AHCS Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) - Recertification


Please note that this course is currently ONLY available for Adventist Health Castle employees.

We are currently only accepting check or cash. Please bring a check or cash to the course for the following amount if you are:

  • Employee of an Organization Affiliated Adventist Health Castle — $185.00
  • Castle Employees Only (Non-Clinical/Non-Required) — $155.00

Please plan to arrive on time, because it will be difficult for late students to catch up once we start. Students are expected to attend and participate in the entire course.

The ACLS Course will teach you the lifesaving skills required to be both a team member and a Team Leader in either an in-hospital or out-of-hospital setting. Because the ACLS Course covers extensive material in a short time, you will need to prepare for the course beforehand.

Precourse Requirements

You should prepare for class by doing the following:

1. Review and understand the information in your ACLS Provider Manual. Pay attention to the cases in Part 5.

2. Review, understand, and pass the mandatory precourse self-assessment. Print your certificate and bring it with you to class. The precourse self-assessment does not require a code anymore; instead you will need to create an account on the AHA website (

3. Ensure that your BLS skills and knowledge are current for the resuscitation scenarios. At the beginning of the ACLS Course, you will be tested on adult high-quality BLS skills, using a feedback manikin. You must know these skills in advance because the ACLS Course will not teach you how to do CPR or use an AED.

What This Course Does Not Cover:

The ACLS Course does not teach ECG rhythm recognition or pharmacology. If you do not learn and understand the ECG and pharmacology information in the Pre-course Self-Assessment, it is unlikely that you can successfully complete the ACLS Course.

What to Bring and What to Wear

Bring your ACLS Provider Manual to class. You will need it during each lesson in the course. You may wish to purchase the AHA’s Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care for Healthcare Providers (optional), which you may bring to class to use as a reference guide during some of the learning stations. The Learning & Development Department (located on the 2nd floor of the annex building) does have a limited supply of ACLS Provider Manual’s for AHCS employees to check out. If you would like to check out a book before the class, please call Education and Training at 808-263-5382.

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. You will be practicing skills that require working on your hands and knees, bending, standing, and lifting. If you have physical conditions that might prevent you from participating in the course, please tell one of the instructors when you arrive for the course. The instructor will work to accommodate your needs within the stated course completion requirements. In the event that you are ill, please notify Education and Training at (808) 263-5382 to reschedule your training.
