Several training centers are closed due to closures across the country.
The American Heart Association has issued Interim Guidance on Extensions for AHA cards in response to COVID 19.
Based on these recommendations, Medely will allow BLS, ACLS and PALS expiration dates to extend for 120 days beyond the renewal date if the card expires during March 2020 thru June 2020 due to the inability to complete training as a result of COVID 19. Any card expiring on or after July 2020 will need to be renewed.
Acceptance of these extensions will be at each facility's discretion.
In the event you need to re-new your ACLS, PALS, and/or BLS certifications, Medely has been able to secure a 30% discount on all courses with ProMed Certifications. Just enter the code: medelycert at check-out.
Please note that the most widely accepted ACLS, PALS, BLS class is an in-person AHA certification course. Type of certification required is subject to each facility's Policy & Procedure. Hospitals typically require AHA certification (in-person course), while many outpatient facilities will accept either (online or in-person). Medely does not subsidize the cost of these courses.
