The New 2020 American Heart Association courses are taught in a very different manner than in the past. They are closer to the Virtual class format than the traditional class format.

The videos have been improved to provide great detail and help students learn in a much more comfortable environment (your home).

We at GoACLS are proud to be one of the first to offer the 2020 format. Since it is very different from the previous ways of learning, we will explain the format and help you excel in these courses.


The BLS courses haven’t changed in format. You must still come to class and learn BLS while watching videos and practicing on manikins. The BLS course is designed to teach you about BLS, but most of the course is hands-on training.


The ACLS course has changed for the better. You can now watch the classroom videos online. You don’t even have to register for the class prior to using the videos. This is a magnificent change, even those not yet up for renewal can update by watching the videos and gain the new information prior to a renewal class.

  • For Initial & Renewal students:
    • You can do the Pre-Course Work (videos) and practice with the Pre-Course Assessment (ECG Interpretation ACLS Drugs & Practical Application) before even signing up for the course.
    • We have supplied the links here to make it easy for you to start your training and education.
  1. Follow this link: elearning.heart.org/courses.
  2. Note: If you have not already logged in, the system will ask you to do so. If you have not visited the site before, you’ll be prompted to set up an account (It’s Free).
  3. Choose the ACLS Precourse Self-Assessment and Precourse Work
  4. You must complete the ACLS Precourse Assessment & the ACLS Precourse Work.
  5. On completion, print the Completion Certificate and bring it with you to class.

At the end of class, we will email you a link to the Final Exam. You can now take the exam at home, the same as the online portion, on the American Heart Association website. We do suggest reviewing the material and videos again before taking the exam.

Upon completing the exam, you will be issued a certificate from the American Heart Association, which will be emailed to us. At that point, we will issue an eCard by email to be claimed as usual on the American Heart website.

You can send certificates to: [email protected]

Since the time in class will be shorter, we have lowered our pricing to reflect better the time involved in your classroom training.

These must be completed before class. Otherwise, you will not be able to participate in the class.  If you have questions, call us: 718-441-0656

We hope this makes certification an easier and better, more conducive learning experience.
