Covid-19 / Coronavirus

During the Covid-19 pandemic, nursing students will take their BLS course as two components:

Part 1: Online Learning

You will receive an email with instructions on how to access the Heart & Stroke Foundation online learning portal within 1 business day of registration.

Finish your online learning to receive a certificate of completion which is a valid, conditional certificate pending the completion of Part 2: Classroom Learning.

Part 2: Classroom Learning

Classroom learning includes practicing hands-on skills. Participants must complete Part 1 before attending; bring your Part 1 certificate to Part 2 as proof of eligibility. Complete Part 2 in order to receive your full one-year certification.

Note: Part 2 must be completed within 90 days of Part 1, but due to Covid-19 there is an extended grace period for completion. Classroom learning dates will be available once it is safe to resume in-person training.

Should I take a full course or a recertification?

You must take a full course if:

  • You have never taken a Basic Life Support course before
  • Your previous Basic Life support certificate is expired
  • You have a Canadian Red Cross Basic Life Support or CPR with Health Care Provider certificate, but you have not taken the Heart & Stroke renewal assessment

You are eligible to take a recertification course if:
