The American Heart Association’s BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Part 1 Course, Web-based and accessible 24 hours a day, provides a flexible alternative to classroom training. Through case-based scenarios, interactive activities and videos, this course teaches the concepts of both single-rescuer and team basic life support. 

The online portion of the training must be paired with CPR Etc's hands-on skills practice and testing session at our San Rafael, California training location.   Students who successfully complete the Online training at receive a certificate that allows them entrance into a skills practice and testing session.  An AHA BLS for Healthcare Providers course completion card will be issued upon successful completion of all three parts.
