Dear Participant,
Please plan to arrive 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.
How to Get Ready
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 in-hospital or an out-of-hospital setting. Because the ACLS
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 precourse preparation checklist that came with your ACLS Provider Manual. Bring the
checklist with you to the course.
2. Review the course agenda.
3. Review and understand the information in your ACLS Provider Manual. Pay particular attention to
the 10 cases in Part 5.
4. The resuscitation scenarios require that your BLS skills and knowledge are current. You will be tested
on 1-rescuer adult CPR and AED skills at the beginning of the ACLS Provider Course. You must
know this in advance, since you will not be taught how to do CPR or how to use an AED.
5. Review, understand, and complete the ECG and Pharmacology Precourse Self-Assessment on the
Student Website (go to www.heart.org/eccstudent and enter this code: compression). You will not
be taught how to read or interpret ECGs in the course, nor will you be taught details about ACLS
pharmacology.
6. Print your scores for the Precourse Self-Assessment and bring them with you to class.
What This Course Does Not Cover
The ACLS Provider Course does not teach algorithms, ECG rhythm recognition, or pharmacology. If you
do not learn and understand the ECG and pharmacology information in the Precourse Self-Assessment, it
is unlikely that you can successfully complete the ACLS Provider Course. We do offer classes in ECG,
Pharmacology and Airway Management for you to take prior to class to help you be better prepared to
successfully complete this course.
What to Bring and What to Wear
Bring your ACLS Provider Manual to the 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 (optional), and you may bring it to the course to use as a reference guide during
some of the stations in the course. No books can be used during the written exam, which is a close book
exam. (Books may be purchased from the Training Center for the following prices: ECC Handbook-$25, ACLS Provider manual--$35—Both are the new 2010 guidelines).
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing to class. You will be practicing skills that require you to work on
your hands and knees, and the course requires bending, standing, and lifting. If you have any physical
condition that might prevent you from engaging in these activities, please tell an instructor. The instructor
may be able to adjust the equipment if you have back, knee, or hip problems.
Registration cancellation and absenteeism:
A 10-day notice of registration cancellation is required. Registrants providing less than 10 days of notice to
the Training Center are not eligible for a refund and will be charged for the class. Billings Clinic
employees not providing 10 days of notice will have their respective departments charged for the class.
Understandably, emergencies and other unforeseen events can occur which could prevent notifying the
Training Center of a cancellation until the last moment. The TC Coordinator will therefore review the
circumstances of the late notification prior to charging the student or department.
You must have, bring your current BLS Healthcare provider card to attend the class.
This class will be held at 801 North 29th Street, Billings, MT 59107
