Pay Once. Certify Forever.

We understand the demanding CME requirements of health care providers. The money and hours required add up over time. That’s why we offer “For Life” Certifications. Purchase a For Life Course from us once, and you will never have to pay for that certification again, ever.

We make it easy.

We make it easy for your busy schedule. Once you pass your exam, you’ll instantly receive your digital card. As you approach your two year mark, we’ll remind you via email and you can log back in, complete the updated exam, and get your updated digital card. Then repeat, every two years, forever, for no additional cost.

Is there a difference between online training and classroom-based instruction?

The key distinction between online certification training and in-person classroom training is time and flexibility. Save a Life recognizes the demanding schedules and responsibilities that medical professionals handle on a daily basis. Our online courses offer the same level of high-quality education as traditional classroom courses, but with the added convenience of being able to learn on your own schedule, and from the comfort of your own home. Our curriculum is designed to adhere to the ILCOR’s latest standards and guidelines, and covers the same material as in-person courses. Our online courses eliminate the need for commuting, allowing you to plan your study time around other obligations, and can easily accommodate last-minute certification needs.

Is your organization accredited by AHA?

This is a common misconception. The AHA is not an accrediting body. We are accredited by the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM). All courses are designed by practicing physicians, meeting the same guidelines and standards as the latest ILCOR guidelines.

Will I earn the certification through this online course?

Upon successful completion of your exam(s), you will receive an instant digital certificate. For ACLS, PALS, and BLS you will be provided with a link and instructions to CME University’s website where you can download your CME Certificate. If you choose to receive a printed card, you will be mailed a hard copy certification card that you should receive in the mail within 5-7 business days. All certification cards are endorsed by Save a Life Certifications by NHCPS. All of our courses are designed by Board Certified Physicians and adhere to the latest ILCOR Standards and Guidelines and are Joint Commission (JCAHO) compliant. We successfully certify hundreds of health care professionals like yourself every day.

Are your certifications accepted nationally?

Yes. We have certified hundreds of thousands of people whose employers have been very satisfied with our high standard of education. We are proud to say that we have over a 98% acceptance rate nationally and internationally. If you are still unsure, we suggest you consult your employer.
