What others have to say

The certification program is on course. The study guide was well done. I believe building confidence in that Level 1 operator through a certification program is the most important objective of AALSO. That Level 1 operator is the future AALSO.

AALSO membership and certification are two criteria I take into account when hiring new life support operators. I want all of the operators at our institution to become certified.

The certification program is great! I personally place a lot of value on this program, and hope to see it continue and expand.
