Description:  As a public safety professional or healthcare provider, it is your duty to respond to cardiac or breathing emergencies until more advanced medical personnel can take over. From assessing needs and making decisions to providing care, this professional-level certification program teaches the basic life support skills required for your job through discussion, video and hands-on training based on real-life rescue scenarios. The program trains professional rescuers (EMTs, nurses, firefighters, law enforcement, athletic trainers, coaches, etc) to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies in adults, children and infants use a team approach until more advanced medical personnel take over. This course is taught directly in line with the American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers curriculum so that professional rescuers are providing the same standard of care regardless of which organization they train with.
