What's Included in a Typical ACLS Course?

ACLS stands for Advanced Cardiac Life Support. In this course, you’ll learn information and skills to help you care for patients suffering from a cardiac event and increase their chances of survival until paramedics or other assistance arrives. 

ACLS training includes a combination of Basic Life Support (BLS) and CPR skills, which can be essential life saving techniques for people experiencing cardiac arrest and other medical emergencies. 

A reputable ACLS course will help you learn the skills necessary to be prepared for nearly any medical emergency, including:
  • Airway management 
  • Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) response
  • Stroke management
  • Recognizing and managing respiratory and cardiac arrest
  • Recognizing and managing peri-arrest conditions such as symptomatic bradycardia
You can take separate healthcare BLS certification courses or CPR courses, but the information covered in these courses largely overlaps with the ACLS course for healthcare professionals. ACLS and BLS differ in that BLS training includes chest compressions, ventilation, and early AED use. 

ACLS certification is essential for anyone who works in the medical field. Some employers or organizations outside of the medical profession may also require ACLS certification, so be sure to check with your employer or licensing organization on your requirements.

Renew Your ACLS Certification

Initial ACLS certification courses are designed to provide training for people who’ve never been certified before. ACLS recertification is ideal for medical professionals who have previously completed an ACLS certification program and who need to renew their certificate to remain in good standing.

When you complete your ACLS training, you’ll receive a course completion card that will expire in two years. Avoid being out of compliance with your employer or licensing body by renewing your certification with a recertification course once every two years.

If you work in the medical field, quality ACLS and CPR training keeps you prepared for anything that may happen during your shift. With ProTrainings, you’ll also receive a weekly refresher video after completing your initial ACLS certification.

Why do professionals need ACLS certification?

An ACLS course teaches you how to handle cardiovascular emergencies, specifically.

How long is an ACLS certification valid for?

No matter where you earn your ACLS certification, it is valid for two years.

After completing an ACLS certification course, you’ll receive a course completion card that you can provide as proof that you’re ACLS certified. Your card will also have an expiration date, which will likely be logged by your employer.

Is ProTrainings ACLS certification accepted by the American Heart Association?
