(Day 1) 8:45 AM – 4:45 PM
(Day 2) 7:45 AM – 12:00 PM
Columbia Rooms II & III, 3rd Floor of KRMC’s Mountain Pavilion
Participants need to arrive promptly at the start of each day. Students are expected to be on
time and participate in the entire course.
Prior to the Course:
 For local participants, please pick up an ACLS Provider Manual (with student CD) and the
Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care for Healthcare Providers in the Education
Department, 2nd floor of the Mountain Pavilion. If you live outside the local area, email the
Education Department at education@kadlecmed.org to have your manual mailed to you.
 Attached is your copy of the BLS Review Sheet.
How to Get Ready:
The ACLS Initial Provider Course is 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 the ACLS Initial Provider Course covers extensive material in a short time, you will
need to prepare for the course beforehand.
Precourse Requirements:
You should prepare for the course by doing the following:
1. Complete the pre-course 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 4.
2. Review and understand the information in the BLS for Healthcare Providers video clip on
the student CD. 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. Review, understand, and complete the ECG and Pharmacology pre-course assessment
tests on the ACLS student CD. You will not be taught how to read or interpret ECGs in
the course, nor will you be taught details about ACLS pharmacology.
The ACLS Initial Provider Course does not teach algorithms, ECG, or pharmacology
information. If you do not learn and understand the ECG and pharmacology information
in the precourse assessment tests, it is unlikely that you can successfully complete the
ACLS Initial Provider Course.
What to Bring:
 Bring your ACLS Provider Manual to each class. You will need your ACLS Provider Manual
during each lesson in the course. You may refer to the Handbook of Emergency
Cardiovascular Care for Healthcare Providers as a reference guide during some of the
stations in the course.

etc. be worn. Employees who are not adhering to the dress code will be asked to change prior to the start of the
