students will enhance their skills in the recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardia arrest, acute arrhythmia, stroke and acute coronary syndromes (ACS). The goal of the ACLS Provider course is to improve outcomes for adult patients of cardiac arrest and other cardiopulmonary emergencies through early recognition and interventions by high-performance teams.
The ACLS provider course covers extensive material in a short period of time, therefore you need to prepare for the course beforehand. Prior knowledge of BLS, ECG rhythm interpretation, basic drug and pharmacology is neccessary as it will not be taught during this class.
During the course students must pass a written exam and skills tests in order to receive an AHA ACLS completion card. The completion card is valid for 2 years.
A pre-course Self-Assesment with a minimum score of 70% is required for this course. You need to bring your Self-Assesment Certificate with you to the class room.
