BLS/ACLS courses for non-hospital facilities privileging applications and medical staff renewal
Beginning January 1, 2022, basic life support (BLS) and advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) courses must have a hands-on component and any course that is entirely online will not be acceptable. This applies to initial applications as well as renewal for current medical staff.
Current BLS and ACLS are a requirement for medical staff working in non-hospital facilities. Current is defined as two years from the date the course was taken.
The Emergency Training Requirements policy outlines exemptions and requirements.
