This half day Basic Life Support (BLS) Healthcare Provider Course is brought to you by the NC TraCS CTRC and Triangle CPR.

Basic Life Support for the Healthcare Provider is commonly required for all medical and dental professionals. This includes licensed and non-licensed study coordinators and research assistants.

The American Heart Association's BLS Course has been updated to include science and education from the 2020 Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC. It teaches both single-rescuer and team Basic Life Support skills for application in both pre-hospital and in-facility environments, with a focus on high-quality CPR, the various chains of survival and team dynamics.

In this instructor-led course, students will participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. Students work with an AHA BLS Instructor to complete BLS skills practice and skills testing; and complete a written exam. To successfully complete the course and an receive a certification card (valid for two years), you must attend the full session, successfully complete the skills practice and pass the exam. Note: this course is appropriate for students who require initial training as well as recertification.

  • Adult, Child and Infant CPR (1 and 2 rescuer)
