Taking Renewal Courses Without A Current Course Completion Card 

ACLS/PALS: Students may take the ACLS Renewal or PALS Renewal courses even if their current provider card has been lost or expired. However, students who can not present a current course completion card be given the option of "remediation"- therefore you must pass the skills testing and written exam on the first attempt or else you will be required to return to complete the full provider course (AHA Program Administration Manual, page 51).

BLS for Healthcare Providers: For BLS courses the renewal course is the same as the initial course. There is no separate course for renewal students.


CEUs (Continuing Education Units)

The ACLS full course and PALS full courses qualify for CEUs under the Massachusetts Board of Nursing.  BLS courses, ACLS Renewals, or PALS Renewals do NOT qualify for CEUs.  For other licensing boards please contact the board directly to check if the class you are taking at CPR World qualifies for CEUs.

Receiving Your Course Completion Card

Students will receive an email from the AHA within 24 hours of completing their course.  Upon receipt of the email, you can log onto the AHA to retrieve your ecard.    In some rare circumstances, there may be an unforeseen delay.  Please contact us if you do not receive your confirmation within 24 hours and we will research it for you.  Emails will be sent only if the ACLS or PALS Pre-Course Self-Assessment has been completed and given to CPR World. 




BLS for Healthcare Providers and ACLS are two separate classes with two separate course completion cards. BLS for Healthcare Providers covers several concepts that ACLS does not, such as pediatric/infant emergencies and choking. ACLS certification does not include BLS for Healthcare Providers certification.

Renewing ACLS & BLS On The Same Day

Some ACLS Renewal courses have a "BLS add-on" option. For these courses, you have the option of saving time by renewing your BLS for Healthcare Providers certification on the same day as the ACLS Renewal course for a cost of $119. BLS add-ons last approximately two hours and are held directly after the ACLS Renewal course. 

This option is offered only for ACLS Renewal classes that are marked with a (*) on our Schedule & Sign-up page

Mixing and Matching 2-Day Classes

All 2-day classes (ACLS or PALS) are scheduled for 2 consecutive days. If you can not come on the Day 2 that is scheduled, you may attend Day 2 of another week's class if you contact us in advance to make this request. You must attend Day 2 within 60 days of when you attend for Day 1.

Leaving Classes Early / Coming Late

Please sign up for a class only if you are able to arrive at the scheduled start time and stay until the approximate end time posted on the Sign-up page.  The required practical skills test and written exam are administered at the end of each course, therefore students may not leave early.  Late students are admitted at the discretion of CPR World.

ACLS Renewal and PALS Renewal Preparation

Click on the link at the bottom of our website to take the AHA Pre-Course Self-Assessment.  This is mandatory to complete prior to class. This will familiarize you with the material you will be learning in class.  Bring your results to class or email them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  The completion of this Assessment is a mandatory part of the course and is a requirement in receiving your certificate.   Some helpful hints for completing the pre-course:  1.  Duration of the pre-course is 30-45 minutes. 2. You must start the course and finish in the same sitting.  3.  Do not switch computers because your work will not be saved.    4. Do not use the back button.

What to Bring/Wear

Wear comfortable clothing.

Please bring your textbook/student manual if you already have one in your possession. If you do not have one you may purchase one at CPR World on the day of class.

We recommend bringing a sweater for summer classes due to the temperature we keep the classroom.
