private family practice PA-C here. looking to change specalities and need new ACLS and BLS certification. I was thinking of using promed; it looks pretty simple. I notice on the sample card that it mentions american heart association but obviously is not actually distributed by AHA. Will this be a problem when applying to jobs? Should I just take the time and got to AHA class in person?
My work is offering it for free, but it's a day of my life, and it's not soon enough to avoid having to take the regular ACLS recert.
Anyone take it and have thoughts, opinions or commentary on its value?
Here's the AHA blurb for anyone who's interested:
My part-time employer recently offered an abbreviated BLS/ACLS/PALS renewal course, and while it was brief and much more focused than what I'm used to with the AHA, it was certified through ASHI, who I've heard of but don't know much about.
Does anyone have experience using ASHI instead of AHA certs for credentialing and any problems thereof?
Can I use ASHI certs for NCCPA CME hours?
Anybody have experience with https://emedcert.com/ for ACLS, PALS initial certification?
This is a 100% online course but they do not provide an AHA card. I'd appreciate if anybody with experience can chime in. Has any employer rejected a non-AHA certification?
