Aims And Objectives

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 prove early use of an AED. BLS for Healthcare Providers teaches skills using the American Heart Association’s (AHA) proven Practice-While-Watching technique, which allows Instructors to observe students, provide feedback and guide students’ acquisition of skills. 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 life saving skills.
