ACLS Course


Course Accreditation
Statement of Accreditation:  Meriter Hospital is accredited by the Wisconsin Medical Society to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

AMA/PRA Designation Statement:  Meriter Hospital designates ACLS Recognition for a maximum of 16 hours in category 1 credit and ACLS Renewal for a maximum of 8 hours in category 1 credit towards the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Admission Requirements:      
• All applicants must submit a current Health Care Provider CPR card at registration.  If you are not current in CPR, please arrange to do so as soon as possible, hopefully before your ACLS course.
• All renewal candidates must submit a previous ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) card.  This must be presented at registration.
• It is necessary that the renewal participant be thoroughly familiar with all ACLS concepts.   The focus of the renewal portion of the course is designed toward an update of current ACLS protocols and skills and successful skills demonstration/validation.

The course will present the information standards and skills developed by the American Heart Association for Advanced Cardiac Life Support certification and recertification.  The material will be presented through the use of lecture, interactive discussions and skills laboratories.  Participants will complete both written and performance examinations.

Intended Audience
Physicians, nurses and paraprofessionals involved in critical care/emergency care situations.  Class size is limited.  Enroll early to assure a place.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to direct a team of health care providers in a simulated cardiac arrest situation.  In addition, participants will learn such skills as endotracheal intubation, defibrillation/cardioversion and AED, recognition of dysrhythmias and application of therapeutic modalities.

The registration fee for the Advanced Cardiac Life Support Course is $225.00 for the Recognition, $175.00 for the Renewal.  The fee includes course materials and breaks refreshments.  Advanced registration is required.  Enrollment will be limited.  Deadline for registration is two weeks prior to course date. 

This course will be located at Meriter Hospital Park in the classroom level of McConnell Hall.

Nearby on-street parking is available in limited areas.  Parking in the hospital ramp is limited and is not included in the course fee.  The cost is $10/day.

The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in ACLS and has developed instructional materials for this purpose.  Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the American Heart Association, and any fees charged for such a course do not represent income to the association.
