Our ALS Courses

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Advanced Life Support (ALS) course is a standardised national course teaching evidence-based resuscitation guidelines and skills to healthcare professionals in Australia. The ALS course has been co-badged from the Resuscitation Council (UK) European Resuscitation Council ALS Ccourse, which has also been adopted by the European Resuscitation Council (ERC).

All co-badged courses in Australia are regulated by the ARC. The course credentials are cross-recognised by the RC (UK), New Zealand Resuscitation Council (NZRC) and the European Resuscitation Council ERC.

ALS certificates provided by the NZRC, RC(UK), (ERC) are recognised by the ARC. The RC (UK) and ERC use the same evidence based teaching material, program and assessment processes.

The goal of the ALS level 1 course is to provide the candidate with the skills and knowledge to effectively manage a patient in the immediate crisis, to prevent cardiopulmonary arrest and to participate as part of a resuscitation team, utilising the latest ARC guidelines.

The goal of the ALS level 2 course is to improve outcomes in complex cardiovascular, respiratory and other (eg, metabolic, toxicological) emergencies by expanding on core ALS guidelines and encouraging critical thinking and decision-making strategies. Through instruction and active participation in case-based scenarios, learners enhance their skills in the differential diagnosis and treatment of pre-arrest, arrest and post-arrest patients.
