ACLS CERTIFICATION WITH ACLS EDU

When a cardiac emergency happens near you, be ready to save lives with the ACLS recertification course. Geared towards reinforcing and refreshing the skills and training you learned in the original ACLS course, the ACLS renewal class will give you the confidence you need to respond quickly in any scenario. Celebrating 30 years as an American Heart Association certification training site, ACLS EDU proudly offers AHA ACLS recertification and renewal courses. With a mission to make learning and practicing as stress-free and accessible as possible, our in-person, online, and hybrid courses ensure each student masters the skills required to act in a life-or-death situation.

ACLS Renewal Course Information

The ACLS renewal course can take anywhere between 4-8 hours. The length of the course depends on several factors such as training materials, the class format, equipment to student ratios, and the number of students to instructor ratio. Smaller classes are usually much faster. Keep in mind that quality always matters, which is why instructors ensure enough time for students to fully learn the skills and training needed to save lives. When you complete your ACLS renewal certification, your completion card shows your commitment to responding effectively in a cardiac emergency. After two years, you must take an AHA ACLS renewal course to renew your ACLS certification. This ensures you are empowered to handle cardiovascular emergencies not just on the job, but in everyday occurrences.

Additional Information

The ACLS recertification course is for healthcare professionals who oversee or participate in medical activities surrounding cardiovascular emergencies, including cardiopulmonary arrest and other emergency responses requiring knowledge of heart function. In this instructor-led course, you will receive refresher training focused on:

  • Preventing cardiac arrest
  • Ideal continuous and early CPR methods
  •  Algorithm training
  • Reviewing CPR and Basic Life Support (BLS) fundamentals
  • Recognizing the signs of cardiopulmonary arrest
  • Intervening when stroke and acute coronary symptoms (ACS) are present
  • Providing post-cardiac arrest care
CEU HOURS
