We will begin sending new editions on February 16, 2016. If you are conducting trainings before that date, please continue to use 2010 editions of the BLS for Healthcare Providers and BLS for Prehospital Providers course materials.
Basic Life Support (BLS) is the foundation for saving lives after cardiac arrest. This video-based, Instructor-led course teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both in-facility and prehospital settings. This course is designed for healthcare professionals and other personnel who need to know how to perform CPR and other basic cardiovascular life support skills.
In addition, BLS training can be appropriate for first responders, such as police officers and firefighters, as well as for laypeople whose work brings them into contact with members of the public, such as school, fitness center, or hotel and restaurant employees.
Students must pass a written exam and skills test in order to qualify for a BLS Course
Course length for the classroom-based course is approximately 4 hours.
