Where is your Tulsa PALS class located?
Currently we are not offering local classes. Our service has been 100% online for several years. You won’t be required to schedule a class on the weekend or at night. You can recertify your PALS from the convenience of your home at any time.
My current Tulsa BLS expired about a month ago, can I recertify it online?
Yes, you can. Simply place the order for a BLS recertification. We don’t require seeing your expired certification card. If you are already expired, you should begin the recertification immediately.
If you prefer sit-down, in-person training for ACLS, we have you covered.

Tulsa has been a city since sometime in the 1800s and has a very rich history of trials. It was once a primary aspect in the American oil industry, but has since turned its economic struggles in other directions. It is located in the area of the United States known as “tornado alley” and has suffered severe damages due to enormous tornadoes in the past.
While much of the city is flat land, there are some mountains and hills located in certain areas as well. These areas provide state parks and outdoor adventure for locals as well as tourists. The city has invested considerable amounts of funding into developing shopping and other amusements along the hillsides of the city.
This city also has a large presence in the world of auto and stock car racing. The Tulsa Speedway is regularly used for auto races while the Tulsa Raceway is used for stock car racing.
Yet, most people who visit Tulsa, Oklahoma end up catching a show or concert at one of the entertainment venues. Some of the more popular locations for these events include the Brady Theater and the Tulsa Convention Center. The Tulsa Opera and Tulsa Ballet are also popular features with some visitors.
