Answer:

The process to renew a Basic Life Support (BLS) and an Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) certification depends on the organization that you get them from. These certifications are often valid for two or three years. Most certification agencies offer the possibility to get a renewal. Some of them require certification holders to complete a certain amount of Continuing Education (CE) credits to get a certification renewal. CE credits involve completing activities that ensure professional growth to certification holders. These may be attending events, reading books, videoconferences, webinars, college courses, etc. On the other hand, some certification agencies require certification holders to complete a recertification course. These courses refresh their knowledge and skills in this type of emergency procedures. Recertification courses are often offered online and can have a hands-on training session. In conclusion, renewing your BLS and ACLS certification depends on your certification agency and its specific requirements.
