This course is for healthcare professionals who need to know how to perform CPR, as well as other lifesaving skills, in a wide variety of in-hospital and out-of-hospital settings.

The American Heart Association’s BLS training is cutting-edge, not only in terms of its evidence-based content, but in its use of a well-tested methodology that can dramatically improve both the learning and retention of lifesaving skills.

It is highly recommended that you take each one of these sections in the sequence as listed.  After you earn a certificate through this website, you may contact one of our training centers for your skills check. View our Training Sites.
