SOME EXCITING NEWS: The ACLS course has recently been updated and improved by the American Heart Association. Students can now review ACLS course videos online, prior to the class. This allows the ACLS class itself to be focused on hands-on skills, which significantly shortens the time you spend in the ACLS class. There is no extra fee to access this online ACLS Precourse Work. When you register below for our ACLS class, you will receive an automatic confirmation email which includes the link to the online ACLS Precourse Work. Click the link and log in to access it. Through the same link, you will also complete the ACLS Precourse Self-Assessment. This is an online assessment. The American Heart Association requires you to achieve a score of 70% or higher in the assesment in order to attend an ACLS class. You have unlimited chances to attempt it.
When you have completed the ACLS Precourse Self-Assessment and Precourse Work, you will be able to print out an online certificate for proof. Print it and bring it with you to the class. You can also email it to email@example.com. You must have this certificate to attend our ACLS class.
IMPORTANT NOTE: ACLS renewal students are required to have the current ACLS 2020 version textbook during the class. This is mandatory. If you have access to one, bring it with you to the class to show the instructor. If you do not have one, or if your version is the older one (2015 or earlier) continue with your registration, and during the process, you will be promopted to "Add ACLS Textbook (cost $40)". You can either purchase one from us this way, or purchase one yourself online and bring with you to the class.
