Additional Information

The online ACLS class goes beyond the basics to give students the advanced knowledge and skills needed to prevent and monitor cardiac arrest. Online ACLS certification equips students with the confidence and expertise to perform life-saving procedures before taking action in a real-life scenario. Students will learn everything needed to know from start to finish, including patient assessment and preparation, CPR and airway management techniques, as well as pharmacology for cardiac patients. The online ACLS course also covers intervening and caring for patients with cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmias, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).

The online ACLS class is led by experienced industry professionals and presented via Zoom, providing students the convenience to participate from any location. Full-body lecturing and step-by-step, hands-on procedures are demonstrated with uninterrupted clarity through HD cameras. Students can be seen, heard, and corrected via their device of choice. At-home participation with hands-on equipment (available for purchase through our online store) is required for proper ACLS skills check. Students must demonstrate their skills for the issuance of an official AHA ACLS Provider eCard. Alternatively, students may choose a blended online ACLS class and earn credit for the lecture only. Blended ACLS classes require students to attend an in-person skills session at one of our training sites to satisfy the hands-on requirement and receive an official AHA ACLS provider eCard.
