The majority of facilities require their employees to obtain their BLS recertification along with their ACLS recertification every two years. Several important subjects and skills are reviewed in our online BLS recertification that is not covered in ACLS renewal courses, such as AEDs.

Every employer has a different set of guidelines and requirements on the amount of time you are allowed to let your BLS certification renewal lapse, if any. We generally recommend that you do not allow your recertification to be expired for more than 60 days, but again, please make an inquiry to your employer to discern the amount of time they will actually allow you to be technically uncertified.
