Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers

Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers is designed for physicians, dentists, physician assistants, nurses, respiratory therapists, EMS personnel, and allied health providers who require a card documenting successful completion of a CPR course with written and practical examinations. This course is generally required as a pre-requisite for nursing, EMT, and allied health students, as well as those interested in becoming CPR instructors.

Courses are scheduled weekly, subject to enrollment, on Tuesday mornings at 8:30 a.m. and Tuesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. Classes last approximately 4 hours. Cost is $90, inclusive of all materials, including textbook and pocket mask. With 2010 changes in the refresher curriculum, renewals are conducted at the same time as the initial course and for the same fee.
