BLS (Basic Life Support) Certification
Students enrolled in clinical courses must be certified by the American Heart Association with Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers/Professionals and must provide a copy of their card showing proof of certification. We do not accept online courses. We do not accept Red Cross courses. Other courses, such as Heartsaver AED/CPR, do not meet our clinical contract requirements. For your convenience, listed below are some recommended resources for certification/ recertification:
