ACLS Anywhere:

The Center for Emergency Medicine is proud to offer Advanced Life Support Anywhere in an effort to make re-certification more accessible to students.   In this course, students will acquire the most current ACLS knowledge and will develop proficiency in psychomotor skills to assure proper application of ACLS procedures. All courses are taught to the standards established by the American Heart Association.
