Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) Initial and Recertification Provider Courses

Description

The Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Provider Recertification Course is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in resuscitation of a patient, in or out of the hospital setting. The goal of the ACLS Provider course is to improve the quality of care provided to the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergency. Students will practice the application of these and other skills in simulated cases, and will practice both team leader and team member roles.

Pre-requisite

Before the course, complete the mandatory Precourse Self-Assessment modules on the American Heart Association e-learning site.
