Course Details

Basic Life Support is the fundamental course for all healthcare and emergency medical providers, delivered in a flexible format. The BLS Blended Learning course covers the same curriculum and teaches the same skills as the conventional instructor-led course but is delivered online through self-paced learning modules. The course covers single- and multi-rescuer basic life support skills with a focus on high-quality CPR and team dynamics in a wide variety of prehospital or in-facility settings.

BLS is a pre-requisite for advanced resuscitation courses and many healthcare-related training programs. A current completion card is often required for employment in the healthcare field.

You may also benefit from having your Basic Life Support level if you are a professional with a fire service or rescue team, a sports medicine professional, a lifeguard or a ski patroller. If you are not a first responder or medical professional, you may need CPR Level A or C.
