Per current AHA program administration guidelines, A BLS CPR card is NOT required for this course, but you must be proficient in Adult BLS for healthcare provider skills and your skills will be reviewed and evaluated as part of the ACLS Provider Course. BLS certification is not included with ACLS course registration. Students that are not confident in their BLS CPR Skills should register for a BLS Course prior to attending the ACLS Course. Many ACLS courses offered through Cascade Training Center include an option to renew your BLS/CPR for Healthcare Providers credential. You may see an option to purchase this as a connected class. If that option is not available at checkout please call our Customer Support Center at (877) 277-6778 for more information.

The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in BLS, ACLS, and PALS and has developed instructional materials for this purpose.

Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course material, do not represent income to the Association.
