Description

The Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) course is a one-day (eight hour) training course designed to equip participants with the technical and non-technical skills necessary to effectively manage adult cardiac arrest situations in line with ANZCOR guidelines.

Ongoing feedback and instruction throughout the day assists to reinforce understanding and the learned application of ACLS theoretical knowledge and frameworks.
