Advanced Cardiac Life Support for the Experienced Provider (ACLS-EP)

ACLS for Experienced Providers goes beyond the core ACLS training by offering critical thinking opportunities for those advanced, experienced, healthcare professionals who use ACLS on a regular basis. The goal of ACLS EP is to improve outcomes in complex cardiovascular, respiratory and other (e.g., metabolic, toxicologic) emergencies by expanding on core ACLS guidelines and encouraging critical thinking and decision-making strategies. Through cooperative learning and active participation in case-based scenarios, learners enhance their skills in the differential diagnosis and treatment of prearrest, arrest and postarrest patients.


  • All registrants must be healthcare providers who direct or participate in the resuscitation of patients either in or out of hospital setting.
  • As part of preparation for the course, participants are issued a provider manual and expected to prepare prior to attendance in the course.
  • Complete a precourse work assignment made up of self-assessment and precourse work videos through the AHA E-learning website. Participants will be given further instructions related to this requirement upon registration.

Note: Participants must have a valid AHA ACLS card and have at least six years of ACLS experience prior to taking the course. This course is designed for providers who have a strong understanding of standard ACLS and those with extensive clinical resuscitation experience.
