Important Note About Education Courses

Due to the COVID-19 Outbreak, all ACLS, PALS and PHTLS Provider and Recertification courses offered by OSF NREMS have been postponed until further notice. 

For ACLS, PALS and CPR Certifications, “The American Heart Association recommends that employers and regulatory bodies consider extending recognition of an AHA Provider Card beyond its renewal date, for up to 60 days.  However, please know that it is ultimately up to the discretion of employers and regulatory bodies who require current AHA Provider Cards to consider allowing extensions during this time.”
