Frequently Asked Questions

What precautions are you taking with COVID-19?

Keeping everyone as safe as possible is our #1 concern. We are constantly disinfecting our facility throughout the class. This means doorknobs, coffee and water machines, mannikins, faucets, pens, pencils, tables, chairs, and other objects we may touch are disinfected before, during, and after classes.

If you have taken class with us in the past, you will also notice our seating arrangement is a little different. This means we can only allow a limited number of participants inside the building at all times. 

Since all our clients work in healthcare, masks must be worn at all times during class unless eating or drinking. While all our pens and pencils are sanitized, we encourage you to bring your own. We have several sanitizer stations available to keep everyone clean.

How can I prepare for the ACLS, BLS, or PALS class?

For ACLS, click here; for PALS, click here and for BLS please contact us to obtain preparation materials.  These are practice tests that can be taken as many times as needed and are not recorded in any way. The expected time to complete the assessment is 60 minutes and can be saved to be completed later. There are 20 questions per section and there are 3 sections total. Please bring a copy/picture/screenshot of the results with you to class.

Do you offer CEUs?

No, unfortunately, we do not offer any CEUs for our classes, but our instructors have used NetCE to complete all of their CEU requirements for a nominal fee.

What should I bring to class?

  1. Bring the required ECC or Provider book for class. The current editions for ACLS, BLS, and PALS are 2020. 

  2. Current ACLS, PALS, BLS card if attending recertification classes. If taken with us, it is not necessary.

  3. Pen or pencil. Believe it or not, people forget them all the time. Also, scratch paper or a notebook.

  4. Snacks, drinks, or dietary essentials to keep you cozy. We provide water, Stash/Bigelow tea, various snacks, and Keurig coffee K-cups.

  5. A sweater or jacket since we run the AC throughout the class.

  6. Cash, Check, Venmo. We do not accept credit or debit cards.

  7. Masks! If you do not wear a facial covering, you will not be allowed into the and class. A shield is not sufficient. Your mouth and nose needed to be covered at all times unless eating or drinking.

Why are you more expensive than other places?

The short answer is: you get what you pay for. We provide a stress-less learning experience to our students thanks to our instructor's decades of experience teaching ACLS, BLS, and PALS. The long answer:  Inflation increases at an annual rate of about ~2 percent. In 2011, we needed to increase prices ($160 ACLS/PALS and $60 for BLS) to adjust for the expected inflation in the coming years. 2020 was not a good year for anyone, especially small businesses. Being family-owned and operated, our prices have not changed for almost a decade. We decided to purchase more amenities to make your experience with us more enjoyable. New chairs, a Keurig coffee machine with gourmet coffee, Stash/Bigelow tea, a wide variety of snacks, Bath & Body brand soap in the bathrooms, new mannikins, AEDs, and the current cost of cleaning materials justify our above-average prices. Our primary instructor, Lea Dee, teaches the ACLS, BLS, and PALS disciplines and has been a Registered Nurse for over 40 years. Her son, Matthew, manages the day-to-day business operations. Lea and Matthew have MBAs from UC Irvine and UC Riverside respectively. We want to ensure that our old and new clients are treated with the highest level of customer service. We also feel that our experience of over 40 years in the healthcare and continuing education industry allow you to have a stress-less and positive learning experience. We do offer a group rate for classes of 5 or more participants.

Are the Provider Manuals/textbooks required for the class?

Yes, the books/manuals are required for all classes as per AHA guidelines. You must have your own book or e-book before, during, and after a class.  The current edition is the 2020 ACLS/BLS/PALS Provider Manual. If you need help obtaining a book, please let us know.
