overview

Both courses allow for student inter­ac­tion, hands on expe­ri­ence, and the asking of ques­tions, in a class­room and small group envi­ron­ment. This ACLS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 Amer­i­can Heart Asso­ci­a­tion Guide­lines Update for CPR and Emer­gency Cardio­vas­cu­lar Care.

  • rapid assess­ment skills 
  • high-perfor­mance team dynamics 
  • airway and respi­ra­tory management 
  • commu­ni­ca­tion
  • phar­ma­col­ogy
