Resuscitation Training Course Updates

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, resuscitation renewal courses were suspended and the VUMC CPR Policy was updated to issue a 120-day extension to certfications expiring in March, April, May, and June 2020. Resuscitation Training and Development is implementing the following changes to allow for recertification of extended cards and the resumption of our regular course schedule.

♦ For BLS, ACLS, and PALS certifications that were extended, we are utilizing a blended learning program, HeartCode Complete, to facilitate renewal of these certifications.
