Is the ARLS course equivalent to ALS1 or ALS2?
The ARLS course is equivalent to the ARC ALS Level 2 (although we would say that it is far better!), but the structure is very different with more online and continuing education components.
ALS2 courses usually require two days of face-to-face training. Why does this course only have one day?
Typically, the first day of ALS2 training is dedicated to covering pre-learning material. The structure of this ARLS course means you save this first day by completing the pre-learning (only 2.5hrs) in your own time, at your own pace. You will receive a higher quality learning experience in less time compared to the two-day ALS2 courses!
Is the ARLS course approved by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC)?
The ARC does not approve or accredit courses. However, this course is designed to adhere to ARC guidelines. Professor Paul Middleton has previously taught for the ARC and has held the position of Chair of the ARC NSW branch.
Is the ARLS course accredited for CPD points?
Yes, the ARLS course is accredited with ACEM, ACRRM, RACP and CICM. Accreditation with RACGP, ANZCA and RACS are in progress. You can find out more about CPD points on the AICE website.
Will I receive a certificate of completion?
Yes, this will be emailed to you once you have completed the online spaced education program post the one-day course. The questions comprise the assessment of the course and will be emailed to you at regular intervals over approximately 7 weeks.
