Who should take the BLS Provider Full Certification class?
Health care providers who are frequently expected to perform CPR. Those confident in their BLS skills through regular use in their work in the ED, CCU, ICU on code team, or paramedics and first responders. Anyone who is planning to complete the ACLS program must complete the Heart & Stroke Foundation version of BLS Provider.
What will I learn?
The class covers CPR, obstructed airway procedures, and artificial respiration for adults, children and infants. The Automated External Defibrillator and Bag Valve Mask are also used in simulations. You will practice working in a team as you would in a hospital environment, performing pulse checks, artificial respiration and using equipment used in a health care environment.
BLS certification from the Heart & Stroke Foundation Canada (HSF) and Red Cross (RC) is valid for 1 year. Re-certification is required every year for most health care professionals, regardless of expiry date. For those planning to take an Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) course, the Heart and Stroke Foundation Canada version of BLS Provider is required.
