The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Advanced Life Support (ALS) course is a standardised national course teaching evidence-based resuscitation guidelines and skills to healthcare professionals in Australia. The ALS course has been co-badged from the Resuscitation Council (UK) European Resuscitation Council ALS Ccourse, which has also been adopted by the European Resuscitation Council (ERC).
All co-badged courses in Australia are regulated by the ARC. The course credentials are cross-recognised by the RC (UK), New Zealand Resuscitation Council (NZRC) and the European Resuscitation Council ERC.
ALS certificates provided by the NZRC RC(UK), (ERC) are recognised by the ARC. The RC (UK) and ERC use the same evidence based teaching material, program and assessment processes.
