Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
The American Heart Association ACLS program is a course designed for healthcare professionals required to respond to cardiac emergencies. Course modules include:
- Recognition and management and of cardiac and respiratory arrest
- Management of stroke and ACS
- Team member communication
Basic life support skills will be tested in class, but students will not be issued a BLS certification card (to enroll in a BLS class visit our enrollment page). Students must have a basic understanding of rhythms and pharmacology associated with ACLS. Students will be evaluated performing a MegaCode at the end of the course. The 2020 AHA ACLS Provider Manual, as well as the AHA online pre-course test (both required), will prepare students for this ACLS program. The 2020 AHA ACLS Provider Manual can be purchased during the course enrollment process. Please bring your book and its contents to class - you are able to use these materials for the exam. AHA ACLS cards will be issued at the completion of class and are good for two years.
Required Course Preparation
In addition to studying your AHA ACLS Provider Manual, please complete the following:
- Complete the Pre-Course Assessment. Students must achieve a score of 70% or greater, print out the test results, and bring them to class. Students who do not have their printed test results with them will not be eligible to take the class.
- Study the supplementary material and additional 4 videos on the AHA ACLS Student Website.
