AHA ACLS Renewal

Course Description

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 course highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac-arrest care. 

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.

Cognitive learning

  1. An AHA Instructor may administer the cognitive learning portion of the course virtually in either of the following ways:
  2. The Instructor may conduct a live course, including all required course videos, via web conferencing software while students watch and discuss remotely.
  3. The Training Center may video-record a course led by an AHA Instructor, including all required course videos, and post the recording for students to view on a learning management system (LMS) or other secure site.
