The BLS Course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED. In this Instructor-led course, students will participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. Students will work with two American Heart Association Basic Life Support (BLS) Instructors to complete BLS skills practice and skills testing. For BLS Certification, students will also complete a written exam.
