For new providers or to review material
This two-day ACLS course is designed for healthcare professionals whose occupation requires proficiency in ACLS skills. It is appropriate for providers with some knowledge of cardiac rhythms and pharmacology but who have not taken ACLS education in the past, for those whose cards have expired, or who would like a review of the guidelines. This course includes skills testing and a written evaluation.
You should prepare for the course by doing the following:
- Review the course agenda.
- Review and understand the information in your ACLS Provider Manual. Pay particular attention to the 10 cases in Part 5.
- The resuscitation scenarios require that your BLS skills and knowledge are current with the latest (2015) guidelines. Competency testing for 1-rescuer adult CPR and AED skills will take place at the beginning of the ACLS Provider Course. Participants are expected to come into the course proficient in these skills.
- Review, understand, and complete the ECG and Pharmacology Precourse Self-Assessment. This class will not teach reading or interpretation of ECGs nor basic pharmacology.
- Evidence of Precourse Self-Assessment completion is required to participate in the course. A certificate may be printed and presented at the course or screen shots are also accepted.
If you would like to renew your BLS certification, please contact the CTC Office (206-744-5027 or email@example.com) to make arrangements. Preparation and additional fees apply.
