BLS and ACLS are different certifications that fit hand in hand. CSRE makes it simple to renew your American Heart Association BLS Certification at the same time you are earning your initial ACLS Certification.
The ACLS Certification Class is recommended for initial providers who are less comfortable with cardiac rhythm recognition. This AHA ACLS course encompasses more than 10-hours of education. CSRE makes use of the Pre-course Videos and Self Assessment from the American Heart Association to allow students to study at their own pace, before participating in the instructor led, in-person class day.
BLS Renewal Add-On
At the time of registration for your ACLS Certification Class, there is an “add-on” option for the BLS eLearning + Skills Session. This BLS Renewal course format allows the student to watch the videos and take the written test online through the AHA HeartCode program. Then you meet with an instructor to demonstrate your skills and renew your certification. CSRE appends this in-person skills session to the conclusion of your ACLS Certification Class, thereby making efficient use of the student’s time.
BLS & ACLS Renewal – the Double Play
If you are renewing your ACLS Certification and would like to renew your BLS at the same time, register for our BLS & ACLS Double Play. You will receive two HeartCode programs to complete online and then meet with an instructor for a combined skills session appointment.
