Regular CPR training is paramount for all medical professionals, including doctors, GPs, nurses, dentists, and various healthcare practitioners. Although most medical professionals are familiar with resuscitation protocols, many do not operate in acute care or clinical settings.

Without regular exposure to emergency events, skills can fade, compromising the ability to respond effectively when needed most.

ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) classes offer a vital opportunity to refresh and practice CPR techniques, ensuring proficiency remains sharp. Medical professionals can adeptly intervene in critical situations by maintaining up-to-date knowledge of CPR protocols and continually refining their skills through consistent training.
