Step 1: Basic Chelation Self-Study Series

The basic Chelation video series offers professionals the ability to study on their own time and grasp the essential elements
of Chelation. The multi-episode series is available online for 24/7 access at your convenience. (Pre-requisite to steps 2 & 3)


  • The Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT): Connecting Silos of Scientific Information
    Tony Lamas, MD, Facc, FAHA, FESC

  • The Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT): Initial Results and Proposal for TACT2
    Tony Lamas, MD, Facc, FAHA, FESC

  • Environmental Cardiology – Heavy Metals (Lead, Arsenic, Mercury, and Cadmium)
    Dorothy Merritt, MD

  • The Biochemistry of Detoxification
    David Quig, PhD
  • Evaluation of Toxic Metal Exposure and Net Retention
    David Quig, PhD

  • Nutrition & Supportive Therapies
    Walter Crinnion, ND

  • Toxic Metals, Cardiovascular Disease and EDTA Chelation Therapy
    Jeffrey Morrison, MD

In addition to the Basic Chelation Self-Study Series, ACAM's Official Chelation Protocol, published in 2017, will be provided as a study guide for Steps 2 & 3. This in-depth manual was written by ACAM's Chelation Committee and provides the most up-to-date information available as of February 2017.

Step 2 & 3: Practicum and Exam
he Advanced Chelation Practicum is the next step, putting the theories provided in the Basic Chelation Webinar Series into hands-on practice. The workshop and practicum provides in-depth training at the necessary hands-on level by combining the information presented in the webinar with a full course of new material including metal toxicology, lead and other water contaminate updates as well as the IV Therapies practicum. This second step to the end-goal of certification is offered during the ACAM annual meeting in the fall.

3. Chelation Exam & Certification

At the end of this educational activity, attendees will:

  • Be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of lead toxicity in pediatric populations
  • Know specific lab tests that reflect pediatric lead exposure
  • Know dosing schedules of EDTA and DMSA in pediatric lead exposure
  • Know lead exposure treatment and management strategies through patient cases
  • Assess lead exposure via food, water, personal care products, homes, and occupational exposure in their patient populations
  • Assess lead exposure in both pediatric and adult populations through laboratory testing
  • Identify lead-exposed adult patients who have health conditions related to their lead exposure
  • Initiate treatment and manage treatment in lead exposed individuals and track decreased body burden through laboratory testing
  • Identify sources and conditions related to other toxic metal exposure in children and adults in order to correctly diagnose and treat these cases
  • Reference appropriate interventions in cases of metals toxicity to improve outcomes in patients who have been exposed to toxic metals
  • Learn the safety and precautions with Chelation therapy
  • Recognize the importance of nutrients added to Chelation therapy
  • Calculate the dosage of EDTA to use for specific patients (Crockroft-Gault)
  • Evaluate your patients: pre- and post-Chelation treatment
  • Initiate, administer and terminate a disodium or disodium/magnesium EDTA infusion
  • Calculate the osmolarity of a Chelation (or any other) IV solution
  • Understand how to mix and administer a Chelation infusion and IV push
