Save time. Go online!
The American Heart Association Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Course is designed for providers to enhance their skills in treating adult victims of cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies.
You can take the didactic (lecture) portion of the course ONLINE and have one of our qualified instructors pass off the skills portion in person afterward. This saves you time and is more flexible than signing up for a 16-hour in-person course. If you have not taken an in-person ACLS class before, EMT Utah recommends taking the full in-person course the first time you certify, and using the online option for subsequent recertification.
To complete the didactic (lecture) portion online, go to shopcpr.heart.org/heartcode-acls and add the Heartcode® ACLS course to your cart. You will pay AHA (not EMT Utah) $151 for this course. Once you finish this portion, you will print off your completion certificate to bring with you to your skills pass-off session.
Register and pay online here for your skills pass-off session. Bring your certificate with you and we’ll pass you off in person on one of our scheduled days. It’s that easy! Your skills pass-off will take place during the second day of an already-running ACLS course.
Do not register for this pass-off session unless you have completed or will complete the AHA online course before attending.
Recertification Option: ACLS Providers with a non-lapsed certification can register for this pass-off session to challenge the ACLS exam and upon passing, can perform the skills to recertify. Students who do not satisfactorily pass the exam according to AHA standards will not be eligible to pass off their skills and will need to repeat the full course for certification. For those looking to recertify, EMT Utah recommends completing the online course and attending a skills pass-off session for time efficiency and flexibility.
