American Heart Association (AHA)
Combined Advanced Cardiac Life Support Instructor Course (ACLS-I) and Core Instructor Course
Course Background

The Advanced Cardiac Life Support Instructor Course (ACLS-I) aims to develop proficiency in teaching ACLS provider course. Proficiency includes the ability to set up an ACLS provider course based on the results of a pre-course “learning needs assessment” of a particular student population. The purpose of the ACLS Provider Course is to provide an adult education experience for healthcare professionals who manage cardiac arrest, life-threatening arrhythmia and acute ischemic stroke.

The AHA Core Instructor Course aims to strengthen the skills and proficiency in teaching and facilitate the personal professional development as an AHA instructor. It is currently a requisite for anyone who wants to become the AHA instructor.
Course Pre-requisites
      • Personnel who are working in emergency, intensive care, critical care or acute departments/wards; emergency medical providers such as medical officers, nurses, emergency technicians, paramedics and other professionals who need to respond to a cardiovascular emergency in adult.

      Successful ACLS Instructors will be finally approved by 3-step process:

      1. Successful Completion of the ACLS Instructor Course;
      2. Monitored Teaching: the candidate must participate actively and effectively in TWO ACLS provider courses while being monitored by an ACLS affiliate faculty member or ACLS course director;
      3. Faculty / Affiliate Review: The successful participant will receive an ACLS Instructor card after review of the above experience by a discretionary panel.
