ACLS - Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support
This course is designed primarily for healthcare professionals in emergency departments, intensive care units, critical care departments, surgical areas, or pre-hospital environments, such as physicians, nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other professionals who may respond to a cardiovascular emergency. The ACLS Provider course provides the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate and manage the first 10 minutes of an adult ventricular fibrillation/ventricular tachycardia (VF/VT) arrest, symptomatic bradyarrhythmia, tachyarrhythmia, acute coronary syndrome, and acute ischemic stroke.
The update class is a one day class for students with current ACLS provider cards. The certification class is offered as a popular extended one day class or traditional two day class, depending upon student preference. Your testing schedule will be arranged on the day of your class.
The ACLS Study Guide will be e-mailed to you following registration for your ACLS class.
ECG & Pharmacology is an excellent course to take prior to ACLS and is recommended for first time ACLS students. If your license or background has not provided you with ECG or Pharmacology training and application, or if you need to review and expand your knowledge, we suggest that you complete the ECG & Pharmacology class prior to taking ACLS for successful completion.
PLEASE NOTE: BLS RENEWAL CAN BE ADDED ON TO ANY ACLS CLASS DURING YOUR REGISTRATION PROCESS. This allows you to get both cards on the same day while only completing the additional material not covered in the ACLS class, written test and additional skills testing, following your ACLS class. In order to qualify for this option, you must be able to show a current BLS provider card. We will provide a study guide and review to assist you.
PRIVATE TUTORING: One hour of private tutoring can be scheduled on most days prior to the start of the class. The tutoring starts 2 hours prior to class time. One hour of individualized tutoring and class prep with the instructor is followed by one hour of individual study time for the student. There is a charge of $60 for this option. Call the office at 626-441-3406 to schedule.
