ACLS training goes beyond BLS (Basic Life Support) to provide a more comprehensive knowledge of advanced life support.

ACLS certification is a good choice if you are a healthcare professional who has not previously completed an ACLS course or if you want a more in-depth refresher. If you have held an active ACLS certification and are an experienced ACLS provider, you should sign up for our ACLS recertification class.

Course Description

The ACLS certification course covers the following:

  • BLS Primary Survey and ACLS Secondary Survey with critical actions
  • The important elements of effective resuscitation team dynamics
  • Clinical situations in which the following airway adjuncts may be used for airway management: oropharyngeal airway (OPA), nasopharyngeal airway (APC), bag-mask ventilation, and advanced airway
  • Recognizing VF and VT on the ECG
  • Indications, contraindications, doses, and routes of administration for drugs recommended for refractory VF/Pulseless VT
  • ACLS initial assessment and management recommendations in the ACLS algorithms
  • 8 Ds of stroke care including why timely action is crucial

About ACLS Certification Institute

ACLS Certification Institute began in 2010 when a team of healthcare and emergency medical providers came together with one common goal: Creating a medical certification experience that was better for patients and providers.

Our team saw an increasing gap between emerging medical science and providers’ ability to keep abreast of new methods, vital information, and practices that incorporated everything.

As our team realized traditional certification options could not keep pace with the exponential increase of medical knowledge, the escalating demands on providers’ time, and industry job growth. Medical providers needed a smarter, more efficient way to stay current on medical knowledge and best practices.

By pairing emerging technologies with the latest medical information, the ACLS Certification Institute began offering industry-leading online certifications.

Now, the ACLS Certification Institute is the largest online provider of emergency life support certification training. We’ve helped tens of thousands of providers improve patients’ outcomes while certifying on a flexible schedule that works best for them.

In 2017, ACLS Certification Institute was purchased by Carrus and became part of a larger movement to elevate patient care through innovative online training. We are proud to be a part of the Carrus family, and we strive to uphold our company values of quality, convenience, and service, making the best contribution to our community’s health and safety.
