Basic Life Support (BLS) certification is required by many healthcare employers. This training covers multiple emergency rescue options. Healthline First Aid classes use practical skills training with manikins to simulate real world conditions.
BLS is sometimes interchangeable with CPR certification on job applications. However, CPR courses are not always at the same level of BLS certification for healthcare professionals. Check with your employer to see which certification is required at your healthcare facility. Healthline First Aid offers many CPR courses along with our BLS classes.
