American Heart BLS Healthcare CPR certification training
The American Heart BLS for the Healthcare Provider CPR training is for all healthcare workers including nurses, nursing assistants, dental workers, hygienists, nursing students or anyone in the health care field. Our classes include CPR for adults, infants, and children. Treatment for an airway obstruction is also given. Included in every class is complete instruction on proper use of an AED.
The American Heart Healthcare CPR certification is the most widely accepted certification there is. Many employers or college entrance requirements will not recognize another certification through a different organization. We teach and certify through the American Heart.
Upon completion of this class you will receive a 2 year BLS certification through the American Heart Association. All of the instructors with In-Pulse CPR come with years of experience in the medical field and offer real life experiences to better understand the importance of CPR training. We offer complete CPR training in a fun and educational environment and will provide you with more than just the information but will help to instill a confidence that you will be able to handle any emergency.
Our instructors would be happy to offer a private training for your staff. These 4 hour classes are offered Monday through Saturday at a time that is convenient to you. Or for individuals, please visit our class calendar for a listing of public and community classes in your area.
