CERTIFICATIONS – DUE May 11, 2018

(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. All Pediatric residents must be PALS & NRP certified.  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 11th 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!

AHA approved online courses are available for purchase at www.onlineaha.org.  This option requires a separate skills session with an American Heart Association instructor and has an additional cost.

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).
