The ALS recertification course is a 1-day course that has been designed to refresh the theory and practical skills required by senior members of a multi-disciplinary team to manage peri-arrest situations and to treat the patient until transfer to a critical care area. The complexity and management of cardiac arrest situations, including decision making and effective communication with the team is included.
Who is this course suitable for?
The ALS provider course is designed for healthcare professionals who would be expected to apply the skills taught as part of their clinical duties, or to teach them on a regular basis. Appropriate participants include doctors, paramedics and nurses working in acute care areas (e.g. ED, CCU, ICU, HDU, operating theatres, acute medical admissions units) or on resuscitation /medical emergency/ICU outreach teams. All applicants must hold a professional healthcare qualification or be in training for a professional healthcare qualification. Medical students, nurses and other healthcare providers not covered in the groups above should be encouraged to complete the Immediate Life Support (ILS) course. Those with a particular interest in resuscitation should then consider attending an ALS provider course, where appropriate. Medical students in their final year of training can be accepted as candidates on an ALS course if this is an established local arrangement.
The ALS course teaches the knowledge and skills required to:
- recognise and treat the deteriorating patient using a structured ABCDE approach;
- deliver standardised CPR in adults;
- manage a cardiac arrest by working with a multidisciplinary team in an emergency situation;
- utilise non-technical skills to facilitate strong team leadership and effective team membership.
The ALS Recertification course is only for those candidates who hold a valid RC (UK) ALS Provider certificate. It is not recommended that candidates attend a re-certification course if more than one year has elapsed since the expiry date of their Provider certificate.
On successful completion of the course, your certificate is valid for 4 years.
