Health Education Solutions' Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support Courses Receive Accreditation

Courses allow EMS professionals to earn continuing education credits online

Lincoln, Neb. (Vocus) September 21, 2009 -- The online Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and the Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) courses offered by Health Education Solutions (HES) recently received accreditation from the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS), the national accrediting body for EMS continuing education courses and course providers.

This accreditation allows emergency medical professionals to receive eight continuing education units upon completion of the ACLS provider course, and earn four continuing education units for taking the recertification course. Individuals taking our PALS courses may receive three continuing education units for the certification course and two credits for the recertification course from CECBEMS.

The interactive online courses with certification and recertification exams are designed to prepare healthcare professionals for successfully achieving ACLS and PALS certifications. All critical care medical professionals who initiate and direct advanced life support in medical emergencies, including doctors, physician assistants, nurses, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, family physicians, and respiratory therapists, are required to be certified in ACLS and PALS standards every two years.

"The new CECBMS accreditation of our ACLS and PALS courses will help medical professionals fulfill part of their professional development requirements," said David King, president of Health Education Solutions. "By taking our courses, healthcare providers can now earn continuing education units through an accredited online curriculum that also makes it easy and convenient to study and receive their ACLS and PALS certifications."

Both the ACLS and PALS courses were developed in partnership with medical faculty at Union College, a top-tier school in Lincoln, Nebraska, with a legacy of excellence in health care education, based on guidelines provided by the American Heart Association.

The ACLS certification course improves the skills healthcare providers use to treat adults in cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies. The goal of the PALS certification course is to assist healthcare providers who work with infants and children in developing and increasing their knowledge and skills necessary to successfully manage patients in cardiopulmonary emergencies.
