BLS (HCP) Renewal Course


This level of CPR is ideal for those working in or planning to work in the health care field. A Lifesaving Society (LSS), Red Cross (RC) or Heart & Stroke Foundation (HSF) certification is provided upon successful completion. As a recertification, a previous certification must be provided prior to successful completion.

BLS (Basic Life Support) has replaced the old CPR-HCP (health care provider) program.

  • ***By order of the Provincial Health Officer, Link2Life now requires all class participants to provide proof of vaccination for all in-person classes and workshops***

    For ACLS, you must take a Heart & Stroke Foundation class.

Who should take the BLS Provider (HCP) Renewal Certification class?

Health care providers who are frequently expected to perform CPR. Those confident in their basic life support skills through regular use in their work in the ED, CCU, ICU on code team, or paramedics and first responders. Anyone who takes this class must already have taken a CPR-HCP/BLS class previously, and be able to provide Link2Life with a copy of that certification.

If you have not taken a CPR-HCP/BLS class before or do not have a copy of your old certification, please see our CPR-HCP/BLS Full Certification course page.

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. 

Certification options

Link2Life offers Lifesaving Society, Red Cross and Heart & Stroke Foundation certification options. All options are valid for 1 year, but the Heart & Stroke Foundation is the only option that is a prerequisite for ACLS. *Any class that indicates BL means blended learning, which means there is an online component which must be completed prior to the scheduled in-class portion. This will be emailed within 48 hours of registration.

Please note that most schools/workplaces do not require a specific certification, but please feel free to contact Link2Life if you have any concerns regarding the different options. *It is recommended that if you have any concerns that you confirm with your school/workplace as Link2Life does not take responsibility if you attend an incorrect certification.
