CPR, BLS, ACLS, PALS & First Aid

We offer a range of the American Heart Association's life support courses for health professionals and others whose job or personal commitments require certification in these life-saving cardiac arrest management and first aid techniques. Because the UCLA Center for Prehospital Care is a leading EMS research center as well as a training center, your education here will always be state of the art.

July 28 update: The American Heart Association has provided a 120-day grace period for cards expiring in areas affected by pandemic restrictions. For example, if your card expired in March, you are eligible to renew it via the standard recertification course through the end of July. For cards expiring in July, you may renew via recertification course through October, though we encourage you to renew sooner.

If your organization requires BLS, ACLS, or PALS training for your staff, please contact Jenny Chang, our Community Training Center director, at 310-267-5959 to find out if we can design a custom training program to meet your needs.
