BLS for Healthcare Provider

This course covers CPR (including two-rescuer scenarios and use of the bag mask) and use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for adults, children, and infants. This certification is required for most healthcare providers that work in patient care areas and for students enrolled in medical and nursing programs.

The course is intended for healthcare professionals and healthcare students with clinical responsibilities such as EMS personnel, physician assistants, doctors, dentists, nurses, respiratory therapists, and any other person who requires a Healthcare Provider CPR course.
