ACLS Algorithms, Training, and Review

Watch 2 Minute Video Introduction

Make sure you watch the 2 minute video introduction above. The video explains how to get the most out of your preparation for AHA ACLS certification.

Begin your training by reviewing ACLS algorithms in the knowledge base to the left. After you have reviewed the knowledge base material, you will be ready to apply the ACLS Algorithms by taking some of the ACLS practice tests and megacode/skills station scenarios, and if you think you need further review, use the ACLS Video Review tutorials.

On this site, you will have fun while you learn and master all of the ACLS algorithms?

After you have competed all of the multiple choice megacode scenarios in the megacode simulator, round off your preparation for the AHA ACLS megacode skills station by reviewing the ACLS megacode series videos which take you through real time megacode scenarios. You can also practice rhythm recognition by reviewing the rapid rhythm identification videos.

  4. LOVE your site! I had my first renewal this October and just happened to find your site online while searching for help to study. I am definitly more of a hands on and visual learner and I am happy to say that after using your site for just a few hours for 2 days before my test I did great and felt very confident about the material.

  12. I have to say that although I am already ACLS certified and I am an administrator of an AHA authorized international training center in my hospital, I’ve never seen a site with great ACLS information as easy as this one, yet you do your answers with fun and confidence and finally you feel yourself like a real professional.
    Jeff; I appreciate your great work with this site. I made a great benefit from it for refreshing my information and keep it updated.
    Definitely I will recommend the site to my colleagues and those who intend to prepare for the ACLS testing.
    Thanks again and wish you all the good luck in the future. Please keep going.

  17. Hey Jeff,

    As far as recertifying for the ACLS what do you recommend taking? Would taking an on-line ACLS test be acceptable where you can take the test and upon passing receive your score and printable certificate right away with a hard copy of your ACLS card mailed shortly thereafter? Of course the on-line test won’t have the clinical skills portion. Guess this would be dependent upon where you work whether they would require you to take the clinical skills portion or not. I’m assuming clinical skills is referring to the megacode series. Or how about at a location sponsored by the American Heart Association where it’s most likely that the written and clinical skills portions of the test will be administered? Thanks Jeff!

    • Your Question: “As far as recertifying for the ACLS what do you recommend taking?”

      Most hospitals and healthcare facilities only except American Heart Association ACLS certification. This requires both a hands on skill station and a written test. I would not pay money for any other certification. If you take an “100% online” ACLS certification you may learn something but the “certification” will be worthless in most situations.

      Your question:
      “Would taking an on-line ACLS test be acceptable where you can take the test and upon passing receive your score and printable certificate right away with a hard copy of your ACLS card mailed shortly thereafter? ”

      This type of “online” certification will not be accepted by most healthcare facilities. These type of courses are not AHA, and they use deceptive and unethical practices in that they say things that make them appear to be AHA approved.

      “How about at a location sponsored by the American Heart Association where it’s most likely that the written and clinical skills portions of the test will be administered?”

      Google search “American Heart Association Class locator” so that you can look up a class location.

      I hope I have answered your questions sufficiently.
      Kind regards,

  18. Your course helped me pass the easiest ACLS skills assessment test I have ever taken before. I just took the skills assessment about 20 minutes ago and i passed with flying colors. I thank you for course. It is very thorough and up to date.

  19. Your website is the best I have ever been on!! Thank you! Your videos are not only interesting they keep your attention, and even your algorithm are easy and clear. Much better than the AHA new circle. i am a surgical nurse and have struggled for years trying to renew ACLS with AHA handbook. Your site makes it all so easy to understand and has everything you need to be sucessful. Only a fellow nurse could have done such an excellent job . Again thank you

  20. Easiest testing I have EVER done for ACLS, thanks to this site! So, thank you and your staff for providing this resource. FYI, when I tested, it was stated by the individual teaching the class, Adenosine12 mg can be given twice after the first dose at 6 mg for the tachy rhythms, if indicated. I believe one of the practice test questions asks how many times after a 6mg dose, then 12mg dose, could Adenosine be given and the answer was 0.
