Is there an in-person skills test required to receive my certification?
You do not have to complete an in-person skills test to complete any of our continuing education courses. When the team of leading medical educators at ACLS Medical Training were creating our curriculum, they decided requiring a hands-on skills test on a mannequin every two years doesn’t add value to a continuing education course for experienced medical professionals. These tactile experiences cannot be fully duplicated or mimicked in a skills test – they can only be truly learned through real life clinical training. Therefore, we do not require a “hands-on” skills test for our continuing education courses. Instead, you must demonstrate that you have mastered the didactic material by passing the certification exam.
