Life Support Classes
We offer six life support classes tailored to students and health care professionals, plus hybrid learning courses and instructor training.
Basic Life Support (BLS)
The AHA’s BLS courses reinforce healthcare professionals’ understanding of the importance of early CPR and defibrillation, performing basic steps of CPR, relieving choking, using an AED, and the role of each link in the Chain of Survival.
In this classroom-based course, 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.
