Very simple and easy from sign up until I completed my course.
This program saved me a lot of time by allowing me to complete it over several days at my convenience. I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs to recert!
I was in a crunch and had to get my ACLS and PALS courses done in a week. I'm very fortunate to have found eMedCert and completed both of my courses in a single weekend.
This is a great website. They did everything that they advertised and in a timely manner. I would recommend to anyone!
I had two questions that I needed answered, and was able to find both easily in the FAQ. This transparency led to my decision to buy, and I was very satisfied with the course thereafter.
The whole process was quick and easy, and I found the material to be easy to understand. Overall, I was very pleased with my experience.
Excellent, Quick and Efficient!
The online course information was easy to follow and thorough. The examination was challenging and I had to review my material again, but I think it helped with my overall comprehension. I recommend this course to others needing to complete an ACLS Certification quickly.
Thanks a lot for making it easy to enroll and complete my course!
First time doing an ACLS course online. Very happy with my experience, and will be back in two years to complete my course again.
Two days after recertifying in PALS, had my first ever cardiac arrest in 14 month old, and felt very comfortable handling it. Patient did well, and I was very grateful for the quality of your course. Thanks.
