The ACLS Provider course will help you to develop skills – as a member of a healthcare team – in simulated situations that mirror real-life cardiac-related emergencies that happen in hospital environments such as the Emergency Room, Operating Room, ICU, or advanced care practitioner setting in out-of-hospital situations.

These simulations will involve:

  • high-quality CPR

  • high-performance team dynamics and communication

  •  systems of care 

  • recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes.

You will be able to reinforce concepts, undertake skills practice, receive coaching and correction, and refine your abilities.

  • Please bring your own mask as we are practicing some restrictions for COVID 19.​

  • Where comfortable clothing as hands-on simulations are a part of the course.
