The ACLS provider course (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) is a training course specially developed for medical professionals to ensure that they are able to lead or be involved in cardiovascular interventions, both in and out of hospital.

During the training course, the participant will broaden his/her specialist knowledge and expertise with regards to caring for patients before, during and after a cardiovascular arrest by actively working on a range of simulated cardiopulmonary case scenarios. The case simulation serves the purpose of reinforcing important key elements when caring for patients.

The “skill stations” completed in the framework of the training course help to ensure that the participant understands the importance of safety in the provision of care to patients for their later deployment as a team leader or a team member. The course book will be sent to every participant at least four weeks before the start of the training course to ensure that they have time to prepare.


The American Heart Association (AHA) strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in all AHA courses and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course materials, do not represent income to the AHA.
