BLS for Healthcare Providers

This course is designed to provide a wide variety of healthcare professionals the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a wide variety of in-hospital and out-of-hospital settings.

This class consists of two parts.
Part 1 is ONLINE. You must complete the online portion prior to scheduled skill assessment.

Together both parts cover breathing and cardiac emergencies - including CPR, AED, and obstructed airway - for adult, child, and infant patients.
