BLS CPR Training and Certification: “Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers” (BLS for Healthcare Providers)

Like the American Red Cross (ARC) “Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers” and American Heart Association (AHA) “BLS for Healthcare Providers” classes, this is the level of training required for most nurses, paramedics, EMTs, firefighters, lifeguards, etc. In this class you learn both one-rescuer CPR and two-rescuer CPR. For best possible outcomes, you will learn and practice high-performance CPR and high-quality CPR. You will learn how to operate an automated external defibrillator (AED), how to use a bag-valve-mask (BVM), how to use personal protective equipment (such as breathing barriers and gloves), as well as how to assist choking victims. Additionally, you will learn about legal considerations regarding providing care.

CPR-Twin Cities certification, awarded upon successful completion of this class, is valid for two years. While this level of certification is the equivalent of the ARC and AHA classes, we recommend that you read our class description and check with your employer, school or organization before registering, to be certain that this class meets their requirements.
