ACLS Recertification Online - Really?
It doesn't happen often, as my friends will tell you, but I find myself without an opinion on something. I'll give you a minute to absorb that...
Now that I am no longer affiliated with an institution since retirement, I've realized that I will actually have to PAY for any classes I want to take. For example, if I want to continue my cruise job, I will need to re-certify my ACLS before the end of May. To do that, I will need to actually find someone and pay them to re-certify me. I've never paid for a class like that before. The boss has always covered it from the budget.
I have heard that there are actually online classes, so I started a search, and found several ranging in price from $129 to $179. The trouble is, I really have no idea if it's worth it or not.
What exactly will I be getting from an online ACLS class? Am I just paying for a bootleg card? Does the AHA recognize this type of re-cert? And more importantly, will my cruise line?
Obviously I still need to do some more research, and when I decide, I'll let you know how it all worked out. But in the meantime, I am open to suggestions. Anyone?
