CERTIFICATIONS – DUE May 12, 2017
(THIS IS A PRE-EMPLOYMENT REQUIREMENT)
All incoming housestaff are required to take American Heart Association (AHA) approved BLS & ACLS courses at their own expense and maintain certification throughout their training. In addition to BLS & ACLS certifications, all Pediatric residents must also be PALS & NRP certified at their own expense. Programs that require additional life support certification(s) will directly notify their housestaff.
You must email/mail me front and back copies of all your certification cards by the May 12th deadline. Online courses are acceptable, however we will only accept certifications from authorized American Heart Association training centers, so please be careful when selecting your courses. Non-receipt of these certifications will delay your start date!
Please be sure to specifically ask the training center if the card issued upon completion of the course will have an official AHA logo on it (see samples below), because we will not accept certification cards that do not have an AHA logo.
To ensure that it’s an AHA approved course, you will need to specifically ask the training center if the card issued upon completion of the course will have an official AHA logo on it (see samples below).
