RECOVER BLS and ALS Online Courses Free to Students

Because the COVID-19 pandemic has caused the cessation of classes at many educational institutions nationwide, veterinary and veterinary technology/nursing students are without the ability to attend classes, do rotations, or site visits.

RECOVER, VECCS, ACVECC, and Cornell have joined with a number of other amazing veterinary organizations to do what we can to help during these unprecedented times.

RECOVER is offering free BLS and ALS courses to students of accredited veterinary and veterinary technology/nursing programs worldwide. If you are interested in participating in the program, please have an administrator of your program fill out the following form to request access to the courses.

More information on this course can be found here.

This is a limited time offer which will be concluded once we reach our capacity to provide the online courses at no cost. We will try to accommodate as many requests as possible.

Please be patient with us as we work diligently to provide you with course access as quickly as we can. Turn around time for course access from submission is normally 24-72 hours but may be extended depending upon demand.

Thank you for your continued investment in the best of patient care.

How to Take Part

Criteria for Qualification

Access to courses are offered to veterinary students and veterinary technology and nursing program students enrolled at academic institutions accredited by the country’s official accrediting body. 

For the United States, AVMA accredited programs will be accepted. For countries outside of the United States, we will require some help by being provided information on the official accrediting body. Thank you for you understanding. 

 

Please Follow these steps to request access to the Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS) for your Students

1. Fill out the request form

You will be asked for information on your institution, where we can confirm your institution’s accreditation status, designated contact person to serve as the group leader who can track completion status (if desired), and a list of names and email address of individuals to be enrolled.

2. Wait for the RECOVER Admin Team to contact you with information on access.

Please be patient with us as we work diligently to provide you with course access as quickly as we can. Turn around time for course access from submission is normally 24-72 hours but may be extended depending upon demand.

3. Have your students enjoy the online course content.

The courses will be accessible for 2 years from the date of enrollment. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can our faculty/interns/residents/staff also receive this offer?

A. The course access is currently limited to students only. Anyone else who would like to register for the courses can do so with the coupon code washyourhands to receive a 30% discount.

Within 24 hours of opening this offer up, we have received requests from 112 institutions and are providing free courses to over 9000 individuals. Apologies for not being able to make it free for everyone!

Q. While my hospital administration is working towards submitting a request, may I get access if I show proof I am a student?

A. The ideal situation would be that we can process all of the students at once through the academic institution’s request. We really would love to give you and others that are so enthusiastic access sooner, though that increases the processing time and we are trying to get through requests from now 112 institutions with over 9000 students, with the number growing each minute. We suggest that you nudge the administration to act on it sooner, and also let them know that the request can come from a faculty member that is delegated this task from the administrators. Hopefully that helps!
