All of the ACLS courses are held at Startbeat Training Center in Baltimore, Maryland. Times are 8AM – 4:30PM unless otherwise noted. Cost is discounted at $100 (usually a $125.00 course) for all ACTIVE CMS employees and $125 for non-Cms employees. Checks are payable in advance to Chesapeake Medical Staffing – NOT to Startbeat. A one-time payroll deduction is available.
If the CMS associate is actively practicing in the ED or a critical care clinical setting, the instructor will allow the associate to take the one-day recertification course up to 6 months beyond the current ACLS expiration date. If an associate has expired more than 6 months, it is recommended he/she take the entire 2-day course.
The ACLS book is NOT included in the price. The instructor does not use the book, but it is available for purchase at the class site for $27.50 payable directly to the instructor. There are condensed instructional materials specific to the course distributed to the class the day of the course. CMS has copies of these materials, if an associate requests it ahead of the course for review. It is NOT necessary to review the instructional materials ahead of the course in order to pass the test.
Please call us at 410-321-4267 between the hours of 7:30am to 4:00pm or contact Human Resources with any questions or to verify your spot in class.
PLEASE remember to fax us a copy of your updated and signed ACLS card, both front and back, to keep in your file.
