ACLS Certification Programs
Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) is an advanced course that highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac arrest care. ACLS also covers airway management and related pharmacology. In this course skills are taught in large group sessions, and small group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios are presented.
Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) - American Heart Association®
Instructor-Led Classes: Initial $199.99; Recertification $129.99; add optional BLS recertification for $29.99
Three Ways to Earn American Heart Association® ACLS Certification
ACLS certification can be earned in 3 formats to meet the needs of students. All formats include the same learning objectives and result in the same American Heart Association® course completion card and certification.
Traditional Classroom ACLS Courses
In Instructor-Led ACLS Courses Instructors deliver both the cognitive portion of training and the psychomotor skills practice and testing in a classroom setting. Everything is completed in one class with this format. Students do not need to complete an online course prior to attending Instructor-led courses.
Blended-Learning Online ACLS Courses
Blended Learning "HeartCode® ACLS" includes a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes the cognitive portion of the course online in a self-directed manner, and then completes a shortened in person hands-on skills and testing session at our Education Center.
Update and Recertification ACLS Courses
ACLS Accelerated Recertification courses are for providers who have been previously certified in ACLS. The Accelerated course meets the same educational objectives as all of our ACLS programs, but is shorter and very fast paced.
What our Students Say
Why Choose Twin Training?
Our instructors use proven adult education strategies including video-supplemented lessons, and scenario-based learning. Because of this, our students are able to learn the core competencies of emergency care in an engaging learning environment that does not feel like another grueling continuing education course. Say goodbye to pointless and boring CE, and step into a learning environment that will prepare you to manage emergencies.
Training and proficiency in basic ECG interpretation and cardiovascular pharmacology is required prior to attending ACLS. While ECG interpretation and key ACLS medications are reviewed in class, students who do not come to class with a basic understanding of these concepts may struggle. All participants must possess professional-level Basic Life Support certification prior to attending ACLS.
ACLS follows the American Heart Association's 2015 curriculum for Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support and includes: Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) treatment and management, cardiac arrhythmia recognition and treatment, advanced airway management, emergency cardiac pharmacology, stroke emergencies, resuscitation from cardiac arrest, and more.
