Registration Information

CPR

Renewal: Courses operate on a drop-in basis. Due to very high volumes in the CPR Renewal classes, arrive no later than the time specified on the schedule in order to complete your certification, which can take up to two hours. What you need to bring:

  • Employee Badge
  • Employee ID number

Initial: This course will be provided at no cost one time per person, per certification term (two years). Failure to attend a scheduled class (without 24 hour notification of cancellation) will result in a charge for the next class attended. Prices vary.

Please register online with Newcastle Training. For inquiries or issues with registration please contact the Newcastle operator at 425-488-3730 (M-F 9am - 5pm).

MHS pays for employees to attend one CPR every two year period for employees whose job requires it. If the employee does not properly cancel and is recorded as a no show, the employee will be required to pay for subsequent classes within that same two year period

CPR books and other course material will be made available through the Wagner Library 30 days prior to the class.

ACLS Online - HeartCode

MultiCare also offers the ACLS HeartCode Online certification course. This is an interactive, self-paced computer module designed for the completion of the ACLS course. It takes approximately four to six hours to complete, and will bookmark your progress so that you can continue where you left off. Offered at both Tacoma General and Allenmore campus in the Wagner Libraries, you can take it 24-hours a day.

Contact the ILD office at 253-403-1280 to register and be ready to provide the following information:

  • Spelling of first and last name
  • Employee number
  • Position

Important:

MHS will only pay for one ACLS class per certification term (every two years). If you are registered for the instructor led ACLS class through Newcastle Training, you will need to cancel your registration before signing up for HeartCode. Otherwise, you will be responsible for the $150.00 cost of HeartCode ACLS.
