    My BLS cert will expire the end of this month. I need to renew it. Does anyone know of any good/legit online BLS renewal course?

    There have been recent discussions about this exact topic. Click on the "tag" for CPR below your post and you can find a couple.

    My advice is to check with your facility/agency and make sure they accept online recerts. My facility will not accept online as there is often no return demonstration/hands on portion of the course.

    I believe the American Heart Association has online courses. However, you must go to a facility after you've taken the course to demonstrate your skills to an instructor in order to pass.

    Took ACLS, and PALS online through "aclsonline.us/." Had to provide the name of someone who would verify my skills. All well and good until my employer tried to verify my credentials with the company. Couldn't get a reply by mail, phone, or email. Left me out in the cold for the cost of the courses.

    No "legit" agencies provide 100% online - you still have to go in person for a skills checkoff.

    I did mine with AHA. Then I went at the beginning of a BLS class and did the exam on the dummies. it took all of 10min!

    I know this thread has come back from the dead, but I'll add to it anyway. I've done my BLS and ACLS renewals online through AHA. After completing the coursework, I printed my certificate and went to my local testing center to demonstrate the hands-on skills. Easy, fast...and because it was through the AHA, I have no problem with getting my cards or having my credentials verified.

    Keep in mind that most hospitals and employers specifically require AHA courses.
