The American Heart Association's Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support course is designed to update healthcare providers on the skills necessary for the resuscitation of an adult patient. Through didactic lecture and hands on practice in simulated scenarios, providers will enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiovascular emergency.

ACLS emphasizes the importance of basic life support for patient survival including the integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation.

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.

This course is intended for healthcare providers with clinical responsibilities in critical care areas including nurses, physicians, paramedics, respiratory therapists, physician's assistants, residents or fellows, and medical or nursing students in training that have previously completed an ACLS course.

All participants must have a current Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers certification to participate in this course. Participants may complete the Online BLS for Healthcare Providers course and complete the skills testing portion during your ACLS course - simply select this option during the registration process.

Successful completion of this course results in an American Heart Association Advanced Cardiac Life Support certification card which is valid for 2 years from the date of the course.

Includes an American Heart Association Advanced Cardiac Life Support Provider student workbook, a pocket mask and two-year American Heart Association ACLS Provider eCard certification.

A certification exam is completed at the end of this program. Proficient demonstration of ACLS skills and a score of 84% or higher on the written examination are required for certification. Students that do not achieve either of these will be remediated and allowed an additional attempt to test.
