ACLS Experienced Provider


The goal of the ACLS Experienced Provider Course is to improve outcomes in complex cardiovascular, respiratory, and other (eg: metabolic, toxicologic, etc.) emergencies by expanding on core ACLS guidelines and encouraging critical thinking and decision-making strategies. Through instruction and active participation in case-based scenarios, you will enhance your skills in the differential diagnosis and treatment of pre-arrest, arrest, and post-arrest patients. You must already have a current ACLS provider card to enroll. This course is designed for individuals who have recertified in ACLS at least twice in the past. After registering for the course, you will receive information on how to purchase an access code so you can complete the online learning modules and successfully pass the ACLS online written exam. Once completed, print the certificate off and bring it with you to your class.

$150 per participant
