++The Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Renewal course is intended for the renewing ACLS provider and builds upon the foundation of lifesaving BLS for Healthcare Provider skills and emphasizes the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR. This advanced course highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care, and immediate post-cardiac arrest care. ACLS also covers airway management, arrhythmia identification and management, and related pharmacologic intervention. All participants are required to present a current AHA ACLS card at the time of the course. Students who do not present a current AHA ACLS card may proceed into the course but must sign an AHA Protocol form indicating they understand they will not be allowed the option to remediate any testing portion of the course which includes the written exam and skills testing for BLS, Airway Management and Megacode.

Significant precourse preparation is essential to the course success, including proficiency in basic life support, and cardiac rhythm identification. To successfully complete this course, the student must pass a written exam with a score of 84% or higher as well as successfully demonstrate the following physical skills: an adult basic life support skills test, airway management test, and Megacode testing scenario as either a team leader or team member.
