BLS certification in CPR/AED for healthcare providers and professional rescuers

If you are a nurse, EMT, medic or other healthcare provider; or a firefighter, police officer, lifeguard or other first responder; then you need BLS (basic life support) training and BLS certification. In such professions, you’re required to know …

  • how to provide CPR for adults, children and infants;
  • how to perform both one-rescuer and two-rescuer CPR;
  • how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator) and a BVM (bag-valve-mask); and
  • how to coordinate efforts with other rescuers in providing high-performance CPR, as well as high-quality CPR.

If you have that requirement, then the class you need (or want) is “Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers.”

This American Red Cross class is the equivalent of the American Heart Association class, “BLS for Healthcare Providers.” Both certification and recertification classes come with a two-year certification upon successful completion of the course.

There are no prerequisites for any of our classes (except for re-certification/review classes). If unclear about which class to choose, please read the class descriptions or contact us and we’ll do our best to help you decide.

At CPR-Twin Cities, we take life-saving seriously. Unlike some other training organizations, we don’t cut corners. We keep our classes down to a size where everyone gets the attention they deserve. Plus all of our instructors are highly experienced at teaching American Red Cross classes.

I was definitely impressed with the amount that I learned. I would feel completely comfortable providing CPR or first aid to someone.

And we’re flexible. We offer a wide variety of American Red Cross courses to individuals in our training center, located in the Highland Park neighborhood of St. Paul. We also offer those same American Red Cross classes to groups, held in the convenience of your workplace or the comfort of your own living room.
