    ACLS certification

    Advertisements



    Hey...
    quick question for anyone in clinicals right now...
    does the school accept ACLS certification that is done completely online so it is NOT approved by AHA. Cus right now I am having an extremely hard time finding a class that is approved by AHA...But i have found a course that is done completely online but not AHA approved.

    I'm not sure that question is odd.

    BLS and ACLS courses must be certified by either AHA or Red Cross. A course taught entirely online would not be acceptable for either either. These courses include a performance component which cannot be taught or learned online.

    On the other hand, you do not need these to be acccepted to medical school. These are taught while you are in medical school. For example, BLS is taught in the 4th semester.

    I found it best to go to a class to do the ACLS but it is a pain. There are a lot of half online half practical courses offered and most of them are at least Red Cross.
