What is it?
The Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers (HCP) Course is a video-based, Instructor-led course that teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support. This course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED.
BLS for Healthcare Providers teaches skills using the American Heart Association’s proven Practice-While-Watching technique, which allows Instructors to observe students, provide feedback and guide students’ acquisition of skills.
With their student manual for the course, students receive the new Pocket Reference Card, designed to provide quick
emergency information to the rescuer at any time.

I was watching my little brother and he started choking. I followed the procedures I learned your class I needed for school and my brother is alive today thanks to you.
I not only receive more babysitting jobs on the weekends due to my CPR training, but I feel more confident when I'm watching kids thanks to you.
