The American Heart Association’s Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) is an advanced course that highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac-arrest care. It also covers airway management and related pharmacology.
ACLS Course Options
HeartCode®ACLS: Self-paced Online Learning
This online course provides an alternative training solution for the busy professional. A web-based, self-paced instructional program that uses eSimulation technology to allow students to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. In this environment, students apply their knowledge to real-time decision-making and skills development.
After completing the online course, students will be scheduled to practice and test their skills with one of our instructors and upon successful completion of the skills test students receive a course completion card.
Traditional Classroom Learning
100% classroom training means students are with an AHA instructor for their entire learning experience. Providers enhance their skills in treating adult victims of cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies.
Candidates must have a current Basic Life Support CPR card when they register.
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, and any fees charged for such a course do not represent income to the Association.
