Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers – Renewal Course

Course Overview
This CPR course is conducted in affiliation with the American Heart Association, which has updated the guidelines for performance of Basic Life Support. This is the course required by healthcare facilities in order to acquire and maintain employment. We are proud to be offering up-to-date information on CPR that came out of the latest international conference. We cover all aspects of adult, child and infant resuscitation, using didactic, practical and return demonstration methods of training. Our 1 to 1 manikin to student ratio increases the amount of time spent on actual skills, resulting in enhanced retention.
