ACLS Provider Course Registrant,

ACLS Provider Course Registrant,
This letter confirms your registration in the ACLS Provider Course to be held at the Avera Education Center located, classroom 2 at 810 E 23rd
Street, Sioux Falls, SD.
On the first day, registration will begin at 7:45 am, class starting promptly at 8:00 am. Class will conclude by 4:00 pm. On the second day,
the course will begin promptly at 8:30 am and will wrap up around 2:00 pm.
Please plan to be on time because it will be difficult for late students to catch up once we start. Students are expected to attend and participate in
the entire course.
The ACLS Provider Course is designed to teach you the lifesaving skills required to be both a team member and a team leader in either an inhospital or out-of-hospital setting. Because the ACLS Provider Course covers extensive material in a short time, you will need to prepare for the
course in advance.
You should prepare for the course by doing the following:
 Complete the pre-course preparation checklist that came with your ACLS Provider Manual.
 Review and understand the information in your ACLS Provider Manual. Pay particular attention to the 10 core cases in Part 5.
 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 skills 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.
 Review and understand the ACLS algorithms for the cases in the ACLS Provider Manual.
 Complete the ACLS Pre-course Self-Assessment on ACLS ECGs and Pharmacology (ACLS Student Website)
The code is: compression
This course will NOT teach the following:
 Algorithms
 ECG information
 Pharmacology information
* If you do not know this information prior to the course, it is unlikely that you can successfully complete the ACLS Provider Course. All participants,
regardless of title or position held, will be held to the same standards for passing the course.
The required textbook for the course is the ACLS Provider Manual (2011). Books will not be available for purchase the day of the class. Another
helpful reference guide is the 2010 Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care. Materials can be purchased from the companies listed below.
There a limited number available to check out in the Avera McKennan Library.
