What is a BLS Certification

Basic Life Support

BLS Certification is available from the American Heart Association. It is almost identical to a CPR class but is geared towards healthcare providers. This course takes the traditional CPR course and goes more in-depth:

  • AED Instruction
  • Realistic scenarios, simulations, and animations depicting rescuers, teams and patients
  • CPR when administered as a team, which is touched on in basic CPR but requires more emphasis for healthcare professionals¬†
Focusing on team rescue situations and spending time discussing the importance of teams in scenarios where multi-rescuer resuscitation is a possibility. Showing participants how to be highly effective.
