Continuing Professional Development (short course)
Successful candidates will receive a Resuscitation Council (UK) ALS provider certificate, which is valid for four years
Learn to perform advanced life support to further assist patients in emergency situations.
The Resuscitation Council (UK) Advanced Life Support (ALS) course is a standardised national course teaching evidence-based resuscitation guidelines and skills to healthcare professionals in the United Kingdom.
The course will give you the knowledge and skills you need to:
You'll be continually assessed through clinical simulations that allow you to demonstrate the core competencies you've learned. These include airway management, high quality CPR and defibrillation and cardiac arrest management.
At the end of the course you will have a final assessment based on management of a cardiac arrest simulation and a MCQ paper. If successful, you'll receive a Resuscitation Council (UK) ALS provider certificate.
Our course is designed for you if you're a healthcare professional who's expected to apply life support skills as part of your clinical duties, or to teach them on a regular basis.
To apply you should hold, or be in training for, a professional healthcare qualification.
The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
You’ll be a health care professional registered with the appropriate council, for example the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC), General Medical Council; (GMC) or Health and Care Professions Councils (HCPC).
You'll currently be working in a clinical setting and hold a professional healthcare qualification, or be in training for such a qualification.
