Our PALS certification course and training materials were constructed in accordance with the current American Heart Association (AHA) Provider Manual and AHA published guidelines. NHCPS' on-staff physicians regularly review and compare all course tests and materials, updating them as needed with any changes published by the American Heart Association to ensure that the certification training class you receive is always up to date!
The short answer — absolutely! Our PALS courses are made to fit the demands of your busy professional life. Many healthcare professionals are new to the concept of an online PALS certification course because until recently, online certification was not an option. Our course adheres to the latest AHA guidelines and NHCPS has a national acceptance rate of more than 98%. If your employer does not recognize your NHCPS certification, or you are unhappy for ANY reason, we offer a 100% money-back guarantee.
After you successfully complete your PALS course, your new provider card will be shipped to your address the next business day! (Please allow 3-5 business days for the provider card to arrive.) You will also receive a printable digital provider card instantly, to serve as proof of certification until your provider card arrives in the mail.
Your provider card will display your name, the NHCPS logo, course completion date, expiration date, our course provider number, and validating signature.
National Health Care Provider Solutions allows healthcare professionals to meet their continuing education requirements without sacrificing their limited time to attend a weekend certification or recertification course. NHCPS provides convenient, flexible, accessible life support education programs. We lead the industry in online certification by providing the most updated, accepted, and convenient certifications available.
Included with your PALS course is our PALS Provider Handbook in PDF format for fast, convenient study anywhere. You are able to access your course material at any time, from your internet-connected computer, smartphone, or tablet, through your NHCPS account. If you prefer to have a physical copy with you, you are able to save and print your manual as well. No in-person skills test is required, and all training materials are included with our course.
Immediately after you complete our final exam, your results are calculated, displayed in your account, and emailed to you. A digital provider card is immediately available to download and print to provide proof of certification, and a pocket card will be shipped to you the next business day (allow 3 to 5 days for delivery). Your PALS provider card will display your name, the NHCPS logo, course completion date, expiration date, our course provider number, and validating signature
The American Emergency Medical Advisory Association (AEMAA) has fully accredited for NHCPS's PALS Certification and PALS Recertification Courses, and determined Continuing Medical Education (CME) Credits for each PALS Course.
The AEMAA determined NHCPS's PALS Certification Course to be worth 10 CME Credits, and NHCPS's PALS Recertification Course to be worth 6 CME Credits. The American Heart Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics do not endorse, nor are they affiliated with any online certification course or training class.
You are not penalized if you do not successfully pass your certification exam on your first attempt. Your results are available in your account indefinitely for your review, and an exam recap is sent to your email address. Take all the time you need to review the study materials in your account, and compare your responses to the PALS provider handbook. When you’re ready, you may retake the exam at no additional cost.
For your security and peace of mind, all of our courses include a 100% money back guarantee. If you are unhappy with our course for any reason, you can contact us for a full refund of your purchase (minus any shipping and material fees).
