Our online BLS (Basic Life Support) certification course provides you with fundamental life support skills and knowledge. It is specifically designed for healthcare professionals and teaches the concepts and techniques of CPR. You will learn the most up-to-date techniques available to manage and respond to cardiopulmonary emergencies. Those who complete the course will receive 4 CEU/CME credits.
BLS certification is an appropriate choice if you are a healthcare professional who has not previously completed a BLS course or if you want an in-depth refresher. If you have recently held an active BLS certification and are an experienced BLS provider, you should sign up for our BLS recertification course.
The BLS certification course covers the following:
The process is relatively simple, and we will take you through every step to meet all your BLS certification requirements and obtain your BLS certification card – from receiving your training material and studying the curriculum developed by our medical advisory board, to taking and passing your certification exam and receiving your provider card.
CPR covers the basics of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and life support and is a basic component of your BLS training and certification with us. We offer BLS for healthcare providers – Basic Life Support training directly geared towards the needs and requirements of medical professionals. Our BLS courses will take you through all the basics of CPR – and beyond just that. BLS certification prepares and certifies you as a basic life support provider specifically for the healthcare industry.
The BLS certification course is approved for 4 CEUs/CMEs, and you should expect to spend that amount of time on your online BLS certification with us – approximately four hours. We will take you through all your BLS certification requirements, from preparation and study to passing the exam and becoming certified. After you’ve completed the course and passed the test, you will be instantly certified for BLS. A digital, printable copy of your provider card will be available as soon as you pass the certification exam unless you have elected to complete the skills evaluation. (Students who choose to complete the skills evaluation will have access to their digital, printable card within one business day of when we receive and have verified the forms stating they successfully passed on their clinical skills.) Your printed BLS certification card will be mailed to you within two to three business days of when your digital card is issued.
Our BLS courses and online BLS certifications are nationally accredited and accepted by many healthcare employers and facilities, and tens of thousands of medical professionals have successfully earned their BLS and other emergency life support certifications through our courses and programs. Our online BLS courses are built upon the latest emergency cardiovascular care (ECC) guidelines as published by the American Heart Association (AHA) and determined in conjunction with the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), which is responsible for the coordination of all aspects of cardiopulmonary and cerebral resuscitation worldwide, including the latest peer-reviewed articles and expert consensus guidelines. In short, we coordinate with and are recognized by many governing bodies and agencies, and we work hard to gain approval from employers across the country for your BLS requirements, but we cannot guarantee that each and every agency and institution will accept your BLS certification through us. Please check with your particular facility to confirm that online BLS certification will be accepted.
