Just make sure you are BLS and ACLS certified from AHA in the U.S.

Many countries have BLS and ACLS courses that are done in partnership with the AHA.
e.g. I have BLS and ACLS from Ireland; however, I didn't include them on my application. I called ERAS some time ago and they said unless they were done in the U.S., they were not to be included.

It does not affect your application, all programs provide training to get certificated anyway.
