This advanced course highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care, and immediate post-cardiac arrest care.

Skills are taught in large-group sessions and small-group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios are presented.

The ACLS course covers:

  • ACLS algorithms
  • immediate post-cardiac-arrest care
  • airway management
  • rhythm recognition
  • high-quality CPR
  • 1-rescuer CPR AED
  • effective resuscitation team dynamics
  • science overview (update course)
  • BLS and ACLS surveys
  • ACS
  • Megacode treatment
  • identification and initial care of other life-threatening clinical situations (such as stroke)

ACLS training is intended for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, whether in or out of the hospital, including:

  • physicians
  • nurses
  • emergency medical technicians 
  • paramedics
  • staff in intensive care units and emergency or critical care departments 
  • other professionals who may respond to a cardiovascular emergency

Students must pass a written exam and skills test in order to qualify for an ACLS Course Completion Card.

To be successful in any ACLS course, students should be able to identify ECG rhythms and should know pharmacology specific to cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiopulmonary emergencies before beginning the course. It is strongly recommended that students review the ACLS course materials and complete a precourse self-assessment using the tools in their student materials before starting the course.
