Why Train with ACLS EDU?

At the onset of a cardiac emergency, time is life. A heart attack can strike at any moment, and the effects can be devastating. ACLS certification is worth it to provide life-saving care and maximizing a patient's chance of survival. ACLS EDU offers AHA approved and accredited ACLS classes to teach you everything you need to know to help save lives.

Who needs to become ACLS certified?

First responders and healthcare professionals who work in critical and emergency care are required to be ACLS certified. Although you may not be a cardiovascular specialist, ACLS certification is still valuable in any healthcare profession.

How do I become ACLS certified?

Students must attend and complete an accredited ACLS certification course to become certified. A typical ACLS class curriculum is structured around hands-on exercises and emergency simulations to prepare you for life-threatening, on-the-job situations.


How do I get an ACLS certificate?

After completing the ACLS certification course, students are evaluated according to AHA guidelines. Upon passing the evaluation, students are issued an ACLS Provider Course Completion eCard that is valid for two years. 

Where do I take an ACLS certification course?

ACLS EDU offers industry-leading ACLS courses led by award-winning instructors to help you master the skills for ACLS certification. We provide multiple class dates and training sites across southern California to accommodate your schedule. Students may choose onsite training classes or an online ACLS course presented via Zoom in the comfort of your home. Online classes require attending an additional Skills Session to perform skills at a separate training site or at home with required hands-on equipment. Our online ACLS class brings industry-leading training right to your home. Classes are now available in all 50 states to best suit your needs.

How do I renew my ACLS certification?

ACLS certification is valid for two years and requires recertification. If your certification expires, you will need to retake the initial ACLS class. Many healthcare professions will not allow you to work on the unit if your certification has lapsed, so don’t delay your recertification. ACLS EDU takes away the stress of renewing your certification with our ACLS renewal courses, available online and at AHA-approved training sites.

Do I Get CE Credits for ACLS?

Your road to ACLS certification is easier than ever on account of the flexible schedule of ACLS classes held by the best instructors. As long as you have the necessary qualifications for ACLS, nothing is stopping you from going for it. But whether you are required to be ACLS-certified, want to change your career path or improve your job prospects, you might be wondering if ACLS also counts as continuing education in your state. Read on!

How Often Do I Have to Renew My ACLS Certification?

If you’re an healthcare professional with an expired ACLS certification, you know what you’ve got to do: it’s time to get your ACLS recertification! If your job requires you to be ACLS-certified, there are many sound reasons to renew your ACLS certification. One such reason is that this approach employs more advanced techniques than the Basic Life Support program which the ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) program was based on does. Firstly, the schedule for the ACLS recert course is flexible and convenient, the course itself is provided in a stress-free environment and you can actually learn from it even if your career spans decades. Secondly, an ACLS recertification will not only prepare you to think on your feet and potentially make life-saving decisions with an unflinching determination, but also secure your access to life-changing career opportunities.
