AHA Basic Life Support (BLS) Course
The American Heart Association’s 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, which is designed to provide quick emergency information to the rescuer at any time.
Upon successful completion of the course, including skills and written tests, students receive a BLS course completion card, which is valid for 2 years. The course is available in Arabic & English languages.
Primary Audience: BLS course is designed 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.
