BLS for the Healthcare Provider Online

Through case-based scenarios, interactive activities and videos, this course teaches the concepts of both single-rescuer and team basic life support. Part 1 must be paired with a hands-on skills practice and testing session (Parts 2 and 3) with an AHA BLS Instructor.
