Basic Life Support training reinforces healthcare professionals' understanding of the importance of early CPR and defibrillation,
basic steps of performing CPR, relieving choking, and using an AED; and the role of each link in the Chain of Survival.
The BLS Instructor-led course teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both pre-hospital
and in-facility environments, with a focus on High-Quality CPR and team dynamics.
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.
During 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.
