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.


There are no prerequisites for taking this class and you don’t even need to be a health and safety professional. All you need is a desire to learn more than in a general CPR class.
In review (or recertification) classes, all students will be required to show proof of successful completion of the same CPR-Twin Cities class (or its American Red Cross or American Heart Association equivalent) within the past two years. (There is a grace period of 30 days.)

While delivery is free for most classes held in Minneapolis, St. Paul and their first-ring suburbs, there is a minimum delivery charge of $45 per session for classes held beyond the first ring of suburbs. Due to time- and labor-intensive logistical factors in high-density areas, there is a $100 delivery charge for CPR classes held in downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul.

The prices listed listed on this page are for a minimum of six students per class. To be able to conduct required group activities and still maintain our high standards for exceptional personal attention, we limit our Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers CPR/AED class to no more than nine students per class.

Our per-student pricing for this class is already discounted for groups, at $5 per student below our regular prices for individuals. In addition, there is a 10% discount off that discounted price if you:

  • book and pay for training for at least 25 students (in more than one class session, to maintain the per-class maximum); or
  • book and pay for your class at least 60 days in advance.

Since short-notice classes are more complicated to coordinate, there is a 10% surcharge on classes scheduled and paid for less than 14 days in advance, and a 25% surcharge on classes scheduled and paid for less than 7 days in advance.

Discounts and surcharges have no effect on the delivery fee.

All prices are subject to change without notice.
