HeartCode ACLS is a Web-based e-learning product that uses micro-simulation technology to present realistic patient scenarios. Students are presented with the 10 ACLS Core cases in hospital-based scenarios. While interacting with the program, students assess each patient, formulate a treatment plan based on ACLS guidelines, and provide treatment. Successful completion of the Web-based cognitive component (Part A) is required before attending and successfully completing a series of skills assessments (Part B) provided by an authorised IHF/AHA training site. Successful completion of both elements meets the requirements for the issuing of an IHF/AHA ACLS Provider card to the participant. The International accreditation awarded to successful participants is recognised in over 50 countries throughout the world.


A standard 2–Day ACLS course provides a structured learning environment for multidisciplinary groups to develop and practice the skills, teamwork, and organisation necessary to effectively manage all cardiovascular emergencies. During the 2 day course candidates have ample time and opportunity to practice, perform and integrate these skills into an assortment of case scenarios both as a team member and team leader before their final assessments.

However, the HeartCode 4 Hour ACLS assessmnet provides NO TEACHING of practical skills during the Face to Face component. GUH only allow candidates who have successfully completed a standard 2-Day ACLS course and are already competent in the practical skills such as Non-Invasive Airway Management, Bag-Mask Ventilation, CPR and Manual Defibrillator operation to apply for this course.
