The target audience for the AHA/ECC course of Advance Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) includes physicians, nurses, dentist, Paaramedics, EMTs or other licensed healthcare providers who may direct or participate in either hospital or pre-hospital adult cardiovascular resuscitation care. This course focuses on the knowledge and skills necessary to provide care to the pre, peri, post arrest patient. The course core curriculum is based on the most recent American Heart Association CPR/ECC guidelines. The AHA guidelines are evidence based and contain recommendations designed to improve survival from cardiac arrest and life threatening cardiovascular problems.

Per the AHA, "The ACLS Provider Course does not teach algorithms, ECG rhythm recognition, or pharmacology. If you do not learn and understand the ECG and pharmacology information in the Precourse Self-Assessment, it is unlikely that you can successfully complete the ACLS Provider Course."

HeartCode® ACLS is an official, self-directed, comprehensive eLearning program from the American Heart Association (AHA). HeartCode® ACLS Part 1 uses eSimulation technology to present realistic patient scenarios. Students are presented with a team dynamics lesson, 10 ACLS hospital-based case scenarios, and a written exam. While interacting with the program, students assess each patient, formulate a treatment plan based on ACLS guidelines, and provide treatment. Successful completion of Part 1, the cognitive component, and Parts 2 and 3, skills practice and testing with an AHA ACLS Instructor or a voice-assisted manikin (VAM) system, meets the requirements for obtaining an AHA ACLS Provider course completion card.

 

Skills testing must be completed within 60 calendar days of completing the computer based cognitive portion, indicated as the completion date on the certificate.

Upon successful completion of the online portion, including the written exam, students are to print the Part 1 certificate of completion, which must be presented to the instructor before parts 2 and 3 can be completed. 

• Part 2*, a hands-on skills practice session with an AHA ACLS Instructor or using a voice-assisted manikin (VAM) system
• Part 3*, a skills test with an AHA ACLS Instructor or using a VAM system

*Parts 2 and 3 will be completed in one “skills practice and testing” session.

Students will receive an AHA ACLS course completion card, valid for two years, upon successful completion of all three parts.
