Basic Life Support (BLS) is designed for healthcare professionals who need to learn how to perform CPR for a job or regulatory requirements. This includes nurses, physicians, EMS personnel, healthcare students, physical therapist, occupational therapist, athletic trainers, and other health professionals.
Students will be instructed and practice basic CPR skills, AED use, and other methods to keep patients alive until they can be brought to a hospital or treated with more advanced lifesaving measures.
This course is available in traditional and blended class formats.
Traditional courses are video-based classes led by certified instructors in a classroom setting. Blended classes use online programs and skill sessions for those who prefer a non-classroom method of learning. (Click here to learn more about these options.)
