Audience: Physicians, registered nurses, paramedics, certified registered nurse anesthetists, respiratory therapy technicians or any other allied healthcare professional which may be involved with code management. Those who are becoming ACLS certified for the first time or do not use ACLS skills routinely in their duties.
Upon successful completion: Participants receive an American Heart Association ACLS Provider Card, valid for two years.
Textbook Policy: The intent is to ensure that Students/Providers have a book to take home for their own personal use over the 5 year guideline period. Students/Providers renewing during the current 5 year guideline period should bring their book back for their renewal course to avoid having to purchase an additional book. The exception to this policy is the student/Provider who is a healthcare professional who will have access to the textbook for individual study reference before during and after the course at his/her facilities. The provider manual may be purchased during the registration process.
