This two-day advanced life support provider course has been developed by the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), based on the latest 2021 ERC guidelines. This course teaches evidence-based resuscitation guidelines and skills to healthcare professionals, using a standardized approach.
The ERC ALS course has been designed to reflect changes in resuscitation education. The focus for learning is based on adult learning principles.
This course will prepare members of multi-disciplinary teams to manage peri-arrest situations and to treat the patient until transfer to a critical care unit. The complexity and management of cardiac arrest situations, including decision making and effective communication with the team and the patient’s relatives are incorporated within this course, thereby highlighting the importance of non-technical skills.
The ALS course has a high ratio of instructors to candidates (1: 3). The face-to-face teaching is mainly delivered in small groups with hands-on practical skill stations and scenario-based simulations.
