Overview

UK HealthCare requires ACLS training and certification for medical and nursing staff and designated first responders so they can provide appropriate rescuer action as part of their job or in the event of a workplace emergency. Physician team leaders in an adult cardiac arrest must be knowledgeable regarding the best evidence practice of running a code according to the guidelines set by the American Heart Association. Participants will complete pre-requisite online training including video scenarios incorporating all of the AHA algorithms and complete pre- and post-tests.

A uky.edu email address is required when registering for a pre-requisite or live simulation training.

In accordance with AHA regulations, you must possess a valid ACLS provider card to participate in this recertification course.
