AHA Basic Life Support (BLS)

100% classroom training means students are with an AHA Instructor for their entire learning experience.

The BLS Course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED.

In the Instructor-led course, students participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. Students work with an AHA BLS Instructor to complete BLS skills practice and skills testing. Students also complete a written exam.

Full BLS Provider Course takes approximately 4.5 hours to complete, including skills practice and skills testing

BLS Renewal Course takes approximately 3 hours to complete, including skills practice and testing
