I am very thankful for this course. I was able to recertify on my own time and still meet a necessary deadline. I learned a lot that I had forgotten from when I had received the training on site!

I thought ACLS, PALS, BLS should be taken with skills test but I was wrong. These How To Save a Life courses have the complete materials I needed to learn. The instructions are very easy to follow and I had ample time to practice my skills in my home. I completed the courses at my own time frame.

I took the whole series of Save A Life courses and this was the hardest. I liked how they are all self-paced, so I didn't have to wait a whole week for the material like with other institutions. Thanks Dr. Disque :)
