BLS Certification Classes: How Do I Get A BLS Certificate?
BLS certification classes are now available in order for you to get a BLS certificate. Kansas City First Aid offers three different Basic Life Support (BLS) certification classes. BLS is a level care which patients will receive in an emergency.
Whether you work in the medical industry, are in school to become a nurse or physician, or are an Emergency Medical Technician, police officer, or firefighter, when you get BLS certified you can show your employer that you have the training you need to improve patient outcomes.
We offer three BLS certification classes so you can obtain an BLS certificate:
BLS Certification for Healthcare Providers CPR Course
If you are a first-time student or your certification has expired, this is the best option for you. The American Heart Association Healthcare Provider Course is designed to teach the skills of CPR for victims of all ages. Other skills include ventilation with a barrier device, a bag-mask device, use on an automated external defibrillator (AED), and relief of a foreign-body airway obstruction. This course is intended for participants who provide healthcare to patients in a wide variety of settings, and there is no prerequisite.
This course takes between three to four hours, and when completed, participants will receive an American Heart Association BLS certification for Healthcare Providers CPR/AED course completion care which is valid for two years.
BLS Certification for Healthcare Providers CPR Online Renewal
This course is designed specifically for experienced healthcare providers who have prior CPR training and need recertification. The online course provides the opportunity to refresh sills and recertify without taking the full content course in a traditional classroom. A brief Skills Test in a classroom must also be completed to receive a new completion card. Prerequisite: Current BLS for Healthcare Providers course completion card.
