Description

Course Information

This 2-day (16 hours) ACLS course is designed to teach you the lifesaving skills required to be both a team member and a team leader in either an in-hospital or out-of-hospital setting.

The course is based on the current New Zealand Resuscitation Council Guidelines.

It is suitable for all health professionals with a need for advanced skills, competence and confidence in emergency situations and who may be required to respond to a cardiovascular emergency.

Intended audience: Please note that this course is intended for health professionals who have not previously undertaken training in advanced resuscitation.

Health Professionals who are already working in an acute setting (eg. ED, ICU, CCU etc.) or who have previously completed an ACLS full course should enrol in the ACLS Recertification or ACLS Refresher course.

For more information on which course is appropriate to your needs, please contact us. Participants should be competent in IV cannulation.
For those that require training with this, an IV Cannulation Course can be attended.

Preparation
In order for participants to gain the most benefit, and to achieve the assessment standards of the course, it is essential to complete the pre-course reading and the pre-course multiple choice and ECG recognition tests prior to the course.

You can access pre-course reading material from the following link. An account name and password will be emailed to all confirmed course registrants approximately three weeks prior to the course date. These details are necessary to gain access to the online information.
