ACL Provider Renewal (Instructor Led Course)


Instructor-led course

Are you a healthcare provider who is confident in your ACLS skills and uses them regularly, and requires limited practice to renew your credentials? Then Heart & Stroke’s ACLS Provider Renewal course is for you.

Our ACLS Provider Renewal course tests and strengthens your high-level skills and knowledge involving core ACLS concepts in simulated, cardiac-related emergency situations to help you in your practice. 

In this concentrated course, your proficiency will be evaluated in high-quality CPR, high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, acute coronary syndromes, and more. 

This course is offered in two learning formats: the more traditional classroom-based teaching led by one of our instructors; or the blended learning format in which you delve into parts of the curriculum on your own time and at your own pace and then take the instructor-led, in-classroom component when you’re ready. You can choose the format that suits your learning style best.
