We offer the American Heart Association's BLS for Healthcare Providers Course which is designed to train you in the lifesaving skills of both CPR and AED use, and relief of choking based on the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines.
Because the BLS for Healthcare Providers Course covers a lot of material in a relatively short time, the following advanced preparation is recommended:
- Purchase a 2010 BLS for the Healthcare Provider text and CPR Micromask (available from our bookstore call (952) 885-5416 to order)
- Review the text, paying particular attention to the steps of CPR and relief of choking.
- Carefully read the objectives at the beginning of each section in the text.
- Review the video clips on the CD.
Please wear loose comfortable clothing. You will be practicing skills that require working on your hands and knees, bending, standing and lifting. Please tell one of the instructors when you arrive for the course if you have any physical conditions that might prevent these activities. The instructor will work to accommodate your needs within the stated course completion requirements.
