Thank you for signing up for the combination ACLS/BLS refresher class with EMTI (Emergency Medical Training Institute). We are looking forward to offering you a fantastic day of training. Below you’ll find our intro letter to the class with a link to the pretest and other pertinent information. Class will be held at the Arlington RMC Campus.
You must possess both current American Heart Association BLS and ACLS cards to participate in this BLS and ACLS refresher class.
Mandatory Precourse Self-Assessment: Before attending the ACLS Course, students must complete the mandatory precourse self-assessment located on the ACLS Student Website. They must achieve a score of 70% or higher, and they have unlimited chances to pass the precourse selfassessment. Students must print their completion certificate and bring it to their ACLS class.
Agenda for the day includes reviewing the principles of ECG monitoring, reviewing videos from the American Heart Association on Advanced Cardiac Life Support. To complete the requirements for certification, there will be a written test (70% pass rate required-open book) and a demonstration of competency through simulation.
After ACLS is complete we will include an opportunity for you to refresh your BLS as well. Through demonstrating high quality CPR and respiratory interventions as individuals and within a team in a simulated environment, you will fulfill the requirements for renewing your BLS card.
*** Please note we are using 2020 ACLS and BLS books ***
