Basic Life Support Certification

Date: 

Saturday, October 16, 2021

Description: 

Basic Life Support (BLS) is an American Heart Association certification that focuses on what rescuers need to know to perform basic life support skills. After successfully completing this BLS Instructor-Led Training course, you should be able to perform high quality CPR and describe the technique for choking relief for an adult, child, or infant, as well as demonstrate the appropriate use of automated external defibrillator (AED) and barrier device skills. You will also be able to describe the importance of teams in multi-rescuer resuscitation. BLS is designed for healthcare in both pre-hospital and in-facility environments. In-facility refers to healthcare providers who work in a hospital, clinic, or other healthcare facility including a dentist office, skilled nursing, and assisted-living facilities. Cost of the course includes training and the use of the BLS provider manual. Our facilities and procedures support social distancing and upgraded sanitization practices recommended by the CDC for COVID-19 control and prevention. Students will be required to bring and wear a mask and gloves during the course. These items will not be provided.
