Advanced Cardiac Life Support
Offered 3 Ways 

Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
Initial Course

AHA’s ACLS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2016 American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. This course builds on the foundation of lifesaving BLS skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR.
This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
Course Content:
Basic life support skills, including effective chest compression, use of a bag-mask device, and use of an AED
Recognition and early management of respiratory and cardiac arrest
Recognition and early management of peri-arrest conditions such as symptomatic bradycardia
Airway management
Related pharmacology
Management of ACS and stroke
Effective communication as a member and leader of a resuscitation team. 

Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
Renewal Course

The Basic Life Support (BLS) Providers Classroom Renewal Course is designed to provide a wide variety of healthcare professionals the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.
 American Heart Association BLS for Healthcare Providers Course Completion Card is valid for two years.

Heartcode ACLS

Blended Learning (online portion, followed by hands-on skills session) HeartCode ACLS uses a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, team dynamics training, mega code cases, and interactive activities to teach students ACLS knowledge and skills.

HeartCode ACLS is the AHA’s ACLS blended learning delivery method. Blended learning is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner, followed by a hands-on skills session.

Complete the online portion + hands-on skills session with an AHA Instructor, or with a Simulation Station or voice-assisted manikin (VAM)

The online portion of HeartCode ACLS can be completed in 6.5 to 7 hours.

Time to complete the hands-on skills session is approximately 5 hours using the full agenda, and approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes using the update course agenda.

To enter the course, students must complete the ACLS Pre-course Self-Assessment.
Students are then presented with an enhanced learning experience through eSimulations, life-like animations, video scenarios, and knowledge checks.
Cases may be repeated as many times as necessary to pass. Upon successful completion of all the patient cases, students must pass the multiple-choice exam with a minimum score of 84%.
Web-based, self-paced eSimulation instructional program for ACLS cognitive training.
Students apply knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development
Debriefings and coaching are provided immediately after each simulation to facilitate learning.
