Frequently asked question

  • Can anyone take an ACLS course?

    Yes! Any healthcare professional can take ACLS. For first time ACLS students, you'll learn the latest AHA protocols for treating several common cardiac emergencies. These include patients with tachy/brady dysrhythmias, patients in asystole or pulseless electrical activity (PEA), and patients suspected of suffering from a stroke.

  • Is there a pretest involved?

    Yes. Once you've registered for the ACLS course, we'll provide you with the link and access code to take the American Heart Association's ACLS pretest. The test reviews common cardiac dysrhythmias and pharmacological interventions in a variety of scenario based questions. The pretest helps gauge your level of knowledge prior to taking the ACLS class.

  • Do I need a textbook?

    Yes, the AHA requires that every student has a textbook. You can purchase one when you register, or rent a book for the day of class.

  • Is there a test involved?

    Yes. AHA requires every ACLS student to take a written exam at the end of their training.
