Advanced Life Support – Initial Workshop +/- Competency Assessment Day

The aim of this program is to enhance participant skills in Advanced Life Support (ALS). Using the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines as a basis for the content of this program, participants will be taken through the theory and practice of basic life support, recognition of life-threatening arrhythmias, medications and the theory and practice of defibrillation skills.

Competency testing of practical and theoretical knowledge is held one month after initial training. Participants are tested in groups of three using a lifelike scenario in their own work environment.

Each group takes around 45 minutes.

Duration: 8 Hours
