Our courses

Our course roster

All our courses are written in house by our team of writers, technical editors, copy editors, and publication team which are experts in their respective fields. Where appropriate, our materials do reference the canonical scientific literature for that topic; for example, our ACLS course cites the American Heart Association circulation articles. If you're seeking an "American Heart Association ACLS renewal online," you'll find that our courses are always based on the latest revision of the available science as we make frequent updates. Although the scientific publications are released every 5 years for ACLS/PALS/BLS and slower for other topics, we do update our course material through a review process that solicits customer feedback to strive for the best training materials possible. Education is a competitive market and we work hard to make the best products and experiences possible.
