How to Get Ready
The ACLS Provider Course is designed to teach you the lifesaving skills required to be both a team member and a team leader in either an in-hospital or an out-of-hospital setting.
Because the ACLS Provider Course covers extensive material in a short time, you will need to prepare for the course beforehand.
You should prepare for the course by doing the following:
1. You will need to purchase the provider manual and
bring it with you to class.
2. Complete the pre-course preparation checklist that
came with your ACLS Provider Manual.
3. Review and understand the information in your ACLS
Provider Manual. Pay particular attention to the 10
cases in Part 5.
4. The resuscitation scenarios require that your BLS
skills and knowledge are current. You will be tested
on 1-rescuer adult CPR and AED skills at the
beginning of the ACLS Provider Course.
5. Review, understand, and complete the ECG and
Pharmacology Pre-course Self-Assessment on the
Student Website (www.heart.org/eccstudent). The code
to enter is "acls"
6. Print your scores for the Pre-course Self-Assessment and bring it with you to class. You need a passing score of at least 84%. This online pre-test is free and can immediately be retaken as many times as you need.
7. If you don't get the chance to do the Pre-course checklist, don't
freak out! LOL ! It's not requried. So if you have a broken printer
it's still ok. You can take a picture and text it to me, or just don't
do the pretest at all. IF you don't study at all, you'll still ACE the
test!!!! So don't stress! If you're an over achiever and just can't
stand it, use the study guide. The most important part is going to
be the drugs and algorithms and we'll still go over them in class.
How class will start..
We will begin the class on with introductions, locations for water and
restrooms and then watch videos. Between each video we will
discuss the highlights and answer any questions. Most of the first half of
the day will be videos, and hands on practice and testing for BLS.
After lunch we will watch a few videos and spend the rest of the day
learning the drugs, algorithms and doing hands on practice through
several scenarios running a code using the drugs, defibrillator and
monitor. When everyone feels comfortable and all questions have
been answered, then we will distribute the written test. There are
50 questions (2 points each). The minimum passing score is 84%.
Don't spend the next 24 hours studying like crazy, and don't spend
hours and hours going over the study sheets. If you are an over
achiever and just can't stand not being prepared, then read over
the material ONCE. Only once. We are going to go over everything
in class until you feel like you are an expert and beg me to stop
talking LOL !!!
We will provide coffee and chocolate, and we're going to have
FUN !!!!!!!!!!! This is a stress free, laid back, fun environment !
So don't stress, and I promise you will ACE THE TEST !!!!
What to Bring and What to Wear
Bring your ACLS Provider Manual to each class. You will need it during each lesson in the course.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing to class. You will be practicing skills that require you to work on your hands and knees, and the course requires bending, standing, and lifting. If you have any physical condition that might prevent you from engaging in these activities, please tell an instructor. The instructor may be able to adjust the equipment if you have back, knee, or hip problems.
Once you sign up for class I will send you a confirmation email and study guide. If you send me an email and request it, I will email it to you as well. It's free for the study guide : )
We look forward to welcoming you on May 1, 2015 at 9:00 AM.
If you have any questions about the course, please call, text or email : )
Have an AWESOME DAY !
