Preparing for Advanced Life Support (ALS) Course

Preparing for Advanced Life Support (ALS) Course

­Advanced Life Support (ALS) certification tends to be desired or mandatory in many job applications and is essential to have as your career progresses in the NHS.

The ALS course teaches the knowledge and skills required to:

  • recognize and treat the deteriorating patient using a structured ABCDE approach;
  • deliver standardized CPR in adults;
  • manage a cardiac arrest by working with a multidisciplinary team in an emergency situation;
