How Many CME Hours Is ACLS Worth?

The amount of continuing medical education credit you can receive for getting your ACLS Certification.

One benefit of getting your online ACLS Certification is the added value of receiving continuing medical education (CME) (sometimes referred to as continuing education (CE)) credits. These days, most reputable online ACLS providers offer CME credits upon successfully completing an ACLS Certification or Recertification course, which leaves little reason to choose a program that does not award any CME credits.


The amount and type of CME credits and CE contact hours you receive can vary slightly between different providers. This should be one of the many factors you should take into consideration when choosing which online ACLS course is right for you.
