What is covered in an ACLS course?

The American Heart Association’s ACLS Course builds on the foundation of lifesaving BLS for Healthcare Providers skills, emphasizing
the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. This advanced, instructor-led classroom course highlights the importance of team
dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac-arrest care. The ACLS course also covers airway
management and related pharmacology.
In the ACLS Course, skills are taught in large, group sessions and small, group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios
are presented. Successful course completion includes demonstrating skills competency in all learning stations and passing the CPR
and AED skills test, bag-mask ventilation skills test, a Megacode test and a written test. Upon successful completion, students receive an ACLS Provider card, valid for two years.
