Everything you need to know in order to determine whether or not you are able to complete your ACLS Certification online.


In today’s modern world, the benefits of getting your ACLS Certification or Recertification done online are obvious. Being able to complete an ACLS course from your computer, tablet, or mobile phone is simply more convenient, flexible, and cost-friendly than the in-person counterpart.

  

The only question left to ask is whether or not getting your ACLS Certification from an online provider is an option for you in the first place. This ultimately depends upon the standards set forth by your particular employer, as there are no uniform national or state standards on this matter.

  

Unfortunately, there isn’t an all-inclusive list that displays which hospitals and institutions allow online ACLS Certifications and which do not. The process of determining which side of this hypothetical list your employer falls upon is a relatively simple task.

  

The first thing to determine is whether your employer requires an American Heart Association (AHA) ACLS Certification. If so, you will not be able to take an entirely online ACLS course, as all AHA-approved ACLS courses must include an in-person practical assessment.

If you are not required to have an AHA ACLS Certification and your employer does not require that you obtain your certification from a specific provider, then you will be able to take an entirely online ACLS course. For those of you who fall under this category, it’s time start prepping!

  

If you are unsure whether or not your employer will accept an online ACLS Certification course but still want to get certified today, you can take comfort in the fact that all eMedCert courses are backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee that allows you to be fully reimbursed should you find out that your employer does not accept online certifications.
