About This Website
This site is all about making ACLS simple and giving you the confidence you need to not only pass ACLS certification, but truly master ACLS in a very short time.
NERVOUS, MEMORY BLOCK, TONGUE TIED.
The above words describe the way that I used to feel when taking the AHA ACLS provider course. The stress would begin a week or two before the class and then continue all the way through the ACLS megacode skills station, the ACLS Written test, and sometimes even in real codes.
I would spend hours reading the ACLS Provider Manual and memorizing the ACLS Algorithms, but it seemed that I still felt nervous and unprepared for the provider course.
When I started this site, it was a project to help me learn and master ACLS.
I can tell you that I no longer experience stress with ACLS. I designed this site to be simple, interactive, and enjoyable so that you can learn and master ACLS in a low stress environment.
