Advanced Life Support classes are only HCPs with valid Basic Life Support for HCPs training credentials.

The truth behind the statistics
Statistically speaking, four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home. As a rescuer, that means that the person that you save is most likely a parent, spouse, sibling, or child. Over 300,000 cardiac arrests actually happen outside the hospital. The worst part is that out of all these cardiac arrests, only 30 percent receive CPR from a bystander.
According to recent studies by the CDC, one in every four deaths is caused by heart disease. Ischemic heart disease is actually the leading cause of death in the world, followed by stroke. In the US, heart disease is the leading cause of death in both sexes, with more than half the total number of deaths being men. The most common type of heart disease is coronary artery disease, killing over 380,000 Americans yearly.
CPR certification is typically not a requirement for registered HCPs to work in their profession. However, if you work in a hospital or a large, organized, medical institution, there is an increased likelihood that your employer will require you to get trained in both basic and advanced CPR.
All of the courses that are available at Las Vegas CPR are certification courses. You will receive a training certificate that is valid for two years after you complete the training program. Before expiration, renewal can be done through a re-certification class.
