Would definitely recommend taking any courses with this dynamic duo. The communication was great from Syrina and Mark really made the class easy to comprehend. He provided an open learning space and a more creative learning approach to ACLS. Hoping I can take PALS in the future with them!

I normally don't leave any reviews for things but I have to say this class was really helpful. The couple running this program are very knowledgeable and excellent at teaching. I also had to reschedule my class twice due to personal reasons and they were super understanding and flexible with me. I feel more confident as a New Grad after taking the ACLS class! Just come prepared and ready to learn!

Syrina and Mark are excellent instructors. I had Syrina for BLS and Mark for ACLS. They are both very knowledgeable and explained things in a way I understood. They are passionate about teaching the material in a way that you can understand and practice BLS/ACLS confidently.

Highly recommend Defib Hawaii. I needed to renew ACLS, BLS and PALS. Syrina was very responsive when I inquired about completing these courses and was able to work with me to find times that would fit in with my work and travel schedule. Mark was very professional and effective in teaching the courses. He has an extensive background in healthcare and was able to present to content in a way the was easy to understand and recall, instead of just regurgitating information. I went into my courses nervous, but felt completely confident in my skills and knowledge by the end.

What You’ll Learn In Our ACLS Classes

ACLS Course Overview

Our ACLS course enhances your Basic Life Support (BLS) skills, emphasizing continuous, high-quality CPR. You’ll also dive deeper into advanced concepts like team dynamics, effective communication, systems of care, and immediate post-cardiac arrest care.

The 2020 ACLS course requires EKG rhythm interpretation. If you’re not working with EKG rhythms daily, we highly recommend practicing reading EKGs before attending the class.

How long does ACLS certification last?

ACLS Certifications expire in 2 years.

What is the cost of ACLS certification in Hawaii?

Our ACLS classes start at $215. We offer course discounts for course bundles. The course manuals are not included in the cost of the class but can be purchased at registration.

Can I take the ACLS certification online?

The American Heart Association and Red Cross do not endorse online ACLS classes. However, with the addition of the Resuscitation Quality Improvement skills station, students will be able to take the AHA heartcode online, followed by an in-person skills sign-off with an electronic feedback station. This shortens the time a student needs to be in person to less than an hour.

What are the differences between ACLS and BLS?

BLS focuses on basic CPR, AED use, and initial emergency response, suitable for a wide audience, including non-medical personnel.

ACLS builds on these skills with advanced airway management, pharmacology, and cardiac care, targeting healthcare professionals managing complex emergencies in clinical settings. Both are essential for effective emergency response but cater to different levels of expertise.
