American Heart Association Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) is an advanced, instructor-led classroom course that highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac-arrest care. They also cover airway management and related pharmacology.
In this initial, full certification classroom-based course, providers enhance their skills in treating adult victims of cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies, while earning their American Heart Association ACLS Providers Course Completion Card.
The AHA Advanced Cardiac Life Support ACLS Course is designed for healthcare providers who conduct or participates in resuscitation of patients in hospital, medical offices, or in settings where conscious sedation is administered. It covers identification and treatment of patients with medical conditions who are at risk for cardiac arrest, primary and secondary assessment survey and actions needed, algorithms for treatment of emergency situations and effective resuscitation team dynamics.
Although arrhythmia recognition will be reviewed, it is expected that the participant will have a working knowledge of EKG rhythms. Practice with defibrillators and external pacemaker is included.
The Advanced Cardiac Life Support, or ACLS Course also teaches management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and stroke, the management of respiratory and cardiac arrest, CPR, effective chest compressions and ventilation with a bag mask device (BVM) and the use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator).
Advanced Cardiac Life Support ACLS is designed for healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units.

Hands-on class format reinforces skills proficiency

AHA offers Continuing Education credits through CECBEMS for EMS students who have successfully completed the ACLS Provider classroom course. CECBEMS is a national provider of continuing education credits for EMS professionals only. Because the continuing education approval process for nurses and physicians is much more involved, CME/CE credit for these professions will not be available through the AHA at this time.
Continuing education credit will continue to be offered for multiple professions for completion of the HeartCode® ACLS Part 1 program.
