After successfully completing the ACLS course through AHA are you assigned a certification number like you do with your RN license or do you just get a basic ID card? Thanks for your help!

Last time I had one it was a course completion card not a certification or license. I know my BLS card from a few weeks ago was marked "course completion" not certification

Although many still refer to it as certification it is just a competency of course completion. It is just like your CPR card.

There is no ID number on my AHA ACLS card.
