ACLS Instructor Course
The purpose of an ACLS Instructor Course is to develop proficiency in teaching, organizing, coordinating, and conducting an ACLS Provider Course. ACLS Instructors must have a firm working knowledge and understanding of the ACLS material. They are also expected to demonstrate in-depth detailed knowledge of current emergency cardiac care. Participants learn to design a provider course to meet the needs of a specific student population. Currently accepted principles of adult learning, the ability to sequence instruction, the use of interactive teaching strategies and evaluation of student learning and progress are essential facets of this course.
Upon successful completion of this course, the participant should be able to:
Reveal proficiency in current ACLS skills and concepts
Demonstrate proper function and use of ACLS teaching equipment
Teach an ACLS course using the video instruction and lesson maps
Demonstrate the ability to allow students to practice ACLS while watching the video
Demonstrate the ability to evaluate students fairly and provide appropriate remediation if needed
Understand and perform defibrillation and transcutaneous pacing
Use testing materials to conduct skills testing
