EMSLRC Courses and Registrations

BLS (CPR) Courses

These courses, developed by the American Heart Association (AHA), are open to anyone who wishes to obtain a BLS Healthcare Provider (CPR) course completion card. These courses are designed to provide a wide variety of health care professionals the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely, and effective manner. When registering you will have the option to complete either a full provider course or renewal course; the full provider course will last approximately 2 to 2.5 hours depending on participation, remediation, or additional questions and is dedicated to first time course completers or individuals that may need additional remediation. The renewal course is designed for providers that are proficient in CPR and this course will last approximately 1.5 to 2 hours depending on participation, remediation, or additional questions.
