Basic Life Support Instructor Course is designed to train professionals to respond to cardiac and breathing emergencies for adult, child, and infant victims. Consistent with the 2020 AHA Guidelines for CPR/ECC, BLS is the foundational CPR/AED program typically required for healthcare providers and public safety professionals. Through the use of lecture, skills demonstration and practice, case-based emergency response scenarios, and reflection and debriefing activities with a focus on team-based response, BLS builds the key critical thinking, problem solving, and team dynamic skills that are needed to drive better patient outcomes. Upon successful completion of the course, learners will receive a 2-year “Basic Life Support Instructor” digital certificate with anytime, anywhere access to certificate and training history.
