The AHA's BLS Course provides the foundation for saving lives from cardiac arrest. It teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both pre-hospital and in-facility environments, with a focus on high-quality CPR and team dynamics.
The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in BLS and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the American Heart Association. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course material, do not represent income to the association.
• Certification cards for BLS providers are valid for two years. It is the cardholder’s responsibility to contact a training center or institution to arrange for a renewal course and written exam.
• BLS provider and renewal courses are limited to the first 18 qualified pre-paid registrants.
For further information on evidence-based resuscitation guidelines, Provider and Instructor Course participants are encouraged to review the website http:// www.c2005.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=3022512
