Take Us for a Test Drive

See for yourself how AMC’s certification exams work, without any commitment. We’ve made it possible for you to take our free Pretest, consisting of ten multiple-choice questions, so you can get a feel for how simple the process of online testing is with AMC.  All sample questions are derived from the BLS provider manual (purchased separately) and adhere to the latest AHA and ECC guidelines. Correct answers and explanations will be shown once the practice test is submitted. Good Luck!

An example of the nature of the training materials that are provided to you is:

BLS/ CPR (Children 1 year old- puberty)

Key differences from adults:

  • Compression- ventilation ratio
    • 2-rescuers: 15:2
    • 1 rescuer: 30:2 (UNIVERSAL, lone rescuer ratio, except with newly born infants)
  • Compression depth: at least 1/3 depth of chest, ABOUT 2 in (5 cm)
  • Compression technique: may use 1 or 2 handed compressions
  • When to activate ERS:
    • ALONE and did NOT witness arrest: provide 2 mins CPR before ERS activation and obtaining AED/ defibrillator
    • Sudden, witnessed arrest: leave victim, activate ERS, obtain AED/ defibrillator, return to child

Once you feel comfortable with the materials, and therefore, Basic Life Support (BLS), you will be required to demonstrate your proficiency by taking a 25-question exam. A score of 80% is required to pass the exam. The grading is instant, and your exam results are shown in your account as well as emailed to the email address you have provided. Once you have successfully completed the exam, a digital Basic Life Support (BLS) Provider Card is made immediately accessible to you.

Examples of the exam questions that will populate your test are:

Rescue breaths for infants and children should be administered how often?

  1. Every 3 to 5 seconds (12 to 20 breaths per minute)
  2. Every 10 to 12 seconds (5 to 6 breaths per minute)
  3. Every 5 to 6 seconds (10 to 12 breaths per minute)
  4. Every 20 to 30 seconds (2 to 3 breaths per minute)

Where should you attempt to perform a pulse check in a child from 1 year of age to puberty?

  1. Brachial artery
  2. Popliteal artery
  3. Temporal artery
  4. Carotid or Femoral artery

  1. Chest compressions, Airway, Breathing
  2. Airway, Breathing, Check Pulse
