Will I receive an American Heart Association (AHA) card?

Yes, all American Resuscitation Council courses are accredited and allow you to receive continuing medical education (CME) credits. Each course we provide is accredited by Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and offers AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ (including ANCC, ADA, and ACPE credits). Additionally, our curriculum fully complies with the latest emergency cardiovascular care (ECC) guidelines and standards published by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). Each course offers up to eight (8) CE credits.


What is the minimum passing score on the exam?

To pass, you must achieve a score of 80% or higher. If you do not pass on your first attempt, you will have up to three attempts to succeed.


When will my American Resuscitation Council provider card expire?

Your certification will be valid for two (2) years from the day you pass the exam. This timeline is standard across BLS, ACLS, PALS, and NRP certifications.
