- How to identify and address the signs of cardiac arrest
- How to manage the airway
- Medication terms, definitions, and dosages
- How to manage stroke and acute coronary syndromes
- How to work as part of a resuscitation team.
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 such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course material, do not represent income to the Association.
Important for the Class:
Students must know how to read ECG rhythms as well as properly identify the appropriate medication and doses for patients.
Online ACLS certification training can be completed same-day and upon successful course completion, students receive a certification card that is valid for two years.
Once those two years are up, recertification is required.
