BLS Initial Certification

Purpose:

Heartcode BLS Online training is the most high tech, official American Heart Association (AHA) Self-Directed Comprehensive eLearning Program. It allows students to take the BLS course on a computer, instead of attending a traditional, classroom setting. By using simulation technology and scenario-based learning, studies have shown this to be very effective. However, it MUST be completed with a hands-on skills session.

Course Content

  • Basic life support skills, including effective chest compressions, use of a bag-mask device, and use of an AED
  • High-quality CPR for adults, children, and infants
  • The AHA Chain of Survival, specifically the BLS components
  • Important early use of an AED
  • Effective ventilations using a barrier device
  • Importance of teams in multirescuer resuscitation and performance as an effective team member during multi-rescuer CPR
  • Relief of foreign-body airway obstruction (choking) for adults and infants
