“What to do before you take an ACLS recertification class”.


The ACLS Provider 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 an out-of-hospital setting. Because the ACLS Provider Course covers extensive material in a short time, you will need to prepare for the course beforehand.

Pre-course Preparation for ACLS Recertification Students.

Prior to attending your ACLS Recertification Class go to the American Heart Association (AHA) Student Website for pre – course preparation.

Go to  and then enter code: compression

Complete the following at the AHA student website:

  • Pre-course Self Assessment
  • Supplementary Material
  • ACS Video
  • Stroke Video
  • ACLS Science Overview Video
  • CPR and AED Skills Video
  • IO Animation Video

Also visit the link below and review PART 8 and PART 9


What to Wear:

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing to class. Scrubs would be GREAT! You will be practicing skills that require you to work on your hands and knees, and the course requires bending, standing, and lifting. If you have any physical condition that might prevent you from engaging in these activities, please tell an instructor. The instructor may be able to adjust the equipment if you have back, knee, or hip problems.

Class will last around 4 1/2 hours. (varies slightly depending on class size)

See you in class. 🙂
