ADVANCED CARDIAC LIFE SUPPORT (ACLS) CERTIFICATION
Respond First Medical Training provides an American Heart Association (AHA) Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certification course. Understanding and activating the systems of care developed by the AHA can help improve survival rates and may even prevent cardiac arrest. You will be issued an official AHA ACLS provider card upon successful completion of the course. The ACLS certification course is designed to teach and provide the skills necessary to evaluate and manage adult cardiovascular emergencies. The course requires that students participate in lecture, learning stations, review stations and skills testing scenarios. The ACLS course will train you to manage a person’s airway, initiate intravenous access, read and interpret electrocardiograms, and understand emergency pharmacology.
Although a Basic Life Support (BLS) CPR card is not required for the course, your proficiency in Adult BLS for healthcare providers will be reviewed and evaluated as part of the ACLS Provider Course. This course is designed for pediatricians, emergency physicians, family physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare providers who initiate and direct advanced life support in pediatric emergencies. You must pass online pre-test and present certificate at time of course.
The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in BLS, ACLS, and PALS and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the American Heart Association. Any fees charged for this course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course material, do not represent income to the AHA.
