Accelerated HeartCode ACLS Competency Agenda Outline

The student-to-instructor ratio is variable with maximum of 6 students to 1 instructor. It is recommended that a minimum ratio for the best student experience is 3 students to 1 instructor.

This agenda has been created to give the instructor the flexibility to adjust the agenda according to the needs and experience of a given student or group of students. Required content must be completed as described in the appropriate Lesson Plans.

A CPR feedback device or manikin must be used for the testing portion of the High-Quality BLS lesson.

All times below are approximate. Total instructional time with 3:1 student-to-instructor ratio can range from 27 minutes when instructors teach only the required lessons to approximately 2 hours 32 minutes when instructors teach the required lessons and all or part of the optional and strongly recommended content, not including breaks, transition time, or remediation time.
