BLS (Basic Life Support)
The Canadian Red Cross phased out a CPR Level that was formerly available for Healthcare Providers called CPR-Level HCP in 2019 and replaced it with a course called BLS (Basic Life Support) which exceeds requirements formerly found in HCP-level training.
The BLS course is designed for professionals with a duty to respond which includes in-facility care providers such as Nursing staff, Care Aids, Medical and Dental professionals; as well as pre-hospital care providers such as Fire Services, Rescue Services, Life Guards, Ski Patrol, Sports Medicine, and more.
BLS certification is only valid for ONE YEAR. BLS can be renewed in a 2-hour BLS Recert course.
Please note that the BLS course cannot be provided during any regular First Aid/CPR course. Students must enroll in a BLS-specific course where ALL students participating will require BLS training.
- BLS can be provided as a Stand-Alone course (4 hours)
- BLS can be provided with Airway Management added (5 hours)
- BLS can be provided with Oxygen Therapy added (5 hours)
- BLS can be provided with Airway Management & Oxygen Therapy added (6 hours)
