The CTC is a key component of the Emergency Cardiovascular Care Training Network. Each Training Center signs an Agreement with the American Heart Association (AHA) to provide Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Basic Life Support (BLS), and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) training programs to the community. The CTC is dedicated to providing quality programs and helps strengthen the chain of survival in South Carolina.
