BLS, CPR and First Aid

Basic Life Support (BLS)

Healthcare professionals learn to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR to victims of all ages, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.

BLS Course Options:

Self-paced Online Learning – HeartCode® BLS

This course uses a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulators, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities to teach students BLS knowledge and skills.

After completing the online course, students will be scheduled to practice and test their skills with one of our instructors and upon successful completion of the skills test students receive a course completion card.

Traditional Classroom Learning

The BLS instructor-led course teaches both single rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both pre-hospital and in-facility environments, with a focus on high quality CPR and team dynamics.

* The American Heart Association requires you to have a current copy of the student manual for these courses. If you already own one or have access to one before, during, and after the class, you do not need to purchase one. Student manuals may be picked up by appointment. Books that are not picked up in advance will be delivered in class.

Heartsaver® CPR AED

Heartsaver® CPR AED teaches adult and child CPR and AED use, infant CPR, and how to relieve choking in adults, children, and infants.  Courses are for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs a course completion card for job, regulatory or other requirements. This course is also designed to meet OSHA requirements.

Participants receive a course completion card that is valid for two years.

Heartsaver® First Aid

Heartsaver® First Aid teaches students critical skills to respond to and manage an emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services arrives.

Family & Friends® CPR

The Family & Friends CPR Course teaches the lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only CPR, adult CPR with breaths, child CPR with breaths, adult and child AED use, infant CPR, and mild and severe airway block for adults, children, and infants. Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment using the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.

Family & Friends CPR is for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a CPR course completion card to meet a job requirement. This course is ideal for community groups, new parents, grandparents, babysitters, and others interested in learning how to save a life.

Hands Only CPR

Hands Only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths.  If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of any tune that is 100 to 120 beats per minute. Immediate CPR can double or even triple a person’s chance of survival.
