$65.00 ITEM #0517-1644
American Heart Association Authorized Training Center

This BLS Provider Renewal CPR Course teaches basic life support skills for application in both in-facility and pre-hospital settings, with a focus on high-quality CPR, improvement of chest compression fraction, and high-performing team dynamics. Participants are trained to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations, and provide early use of an AED.

It is important to note that the BLS Provider Renewal CPR Training DOES NOT include First Aid. This is because this training is intended for those who already have a level of First Aid, EMS, or higher level of training. If you need First Aid and CPR training you should consider our Heartsaver® Courses.
