Course Description: BCFMT's American Heart Association (AHA) Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) classes will be conducted at the Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company (RVFC). RVFC is located at 108 Main Street in Reisterstown, MD 21136. The AHA ACLS Refresher Courses offered by BCFMT, Inc. are designed for healthcare providers who either direct or participate in the resuscitation of patients, whether in or out of hospital. Throughout the ACLS Program, participants will enhance their skills to manage the adult cardiac arrest victim or patients experiencing other cardiovascular emergencies. The AHA ACLS (2015 Guidelines) emphasize the importance of consistent basic life support, the integration of effective advanced cardiovascular life support interventions, and the need for effective team interactions and communications during emergency events. Active participation in a series of simulated cases and megacodes allows participants to reinforce the course content. Each participant must review pharmacology and EKGs prior to the course. The interpretation of EKGs is not covered in this course. To enroll participants must have a current AHA ACLS and AHA BLS Card. These cards must be brought to class at the time of training. The cost of our AHA ACLS Renewal Class is $175. There is a fee of $40 if a one-on-one remedial session is required. Payment may be made via PayPal or credit card in the course enrollment section of our website (bcfmt.com). The registration deadline for each class is one week prior to the course date. An ACLS book is not included. If you need a class and cannot attend one of these sessions, email BABirago@aol.com to find additional options that are available. We offer the AHA ACLS Online Part 1 and Part 2 Skills Testing Option, which provides additional scheduling flexibility. If you have a small group, we can bring an ACLS Class to your site.
