The American Heart Association (AHA) defines Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) as an algorithmic series of medical procedures and techniques designed for the urgent treatment of cardiac arrest, stroke and similar life threatening cardiac emergencies. ACLS expands upon basic life support with more advanced skills such as defibrillation, IV use, intubation, and ECG analysis. Many hospitals and other medical facilities require this advanced training for anyone who may be working with cardiac patients.
We also offer ACLS recertifications. Certifications are valid for two years. You must remain current on the changing guidelines and procedures. This is especially true for ACLS due to the hands-on method and technical knowledge involved.
This class is open to healthcare professionals, and you must have a BLS certification. Please plan to bring a lunch with you.
