What does the online Oakland ACLS exam look like?
The test contains questions written in either multiple choice or true/false format. Radio buttons are listed next to each possible answer. Fill out the answers to the ACLS questions, review, and then click a button to submit your answers.
Is there a temporary Oakland PALS card?
We do provide two cards but either can be permanent. The service is designed so that you’ll receive an instant provider card you can download as soon as you pass the exam, plus a hard copy card in a professional card stock in 3-5 business days.
Do you email my employer when I pass the Oakland BLS?
No, we do not contact employers for you once you complete a certification. Once you have a certification card from Pacific Medical Training simply show it to the appropriate person at your place of work.
If you prefer sit-down, in-person training for ACLS, we have you covered.

In 1852, Oakland was officially declared a city in its own right. Located on the eastern U.S. shore it is a well known seaport city with a prime location that is easy to spot. It happens to be situated right on the San Francisco Bay, directly across from the Golden Gate Bridge.
The weather in this city is much like other coastal cities in the state. The summer months are hot and dry while the winter months deliver a lot of rainfall and colder temperatures. Still, it is a beautiful and serene setting for visitors and residents to enjoy all year round.
What the sunny shore cities of California are most known for besides miles and miles of sandy beaches is that the nightlife for adults is alive and thriving. With the popular Jack London Square, the nightlife is at its best in Oakland. Here visitors will find live music playing every night along streets lined with a large variety of shops, restaurants, and even one of the most famous old time saloons.
Chinatown is another popular destination as it allows visitors to tour through street after street lined with small shops and markets complimented well by the Asian foods available at every turn. This is a paradise for those who enjoy learning about different cultures or shopping for more unusual goods.
Yet, there are some rather unusual features that can be enjoyed on the waterfront as well. For instance, many couples enjoy romantic moments across the water on gondolas.
