In these busy times, some people prefer taking the first part of their ACLS instruction in the blended learning format offered by the American Heart Association ACLS. These courses are offered for initial or renewal training, and they have the same completion requirements that the classroom ­based equivalent courses do. All the blended learning options include access to the related E-­textbook in the price of the course. Students who successfully complete Part 1 receive a certificate that allows them entrance into a skills practice and testing session.  You must bring your certificate of completion of Part 1 to your skills session in order to receive your certification card. The online component of the course is only the first step in obtaining your ACLS.​
