What is a BLS Class | BLS Classes Near Me

The Basic Life Support (BLS) Class is an instructional course for anyone that works in a higher-risk or medically oriented workplace.   This course teaches a more in-depth approach to CPR. We gear the BLS course towards educating participants on how to react and treat appropriately during emergencies.   

Who Needs a BLS Certification?

A BLS Class is necessary for those who work in more demanding, high-risk work environments.  Such careers would include professionals like EMTs, lifeguards, police officers, teachers, coaches, daycare providers, and many more.  For those currently working, or planning to work, with emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care, or critical care units, then BLS is the course for you. However, if you are still unsure of the courses you need, contact your employer for more information.
