Columbia Safety provides official American Heart Association ACLS Certification Classes. Upon successful course completion you will be issued an official AHA ACLS provider card.

The American Heart Association Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support course is totally redesigned to incorporate new science evidence from the 2015 Guidelines and a new teaching methodology. Through the ACLS course, healthcare providers will enhance their skills in the treatment of the adult victim of a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies. ACLS empahsizes the importance of basic life support CPR to patient survival; integration of effective basic life support with advanced cardiovascular life support interventions; and the importance of effective team interaction and communication during resuscitation.

This two-day offering is suitable for emergency, intensive care, or critical care healthcare providers such as physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, paramedics, and other professionals who may need to respond to cardiovascular emergencies who currently do not hold a current ACLS Provider card.

 
  
Precourse Requirements
 
You must pick up a ACLS BOOK From Columbia Safety Before the Class or Have a book provided for you from your own facility.

You should prepare for the course by doing the following:

  • Complete the precourse preparation checklist that came with your ACLS Provider Manual. Bring the checklist with you to the course.
  • Review and understand the information in your ACLS Provider Manual. Pay particular attention to the 10 cases in Part 5.
  • The resuscitation scenarios require that your BLS skills and knowledge are current. You will be tested on 1-rescuer adult CPR and AED skills at the beginning of the ACLS Provider Course. You must know this in advance, since you will not be taught how to do CPR or how to use an AED. 
  • Review, understand, and complete the ECG and Pharmacology Precourse Self-Assessment on the Student Website (www.heart.org/eccstudent). You will not be taught how to read or interpret ECGs in the course, nor will you be taught details about ACLS pharmacology.
  • Print your scores for the Pre-course Self-Assessment and bring them with you to class.


Optional Materials

ACLS Provider Manual 57.00
ECC Spiral Handbook 40.00



Per current AHA program administration guidelines, A BLS CPR card is NOT required for this course, but you must be proficient in Adult BLS for healthcare provider skills and your skills will be reviewed and evaluated as part of the ACLS Provider Course. BLS certification is not included with ACLS course registration. Students that are not confident in their BLS CPR Skills should register for a CPR for Healthcare Provider Course prior to attending the ACLS Course. Many ACLS courses offered through Columbia Safety include an option to renew your BLS/CPR for Healthcare Providers credential. You may see an option to purchase this as a  BLS CPR Online Part 1 w/ Skills Verification. 

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.

ACLS Key is NON-REFUNDABLE

This course from the American Heart Association has been updated to reflect new science based on the 2015 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC.

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.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  1. Recognize and initiate early management of periarrest conditions that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome

  2. Demonstrate proficiency in providing BLS care, including prioritizing chest compressions and integrating automated external defibrillator (AED) use

  3. Recognize and manage respiratory arrest

  4. Recognize and manage cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation or transfer of care, including immediate post–cardiac arrest care

  5. Recognize and initiate early management of acute coronary syndromes, including appropriate disposition

  6. Recognize and initiate early management of stroke, including appropriate disposition

  7. Demonstrate effective communication as a member or leader of a resuscitation team and recognize the impact of team dynamics on overall team performance

This continuing education activity is certified for physicians (ACCME/AMA), nurses (ANCC), pharmacists (ACPE), and EMS Practitioners (CECBEMS).

The American Heart Association designates this enduring material for a maximum of 9.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the
extent of their participation in the activity.

This course has been tested on Windows XP and Mac OSX, with Internet Explorer 7+ or Firefox 2+. HeartCode programs are not supported by Apple Safari.

A Skills Session with an Instructor is required to receive your ACLS Provider Card.
