CPR Courses

This course, “BLS for Healthcare Providers,” is designed for healthcare professionals who must have a credential (a card) documenting successful completion of a course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and Basic Life Support (BLS). Such credentials are typically required for people who provide healthcare to patients in a wide variety of settings.

Course participants will learn how to recognize and respond to life-threatening emergencies such as cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, and foreign-body airway obstruction (choking).
