The American Heart Association (AHA) Basic Life Support (BLS) Healthcare Provider Course is designed to provide a wide variety of healthcare professionals with the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an automated external defibrillator (AED), and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner. The course may be utilized by certified or non-certified, licensed or non-licensed healthcare professionals. While the images and videos in this course will show a healthcare setting, the skills are applicable to the general public as well.
Our AHA training center currently offers the HeartCode Blended BLS model for certification completion. Students will be required to complete an online course first and then complete a skills assessment. There are two options for completing the skills assessment.
Please note: Once you make your course selection, you are unable to switch. For example, if you select option 1, "Basic Life Support (BLS) & Voice-Assisted Manikin (VAM)," you must complete your skills with the voice-assisted manikins. If you select option 2, "BLS online & Instructor Led Skills Assessment," you must complete your skills with an instructor. If you select option 2, there will be no VAM access. Please take a moment to select your desired skills assessment method.
