Do I need Adobe Reader to view my instant Jacksonville ACLS card?
Yes, you will need to have Adobe Reader installed to view and print your instant provider card. You can download Adobe Reader for free from www.adobe.com.
What should I do with my old PALS certification?
After your current Jacksonville PALS expires it is no longer valid. You can keep it if you like but most people just throw them away so they aren’t confused with the active certifications. Each certification card is good for 2 years from the day you pass the exam.
Is your Jacksonville BLS course time consuming?
The time you invest in it will depend on your current familiarity with the BLS material. When you take the exam we recommend you reserve at least 30 minutes of your time. You can spend as much time getting ready for the exam as you need until you feel comfortable with the material.

Founded in 1791, Jacksonville is located in one of the sunniest regions of the United States. A popular destination for retirees and spring break kids alike, it maintains a very diverse and interesting local culture. While most people think of beaches and sun-drenched sand when they think of Florida, there is much more to this fun city than just relaxing by the ocean.
This city is a haven for those who enjoy being on the great outdoors and watching natural wildlife. There are a variety of state parks where visitors can enjoy hiking, walking along nature trails, or relaxing by the lake. There are also a lot of bird sanctuaries, gardens, and art museums located all throughout the city. Golf courses are also largely abundant.
Of course, no trip to Jacksonville would be complete without a stroll across the beach. Jacksonville Beach is one of the more popular yet not so crowded options for people who want to enjoy beautiful scenery and sand between the toes without dodging a torrent of other visitors. Another less crowded option is Atlantic Beach.
As a coastal city, most of the attractions in Jacksonville tend to be focused on the outdoors. From the local wildlife to the alluring oceans, visitors can enjoy everything from casual strolls through the woods to bird watching and surfing adventures on the open waves. Accommodations in this city are top notch, including many oceanfront hotels and resorts.
