ALS: 2 Day Course (Advanced Life Support)

Who is this course suitable for?

The ALS provider course is designed for healthcare professionals who would be expected to apply the skills taught as part of their clinical duties, or to teach them on a regular basis. Appropriate participants include doctors, paramedics and nurses working in acute care areas (e.g. ED, CCU, ICU, HDU, operating theatres, acute medical admissions units) or on resuscitation /medical emergency/ICU outreach teams.

All applicants must hold a professional healthcare qualification or be in training for a professional healthcare qualification. Medical students, nurses and other healthcare providers not covered in the groups above should be encouraged to complete the Immediate Life Support (ILS) course. Those with a particular interest in resuscitation should then consider attending an ALS provider course, where appropriate. Medical students in their final year of training can be accepted as candidates on an ALS course if this is an established local arrangement.

This is a 2-day face-to-face course.

The course programme consists of lectures, workshops, skill stations and cardiac arrest simulations (i.e. CASTeach).

Learning outcomes

The ALS course teaches the knowledge and skills required to:

  • recognise and treat the deteriorating patient using a structured ABCDE approach;
  • deliver standardised CPR in adults;
  • manage a cardiac arrest by working with a multidisciplinary team in an emergency situation;
  • utilise non-technical skills to facilitate strong team leadership and effective team membership.

Pre-course preparation

The course manual is sent to candidates one month before the course. Candidates are expected to have prepared for the course by reading the manual and submitting their completed pre-course MCQ paper before attending the face-to-face component. Candidates are given access to e-learning materials on the Resuscitation Council UK LMS and they must access and undertake the e-learning component and the pre-course MCQ without reference to the manual, before attending the face-to-face element of the course.

Please note: Prior competence in CPR is an essential prerequisite to attending the course.
