Can I certify for the first time through this course?

Our online training is the fastest method of earning your certification or renewal. You may take our course on your own time, and you are not required to attend a classroom session. Our courses were created and reviewed by certified and licensed physicians. Our exams take about 1 hour on average to complete.

Upon passing the final exam, a PDF provider card is sent via email. A wallet provider card is shipped with free same-day shipping along with a CEU/CME certificate. You will receive 8 CEUs for certification or 4 CEUS for recertification. The exam is not timed, and 3 retakes are granted at no extra cost.

Can I recertify with this course?

The National ACLS Testing Center is a provider of convenient and cost effective ACLS, BLS and PALS testing and training. We provide initial ACLS, BLS and PALS certification for first time trainees as well as renewal. Our course materials have been updated with the latest 2012 AHA guidelines and clinical recommendations. Earn your initial certification or recertification on your own time with our online nationally accepted classes.

Am I required to be currently certified to take this online course?

We offer you instant results; your answers are scored right after they are submitted. We email you a PDF card immediately upon passing the course. The online exam is available any time you need to be certified, 24/7. There is simply no faster or more convenient way for you to obtain your ACLS, PALS or BLS renewal or initial certification. Your temporary PDF card can suffice as verification of your certification until you receive your wallet card via standard mail.

Do I receive a Certification Card if I pass?

We do not require you to complete a clinical skills test in order to receive your ACLS, PALS or BLS card. Our online courses are comprehensive and cover everything you will need to know to earn your initial ACLS certification or recertification (as well as PALS and BLS). If your employer requires a skills test, we can help provide a list of skills testing centers where you can complete a skills test on your own time.

For how long is my certification active?

The online tests and classes at the National ACLS Testing Center are a schedule friendly and convenient option for earning your ACLS, BLS or PALS card. Our courses and our exams are available 24/7. You may choose to go right to the ACLS, BLS or PALS exam or you may study and prepare prior to taking the final exam. With our convenient and unique training system you may receive your renewal or initial certification card in as little as 1-2 hours.

What do I need to complete this course?

Our comprehensive online courses include all the necessary training material to receive your initial cert or recert. Our PALS, BLS and ACLS certification courses are slightly more detailed than our recert classes. The recertification courses include all the review material that you need to pass the PALS, BLS or ACLS renewal exam and maintain your certification status.

How quickly do I get my exam results?

Our ACLS, PALS and BLS exams and courses can be accessed from any type of computer (Mac or PC) as well as mobile devices like the iPhone and Android devices, and tablet PCs such as the iPad and Android tablets. The PALS and ACLS exam is 50 questions and the BLS final is 30 questions. The exams are not timed, and your results are instantly scored. If you do not pass on your initial attempt, you may attempt the exam up to 3 more times.

After passing the exam where is my Digital Certification Card?

You may access the online training material for up to 2 years after you complete the course including updates. This access allows you to review the material whenever you wish and stay current with the latest protocols and guidelines for emergency care. Our course materials are regularly updated with the newest American Heart Association recommendations and guidelines for ACLS, PALS and BLS training.
