  • Learning strategies to support rapid recognition of and effective response to cardiovascular emergencies
  • Basic Life Support (BLS) is required prior to completion of your ACLS course and is an optional add-on in our Vancouver courses. We offer BLS concurrently with every ACLS Provider course outside Vancouver as part of the course tuition.
  • We recommend that you come into this course with some ECG knowledge, namely the ability to interpret the most urgent, basic rhythms. If you have NO ECG knowledge, we suggest taking one of our Six Second ECG Essentials courses (1 day) to get you going.

"The part that resonated with me was being able to quickly recognize various rhythms and that the process always starts with evaluating your patient. It's really easy to focus on the heart monitor and not the patient so beginning with that as the first set of the process really helps." - Marcel (Sep 2021)

Six Second ECG Essentials

"Having Part 1 online is a great idea so this way ACLS doesn't seem long. Having a 4-5 hr in person class is long enough." - Jessica (Aug 2021)

"First time taking BLS and ACLS but it was an amazing learning experience. I find that doing the split of online and hands on is a good mix." - Paramvir (Aug 2021)
