Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS-R) One-day Renewal Course

Miami, FL US

The Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS-R) Provider Course is designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of a patient, whether in or out of the hospital. In this course you will enhance your skills in the treatment of arrest and peri-arrest patients through active participation in a series of simulated cardiopulmonary cases. 

Baptist Health is an authorized American Heart Association (AHA) provider and has approved these courses for Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit.
