All medical professionals (including all those employed in a hospital, home health, dental office, students in nursing, EMT’s, etc.) are required to have a current BLS (Basic Life Support) Provider CPR certification. This certification needs to renewed every two (2) years.
The American Heart Association BLS program meets or exceeds all state licensing board and medical agencies recommendations and/or requirements for BLS Healthcare CPR. Also, our program meets all educational BLS for Healthcare CPR requirements for nursing students, EMT schools, or dental students (also for nursing assistant training) who are starting their clinical work at school.
Our classes are certainly informative, but also fun. You will leave the class with confidence in the head knowledge and the skills of CPR in any healthcare-related setting. All BLS classes include adult, child, and infant CPR, use of an AED, and airway obstruction.
Upon completion of the class you will receive a 2-year official BLS certification card through the American Heart Association, the standard in CPR courses for healthcare professionals and students in all medical and dental disciplines. Questions? – please call us (678) 796-8277.
