BLS - Basic Life Support for the Healthcare Provider
We offer the American Heart Association's BLS for Healthcare Providers Course which is designed to train you in the lifesaving skills of both CPR and AED use, and relief of choking based on the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines.
We recommend you purchase a CPR Micromask (available from our bookstore call (952) 885-5416 to order).
Please wear loose comfortable clothing. You will be practicing skills that require working on your hands and knees, bending, standing and lifting. Please tell one of the instructors when you arrive for the course if you have any physical conditions that might prevent these activities. The instructor will work to accommodate your needs within the stated course completion requirements.
