This course reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).

What is BLS training?

Basic Life Support, or BLS, refers to emergency cardiovascular care that first responders, healthcare professionals and public safety personnel provide to someone who is experiencing cardiac arrest, respiratory distress or choking.

Who is required to have BLS training?

Most medical providers including doctors, nurses, medical assistants, dental professionals, firefighters and police officers are usually required to obtain BLS training and certification.

Can BLS Certification be obtained on-line?
BLS training can be obtained on-line but be careful!   ALWAYS check with your employer to see if they accept the on-line certification that you are researching. We always recommend in-person instruction for maximum learning opportunity.

Since we are American Heart Association Instructors, we offer a blended learning opportunity according to the AHA guidelines.  The class can be taken at and we can provide the required in-person skills testing portion of the class and issue your BLS Course Completion Card to present to your employer or representing board.

What is Heartcode® BLS?
HeartCode® BLS is the online portion of BLS blended learning that prepares students for hands-on practice and testing of skills.

After completing the eLearning component, students perform their skills with an AHA Instructor. Students must successfully complete both the cognitive portion and the in-person skills session to receive an American Heart Association BLS eCard, valid for two years.
Do I need to complete the online portion of the course before I take the hands-on skills session?
Yes. You must take the entire course and print out the Certificate of Completion. You can email it to your AHA Instructor or bring the certificate with you to the in-person skills test and give it to the Instructor.
Is obtaining the BLS Provider Manual required when taking the class?
Yes, the BLS Provider Manual is required for course completion and to obtain your BLS Course Completion Card.

Our course fee INCLUDES the BLS Provider Manual, no hidden costs! However, if you are taking the on-line portion, the electronic manual is included in the price of the Heartcode® course.

Is there a written exam in a BLS Course?
Yes, there is a required written exam at the end of the instructor led BLS course which must be passed with an 84%. We thoroughly cover all topics/questions in the exam during the class period. Our goal is not only to help you successfully earn your BLS Course Completion card but to make sure that you take with you a solid understanding and retention of Basic Life Support.
