The Fastest, Simplest Path to Certification

The ACLS.com fully web-based program gives you the fastest, most accessible path to certification or recertification in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Basic Cardiac Life Support and Neonatal Resuscitation Program. After completing this course you will earn 8 continuing education hours for certification and 4 hours for renewal.

All Material Provided by Certified Physicians

Our study guide--written entirely by qualified, certified physicians--comprehensively covers the core material in the ACLS, BLS, PALS, and NRP provider manual and provides a level of accuracy and quality unequaled by guides written by non-certified personnel. After purchasing our guide, you will receive access right away through easy login instructions provided via email.

Convenient, Instant-AccessAt Any Time From Any Device

Because our service is provided entirely online, you can take your exam at a time that's convenient for you and fits your schedule--from any device be it desktop, laptop, mobile phone, or tablet. In addition, rather than waiting to find out your results, you will receive your score right away through our instant grading process. After you meet the minimum score requirement of 80%, we will immediately send you a complete, printable digital copy of your official provider card. Within 7 to 10 business days, we will also mail you a hard copy of your new credentials at no additional cost.

Completely Web-Based Training

ACLS.com provides a completely web-based experience that does away with the need for costly printed study materials. In addition to an all-inclusive study guide, you will receive access to video training, mega-code reviews, and practice exams designed to prepare you thoroughly for actual testing. After completing our study guide and watching our video reviews, you will have everything you need to complete your exam successfully.

Continuing Education Credits

Our comprehensive coursework will ensure you’re prepared to pass your certification or renewal exam, and you’ll also receive a number of continuing education credits. Those earning their certification will receive 8 credits and those renewing will receive 4 credits.

Set Your Own Schedule

When you take a course in a classroom setting, you have to shuffle your schedule to meet the demands of an entire day for renewal or 2 days for certification. In contrast, when you take our online course, you can set aside time when it's most convenient and complete your training in as little as 1 or 2 hours. This is especially true since our materials are just a click away and available without time restrictions.

Unlimited Practice Opportunities

Through our program, you will gain unlimited access to practice exams and pretests that cover all of the material you will need to know for cert or recert. Unlike some practice exams, which repeat the exam materials in a preset order, our exams are dynamic and provide a new and beneficial experience each time around. What's more, you can practice as little or as often as you need to prepare yourself.

Optional Clinical Skills Check Sheet

Our program is fully web-based and doesn't require any extra in-person element. However, some employers and professional organizations ask ACLS applicants to complete a clinical skills check form. If you need to fulfill such a requirement, we can provide you with a skills verification form that you can take to a local testing center or clinician; and this will verify that you completed your evaluation through our program.

Unique Exam Benefits

Unlike a classroom setting where your exam time is limited, our online process gives you the ability to slow down and go at your own pace. We find that this leads to greater relaxation during testing and better odds of achieving a passing score. Even if you don't pass the first time around, we give you the option to retake the exam at no cost as many times as you need. Since you have instant access to your testing results, you will get invaluable feedback on the areas where you need improvement.

Customer Satisfaction

We thrive on our ability to provide the best possible experience for online ACLS training. With the help of feedback from tens of thousands of customers, we continually seek to improve the services we make available. Feel free to contact us at any time at support@acls.com and tell us about your user experience.

  • What other materials do I need for my course?

    Nothing. We’ve assembled everything you need in an online format, including all the lessons in multi-media format and free study guide you can download or view online. There is no additional charge for the final exam, grading, or issuing your credentials.

  • Will my certification card indicate online training?

    No. The documents we issue are what you would get taking a classroom course. The training we provide is taken from the American Heart Association guidelines and checked by qualified medical doctors.

  • How long do I have to complete the course and take the final exam?

    Access is granted for two full years. Some students finish in a single sitting and others learn and test over several days to fit their schedules. We allow extended access so that you can revisit to review, even after passing your final exam.
