ACLS Renewal Course
Attendees will participate in teaching and evaluation scenarios that review the necessary skills needed to manage the first 10 minutes of an actual resuscitation. This one-day course has been designed for individuals that have an ACLS Provider card that will expire soon or that have prior ACLS training. (The recommended renewal interval for all AHA courses is 2 years.)
Providers who intend to take a renewal course are expected to have a current Provider card to participate in a renewal course. However, students who present a card that is more than 30 days beyond the expiration date or do not possess a Provider card may challenge a renewal course. Those who choose "to challenge" a renewal course may do so but will NOT have the option of remediation. Please be aware that any challenge students who do not successfully meet the course completion requirements will need to repeat in a 2-day ACLS Provider Course.
