Interested in learning about the online renewal process for the Advanced Cardiac Life Support test? Perfect! That's why we developed this site. Take a look around and check out some of the free information we've put together for you. Right now it's just the basics, but we're growing quickly!
Since we're starting with the basics, let's begin by talking about who should renew their ACLS certification online and who should not. In general, online renewal is a much more convenient process for anybody who already has an existing ACLS card than it is for somebody who is just starting from scratch. The reason for this is that all legitimate online programs require additional skills testing for students earning their initial certification.
Because the skills tests cannot be taken online, this makes the whole process less convenient. Students who already have their card, though, can often recertify or renew their card entirely online from their computers. This is because some of the online programs (the real ones that are accepted by many employers) do not require skills testing for recertification. This is not always the case. The general rule of thumb is that any course that is AHA-approved or accredited will require skills testing for recertification, while any that is approved or accredited by a different organization will not.
We have found that there are quite a few online providers for ACLS, BLS and PALS online training and certification. Most have similar offerings but we have started reviewing a few of them and will post our findings on our Online Certification Companies page.
