The ACLS Experienced Provider course is designed for experienced clinicians with prior training in ACLS. The course focus is "the next step" in ACLS training. This course provides a stimulus for expert clinicians and practitioners to identify areas in resuscitation that deal with special circumstances. The case based small group sessions involve review of electrolyte abnormalities, toxicology, 12 lead ECG discussion, and cardiac arrest due to special causes. The American Heart Association recommends that providers renew their skills and knowledge at least once every 2 years. This course is an option for those needing to renew an ACLS Provider card. A current CPR Provider card is a course prerequisite.
