With all the medical issues that are prominent in the United States, more and more employers require their employees have their certifications up-to-date and current. If you’re going into a career in law enforcement or at many medical facilities, your employer may require you to have your BLS (Basic Life Support) certification. Having this certification demonstrates that you know what to do in the event of an emergency. BLS certification goes hand in hand with CPR and AED as well.
The next tier for your certification is ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support). You’ll see nurses, doctors, and EMTs gaining their ACLS certifications so they can perform their jobs to the highest levels. Finally, our PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) certification is perfect for daycare providers, coaches, or anyone who works with adolescents.
If your certification renewal is coming up, we offer you the chance to take the class at your leisure when the time is convenient for you. If you are required to or if you’d like to take more than one certification class, we offer package deals to make the process easier for you.
If you’re interested in gaining your CPR certification, or your certification in AED/First Aid, we have comprehensive online courses that can help you achieve this goal.

After you’ve studied the class materials, you can take the multiple-choice certification test. There is no time limit, so you can take the test at a comfortable pace. You will not have access to your study materials while you’re taking the test, but there are unlimited retakes if you don’t pass the first time. When you pass, you can print a digital copy of your certification and wait while we mail the hard copy to your home.
