BLS Certification Programs
Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers is designed to train healthcare professionals to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner. Successful completion of the course grants the participant an American Heart Association Basic Life Support Certification Card, which is valid for two years.
Basic Life Support (BLS) - American Heart Association®
Instructor-Led Classes: Initial $99.99; Recertification $79.99
Three Ways to Earn American Heart Association® BLS Certification
BLS certification can be earned in 3 formats to meet the needs of students. All formats include the same learning objectives and result in the same American Heart Association® course completion card and certification.
Traditional Classroom BLS Courses
In Instructor-Led BLS Courses Instructors deliver both the cognitive portion of training and the psychomotor skills practice and testing in a classroom setting. Everything is completed in one class with this format. Students do not need to complete an online course prior to attending Instructor-led courses.
Blended-Learning Online BLS Courses
Blended Learning "HeartCode® BLS" includes a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes the cognitive portion of the course online in a self-directed manner, and then completes a shortened in person hands-on skills and testing session at our Education Center.
Update and Recertification BLS Courses
BLS Accelerated Recertification courses are for providers who have been previously certified in BLS. The Accelerated course meets the same educational objectives as all of our BLS programs, but is shorter and very fast paced.
