How To Earn ACLS And PALS Certification?

What is the best way to earn ACLS certification? Most importantly, how can you fit the requirements into your busy schedule? And how much will all this cost you out of pocket? Advanced cardiovascular life support (ACLS) and pediatric advanced life support (PALS) are essential certifications for medical professionals. And once you have earned the initial certifications, you will need to renew them every two years.

You can retake the tests as many times as necessary, a fact that changes the typical high-stakes aspect of testing, and will reduce your stress and anxiety – and thereby make it all the more likely that you truly learn the course material, rather than simply glossing it for quick, superficial memorization merely for the purpose of passing a test. And the even better news is that the certification you earn is recognized by 97% of U.S. hospitals.
