San Antonio FAQs
Where are your San Antonio ACLS locations?
We do not have a physical location because we are a national online ACLS certification and re-certification service. Our courses are accepted in San Antonio, in Texas, throughout the United States and internationally.
How quickly can I earn a NYC PALS card?
Each course includes an instant provider card you can download as soon as you pass the exam, so you can earn your card with our San Antonio PALS certification or recertification course seven days a week, day or night.
When does the San Antonio BLS expire?
Certifications for the BLS last for two years as do the ACLS and PALS. If it has been over two years since you have had your BLS renewed we recommend you order the original BLS certification and not a recertification as guidelines have changed.
