ACLS is geared towards healthcare professionals who either direct or participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies or personnel in emergency response.

NAEMT course content is created by teams of nationally and internationally recognized subject matter experts in EMS, emergency medicine and other medical specialties, as well as from the military, public safety and emergency response. Those experts ensure that the latest evidence is included and referenced in each course.
Simulations, skills stations, videos, case studies and group discussions encourage critical thinking and reinforce material presented during lectures. Using a variety of proven learning methodologies ensures students receive a broad scope of knowledge to help with decision-making in the field.
All NAEMT education courses are approved for continuing education credit by the Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE). The number of continuing education credits awarded equals the number of course hours. Courses are also recognized for recertification requirements by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).
Heartsaver First Aid/CPR/AED is geared towards anyone with little or no medical training who needs a course completion card for their job, regulatory (e.g., OSHA), or other requirements or anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a course completion card, valid for two years.
The charts to the left show the success rates of our EMT students who have taken the NREMT certification exam.
The first two images show our 2023 year to date rates both on the first attempt and on subsequent attempts.
The second two images show results from the past three years both on the first attempt and subsequent attempts.
The red columns are the success and failure rate for Second Alarmers students.
The blue columns show the success and failure rate for all students in Pennsylvania.
The grey columns show success and failure for all students across all NREMT programs in the country.
*Please note our current year numbers are a bit misleading as we have not had any students make a second attempt at the test. Our first time pass rate is higher than the state and program wide meaning more of our students pass on their first attempt than from other programs. Because we have not had anyone take a second attempt yet that skews the other data in that chart.
