The ACLS and BLS Provider Courses are designed to teach you the lifesaving skills required to function as a team member and/or team leader. Because these courses cover extensive material within a short period, it is imperative that you prepare for the course in advance. The ACLS Provider Manual that you will receive includes access to a Student website, which includes study materials and the pre-course assessment
Required Course Preparation:
1. BLS “Part 1” online. You must complete this, print the certificate and bring it with you to class as this is required by the AHA for your file.
2. ACLS - complete the ECG and Pharmacology Pre-course Self-Assessment on the Student Website (www.heart.org/eccstudent), the password is on the inside cover of your ACLS student manual.
3. Complete the pre-course preparation checklist in your ACLS Provider Manual.
4. You will be expected to know the ECG rhythms and the emergency cardiovascular medications outlined in the ACLS provider manual. ECG rhythm recognition and pharmacology are a prerequisite skill to this course. This information is prerequiste knowledge and won't be covered in detail in the course.
Additional resources that may help you prepare include:
What to Bring
Bring your own lunch and a drink!
You will receive an ACLS provider manual from COM. Bring this manual and both the BLS “Part 1” certificate & the ACLS Pre-course Self-Assessment completion form to class. You will not be admitted to class without these items.
