Basic Life Support (BLS) Renewal Card


Basic Life Skills (BLS) Renewal Course Description

The BLS Renewal Course is for current BLS providers who need to renew their BLS skills and BLS Provider course completion card. This video-based, Instructor-led course features accelerated content that is designed for learners with existing BLS knowledge, allowing for time efficiency while teaching both single-rescuer and team BLS skills for application in both in-facility and prehospital settings. This course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED. It includes adult, child, and infant rescue techniques. This course also teaches relief of choking. BLS teaches skills using the AHA’s research-proven Practice-While-Watching technique, which allows Instructors to observe the students, provide feedback and guide the students’ acquisition of skills.
