Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
Enhance your skills in the treatment of cardiopulmonary emergencies, gain valuable hands-on experience in the decision-making process of cardiac management, and improve outcomes for your patients. A long standing leader in the delivery of emergency life support programs, Michener has a team of experienced instructors committed to building your proficiency and confidence in cardiac arrest scenarios. Following the updated American Heart Association Guidelines (AHA, 2010), this highly interactive program utilizes our state of the art simulation centre, providing hands-on experience to produce a very realistic mega code resuscitation. Upon successful completion of a written exam and practical evaluation, you will receive a Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario card, valid for 2 years.
Good ECG interpretation skills are required for success in this course. For those who wish to test/review their ECG interpretation skills please go to ECG STAT Test. Online courses are offered at Michener for those who need to enhance this skill. Please see course listing.

Please note: Heart and Stroke criteria for taking ACLS state that you must have successfully completed a BLS for Health Care Provider (C) course in accordance with current guidelines, be actively using BLS skills on a regular basis and demonstrate competence in performing CPR. Hence we require demonstration of competence for successful completion of the course.
Registration does not guarantee success.
As instructors we would like to see everyone succeed at the ACLS course, however not everyone is successful. The most common reason(s) that students are unsuccessful are lack of preparation prior to the ACLS course and or lack of ECG interpretation skills.Registration in this course does not guarantee success. In the event that you are not successful, the Course Director will recommend at the end of the course that you repeat the entire course on another date (you will be responsible for the entire tuition fee). Unsuccessful participants will not receive a refund of course fees.
Disclaimer: Please note you will be tested on the information that can be found in the 6th Edition ACLS Manual. The link provided to the ECG STAT test is an additonal study resource and does not replace the 6th Edition ACLS Manual (required reading).
