Our mission is to provide information and products to help the modern day healthcare provider adapt to these changes without sacrificing quality of care.

eMedCert has served healthcare providers worldwide by procuring and sharing original content focused on career development in the rapidly evolving health care industry. Now, in addition to sharing valuable advice, eMedCert will provide online certification and recertification training courses in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and Basic Life Support (BLS) through a completely redesigned website.
"Advancements made over the past few years in health care and technology, coupled with the rapid pace healthcare providers must maintain on a daily basis led us to recognize the necessity for alternatives to traditional methods for meeting certification and recertification requirements in life support and resuscitation training," Wilson Rapp, eMedCert Co-Founder, said. "Our mission is to provide information and products to help the modern day healthcare provider adapt to these changes without sacrificing quality of care." Healthcare providers and medical staff, depending on their role, must meet requirements in life support and resuscitation training set forth by their employer and its regulating bodies. ACLS, PALS and BLS are the three most common certifications. eMedCert offers online versions of these courses through their website. The courses are based on and reconciled with the latest American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines, released in 2010. All course and exam materials are edited and maintained by licensed medical doctors from an array of related specialties and professional backgrounds.
eMedCert’s online ACLS, PALS, and BLS Certification and Recertification courses are structured to allow healthcare providers to move through the course(s) and take exam(s) at their own pace. Those certifying for the first time must complete every section of the course before beginning their online exam, whereas experienced providers completing a recertification course may review any necessary materials and begin their online exam at any time. "The traditional training method involves scheduling an 8 - 12 hour block of time in order to register for a course at a time and location in which a course is available for live instruction. This is not an ideal situation for anyone and is frustrating for healthcare providers who just need a refresher," Adam Rapp, eMedCert Co-Founder, said.
Upon passing the online course exam, a card is issued to providers who obtain a valid certification as evidence of their competence as a medical staff member in compliance with industry regulations. "After asking questions and listening to industry professionals, we discovered that healthcare providers simply hand this card to their employer and forget about the card for two years, at which point they must repeat the entire process," Jon Becker, eMedCert Co-Founder, said. "This is puzzling, why the card? While eMedCert will initially issue provider cards in both digital and print versions, an overarching company goal is to make them a thing of the past."
Healthcare providers interested in learning more about eMedCert's online ACLS, PALS, and BLS certification and recertification training courses can visit the eMedCert website. Solutions are also available for groups, and for larger health care organizations interested in certification solutions for their medical staff.
