About the Course

Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) Certification and Recertification at WISER using the Laredal Heart Code System.

The Heart Code ACLS course is designed for those individuals that are interested in self paced, PC Driven ACLS certification and recertification. Providers are presented with realistic patient cases and are required to interact with the program to assess the patient, formulate a treatment plan based on the ACLS algorithms and administer treatment.


  • This is a self-paced, self-driven certification and recertification program

  • This is an instructorless program There are two parts to the program:
    • Part I: The didactic portion requires the participants to complete the computer based scenarios and written exam, we recommend completing this portion at home. This takes an estimated 4-5 hours to complete, but could take longer. Please print the certificate at the end of Part I and bring it to WISER for Part II.

    •  Part II: The skills portion is done independently utilizing a computer and a sensored manikin at WISER. An estimated 1 hour should be allotted to complete this portion.
