      All Safety & Wellness Courses

  • Please be on time because it will be difficult for late students to catch up once we start.  Students are required to attend and participate in the entire course, successfully pass a written test and skills demonstration.


          Course Preparation

  • These courses are designed to teach you the lifesaving skills required to be both a team member and a team leader in either an in-hospital or out-of-hospital setting. Because they cover extensive material in a short time, you will need to prepare for the course beforehand.


           Pre-course Requirements for ACLS/PALS

  1. Complete a BLS for Healthcare Providers course and be able to perform high-quality CPR and use an AED according to the 2015 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC.
  2. Complete the Pre-course Self-Assessments found in the Provider Manual (manuals available for purchase during registration).

            You should prepare for the course by doing the following:

  1. Review and understand the information in your Provider Manual
  2. For ACLS/PALS - Review and understand the information in the BLS for Healthcare Providers manual. The resuscitation scenarios require that your BLS skills and knowledge are current. You will be tested on adult 1-rescuer CPR and AED skills at the beginning of the ACLS Provider Course. You will not be taught how to do CPR or how to use an AED. You must know this in advance.
  3. Print your scores for the *pre-course assessment tests and bring them with you to class (if applicable). 


What to Bring and What to Wear

  • Bring your Provider Manual to each class. You will need your Provider Manual during each lesson in the course. You may refer to the Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care for Healthcare Providers (optional at ACLS/PALS), and you may bring it to the course to use as a reference guide during some of the stations in the course. 
  • Please wear comfortable, layered clothing to class as the temperature is difficult to regulate. You will be practicing skills, the course requires bending, standing, and lifting. If you have any physical condition that might prevent you from engaging in these activities, please tell an instructor prior to the start of the training.
