Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support Course
ACLS is an advanced, instructor-led classroom course that highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac-arrest care. It also covers airway management and related pharmacology. In this course, skills are taught in large, group sessions and small, group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios are presented.
This course is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, and paramedics, as well as others who need an ACLS course completion card for job or other requirements.
This continuing education activity is approved by the American Heart Association, an organization accredited by the CAPCE (Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education), for 5.25 Advanced CEHs, activity number 14-AMHA-F2-0224
All Instructors are current AHA ACLS/BLS Certified Instructors.
AHA ACLS Course Completion Card is valid for two years.
