Over 100,000 health care professionals certified
The American Heart Association (AHA) defines Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) as an algorithmic series of medical procedures and techniques designed for the urgent treatment of cardiac arrest, stroke and similar life threatening cardiac emergencies. ACLS expands upon basic life support with more advanced skills such as defibrillation, IV use, intubation, and ECG analysis. Many hospitals and other medical facilities require this advanced training for anyone who may be working with cardiac patients.
Our certifications and renewal training courses are 100 percent guaranteed for certification proof and acceptance. Because we use the same criteria and training as classroom courses, our online certifications are just as readily accepted.
All of our courses are designed by practicing physicians and are based on the latest AHA Standards and Guidelines (2015). In addition, all of our courses meet the same guidelines and standards as the ECC/ILCOR, and OSHA.
Since ACLS is not a lifetime pass, we also offer ACLS recertifications. Certifications are valid for two years. Like most medical certifications, you must remain current on the changing guidelines and procedures. This is especially true for ACLS due to the hands-on method and technical knowledge involved. Renewal with our ACLS recertification ensures that you are up-to-date with any new procedures and helps build on the skills and training you have already received.
AMC makes renewal more convenient with our online recertification courses. Rather than spending your valuable free time in a classroom to complete the required recertification, AMC offers the convenience of online courses that are every bit as thorough, reliable, and accepted as traditional classroom recertification courses.

Questions about ACLS?
ACLS certification and training greatly increases the ability of medical professionals to save lives, so it is useful for any healthcare profession. Typically, ACLS provider cards are required of licensed nurses, physicians and professionals who work under the supervision of licensed physicians, like paramedics or physician assistants. Professionals who work in intensive care units, emergency rooms and other medical emergency settings may also require certification. Often, the decision about whether a certification is required is left to employers.
ACLS certification is not a lifetime pass. Like most medical certifications, you must remain current on changing guidelines and procedures. Certifications are usually valid for two years. This is especially true of ACLS due to the hands-on method and technical knowledge involved.
