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

Typically students receive their course completion card on the day of class. In some rare circumstances, there is an unforeseen delay in card shipments. In these situations, students will self-address an envelope at CPR World and cards are sent in the mail within 7 days.

Lost Cards

Lost cards may be reprinted for a fee of $25 per card. Please click here to order a replacement card.


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 $99. BLS add-ons last approximately one hour 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 on 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 Schedule & 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.
