The Basic Life Support (BLS) course at CPR Plus focuses on CPR and defibrillation best practices and the importance of early recognition. The on-site American Heart Association (AHA) training teaches the leading industry standards required for healthcare providers and OSHA compliance.
CPR Plus delivers convenient in-person training to your office space to accommodate your company’s schedule. We also help individuals who are seeking BLS certification by offering classes at multiple locations throughout the St. Louis.
Upon successful completion of the course, a certification card will be issued within 24 hours or even the same day of the class. The card is valid for two years.
The BLS course will methodically guide students through the following areas:
- How to perform adult, child, and infant CPR
- Two-person CPR
- Correct bag valve mask use
- Treating for choking and airway obstruction
- Rescue breathing techniques
- AED operation
While this foundational BLS course is strongly recommended and even required for many healthcare professionals, obtaining a CPR and defibrillation certification is advantageous for many other occupations such as lifeguards, police officers, and bus drivers.
CPR Plus offers another unique way to become BLS certified. The HeartCode® BLS program is a great option for students who want to learn outside of the traditional classroom setting. This two-part, online opportunity gives students the freedom to review material at their own pace.
