ACLS Renewal | Recertification Programs

The Canadian Heart Association’s ACLS education programs integrate the BLS skills with the advanced knowledge needed to participate in or manage a resuscitation event effectively. The program emphasizes the importance of preventing cardiac arrest, early and continuous, high-quality CPR, and high-performing teams. The course reflects science and education from the 2020 International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) Guidelines for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).

Who Should Attend An ACLS Classroom-Based Renewal | Recertification Program?

The Canadian Heart Association’s ACLS program is designed for healthcare professionals who participate in, or manage resuscitation events. This can include but is not limited to personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, dentists, paramedics, and others who need an ACLS course completion card.

Before enrolling in the ACLS Renewal | Recertification Program, you should have a solid understanding of the core ACLS algorithms (Cardiac Arrest, Post Arrest, Bradycardia, & Tachycardia). 

What Will You Learn During The ACLS Program?

You will…

  • Utilize the BLS, Primary, and Secondary Assessments. 
  • Perform high-quality BLS, emphasizing early chest compressions and integrating early defibrillation.
  • Recognize and manage patients experiencing a respiratory arrest
  • Discuss early recognition and management of Acute Coronary Events and Strokes.
  • Recognize and manage patients experiencing bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias.
  • Recognize and manage patients experiencing a cardiac arrest until termination of resuscitation efforts or transfer of care.
  • Manage a patient who obtains a return of spontaneous circulation.
  • Model effective communication as a team member or team leader.
  • Evaluate your team’s resuscitative efforts during a cardiac arrest utilizing a continuous assessment of CPR quality, monitoring the patient’s physiologic response, and delivering real-time feedback to your team
  • Recognize the impact and importance of team dynamics on overall team performance.
  • Discuss how the use of a rapid response team or medical emergency team may improve patient outcomes.

 How Will I Be Evaluated?
