BLS INITIAL CERTIFICATION

What's included and is this course for me?

Available from Always Safe & Healthy, an American Heart Association Training site, the BLS certification is ultimately geared toward healthcare providers.  The course takes the traditional CPR course and goes into a consistently disciplined and practiced depth of training for things like:
  • Medical and pre-hosptial environments
  • Review of typical scenarios and simulations involving all levels of rescuers, teams, and patients
  • CPR administered as a team and the roles of the team leader and team members
  • AED instruction and practice as a healthcare provider (lay responders receive basic instruction)
  • CPR performed with oxygen masks.

BLS Course Completions Cards have a 2 year validation period that expires at the end of the anniversary month.
