Note that BCIT nursing accepts both BLS (basic life support) and CPR-HCP (health care provider) certifications. April 2019 classes will be run with a Red Cross BLS instructor so the certification awarded to sucessful students will be a Red Cross Basic Life Support certification card. Certifications will be valid for 1 year.
If none of the available BCIT dates work for you or if you prefer a different certification please check our regular registration page for Heart and Stroke Foundation BLS or Lifesaving Society CPR-HCP certification options. These courses will also be accepted for your nursing program at BCIT. Heart and Stroke Foundation BLS certifications are also valid for 1 year but this is the necessary pre-requisite for ACLS so if you plan to take ACLS this year please choose a HSF BLS course. Lifesaving Society CPR-HCP certifications are valid for 3 years although annual re-certification is still recommended (and required for BCIT nursing). If having a certification that is valid for more than 1 year is important to you please check our our LSS options. Contact us directly before singing up if you have any questions or concerns about these options!
