As one of California’s biggest medical communities, Orange County requires certified individuals who are at the top of the industry standard. Many certifications are needed for emergency personnel like EMTs, firefighters, nurses, paramedics, lifeguards, and more. One certification that is very important and makes you invaluable is the ACLS certification, or Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support certification.

What is ACLS?

Advanced cardiovascular life support, or ACLS, is the training that is required to properly assist a person who has suffered a stroke, cardiac arrest, or other life-threatening heart conditions. Although the certification is mandatory for certain fields, other institutions that may not require an ACLS class or certificate will give your resume an extra look when you have gone through ACLS training because of the countless cases of cardiovascular accidents that happen daily.

What is an ACLS Certification and how long does it last?

An ACLS certificate is given out by the American Heart Association when you are deemed properly trained in advanced cardiovascular life support. ACLS certification through the American Heart Association is the one that is trusted by all medical facilities. An ACLS certification card lasts for two years and can be easily renewed through an American Heart Association-approved training facility. All you have to do is sit through an open class in one of these institutions, and you will renew your certification.
