ACLS PROVIDER AHA 2-DAY COURSE
2015 ACLS PROVIDER MANUAL:
The American Heart Association requires ALL students to bring the 2015 AHA ACLS Provider Manual to class. There are NO EXCEPTIONS. You may purchase the book online at Defibthis.com when you register for the class or stop in to our student store and pick it up. You can also purchase the hard copy at http://aha.channing-bete.com and Amazon.com, or the ebook at https://ebooks.heart.org.
It is acknowledged that the manuals are an added expense. They are an AHA requirement that allows us to provide you with a valid AHA card at the end of your course. We encourage you to shop around for the best value. You may also ask your friends, put it out on Facebook, or go to your hospital's medical library as they often have copies on hand for just this occasion!
You are required to bring a print-out of your Precourse Assessment Completion to class. To access the Precourse Assessment, go to www.heart.org/eccstudent and type in the following code: acls15
Per the Terms and Conditions on the course registration page:
Late Policy: Please be on time: It’s good karma! We ask all students to arrive 15 minutes prior to class. If you are more than 15 minutes late to class you will have to reschedule. You will not be permitted to attend the class in session and are considered a "No-Show." There are no refunds.
Rescheduling Policy: You may reschedule one time with no penalties as long as you give us 48 hours notice. If you ask to reschedule more than once, the rescheduling fee is $15. If you reschedule with less than 48 hours notice, the rescheduling fee is one-half the course fee. There are no refunds.
No-Show Policy: Failure to appear in class or day-of-class notice will result in forfeiture of your entire course fee. There are no refunds.
Cancellation Policy: If you cancel your course, you forfeit the entire course fee. We do not give any refunds. However, if applicable per above, we will keep your payment on file for 2 years, and you may use it toward any course or product that we offer within the 2-year timeframe.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing to class. You will be practicing skills that require you to work on your hands and knees, and the course requires bending, standing, and lifting. If you have any physical condition that might prevent you from engaging in these activities, please tell an instructor. The instructor may be able to adjust the equipment if you have back, knee, or hip problems.
BRING YOUR ID:
Direct Billing Students: Please bring your employee ID.
Self-Pay Students: Please bring your photo ID.
LOCATION AND PARKING:
We are located at 1543 Pacific Avenue, Santa Cruz, CA 95060. Please ENTER through the back of the building on Cedar Street. You will see a sign on the back of our building that reads, “Defib This”. You can sign in for your class at reception, and we will direct you to the proper classroom. Please be prepared to show your photo ID at registration. You can find a comfy spot in the classroom, and grab a cup of coffee while you wait for class to start.
We strongly encourage you to arrive early to allow for time to find parking. There is a public parking garage next to our building in the Locust Street Parking Garage for $0.50 per hour with a maximum fee of $5.00 per day. Again, we suggest arriving at least 20 minutes prior to class time to find parking; we don't want you get a parking ticket!
Please note, BLS is NOT included in this course! If you need to be certified for BLS, you can either sign up for a BLS Provider course or take the BLS Challenge to renew your certification. In order to be eligible to take the BLS Challenge upon the completion of this course, your current BLS card cannot be expired. If you register for the BLS Challenge, please bring your current BLS card to the front desk upon check-in.
