Online Course Information
The eACLS™ course features two components: knowledge review and practical skills-check. If your employer does not require a practical skills-check, you simply need to successfully complete the knowledge portion online before you can print out your eACLS™ Course Completion Certificate and continuing education credits receipts.
eACLS™ covers the ten advanced cardiac life support topics required for certification:
- Acute coronary syndromes
- AED use
- Narrow complex tachycardia
- Pulseless electrical activity
- Respiratory arrest
- Ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia
- Wide complex tachycardia
The online course takes an average of four hours to complete (approximately 20 minutes per topic). After completing all 10 sections of the course, a 50-question final exam follows. A score of 80% or higher on the final exam is required.
Practical Skills Information
If you wish to earn an official wallet-sized eACLS™ Course Completion Card endorsed by the American College of Emergency Physicians, you must also complete a practical skills examination at an approved eACLS™ Educational Center. Village Ambulance Service is an approved eACLS™ Education Center.
You must print out the acknowledgement certificate verifying that you completed the knowledge component of the course before participating in a practical skills examination at an approved eACLS™ Educational Center. It will take approximately 30–45 minutes to complete the four required skill stations:

Airway and Ventilation Management (BVM, ET, Combitube, and LMA use)
ECG Arrhythmia Recognition and Treatment Modalities (Sixteen ECGs and patient presentations)
