The ACLS Training Center is the first website to offer online ACLS training. Our online course provides self-directed training based upon assessment and procurement of both skills and cognitive knowledge just like any other instructor-led training. The self-directed approach to learning CPR is not new and is completely effective as AHA states*:

Studies comparing self-instruction or video-based instruction with instructor-led training demonstrate no significant differences in performance outcomes.

Our cards have been accepted in every US state and Canadian province, and over 60 countries in the Eurozone, Asia and Africa. Our 100% money-back guarantee is good for 3 months and we guarantee your employer will accept our card and you will be satisfied.

No skills test necessary for CPR courses.

Skills test: optional

You can complete our course entirely online. Every course that we offer contains everything that you need. For in-hospital providers, skills testing is strictly optional.

The test is multiple-choice format and covers patient scenarios and general course knowledge. The test has no time limit and there's no hassle of working around a classroom schedule.
