Basic Life Support (BLS) Course

28 JULY 2024

*registration for next session on 25 August 2024 will be open soon



Anyone can learn CPR - and everyone should! Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. As a bystander, don't be afraid. Your actions can only help. If you don't know CPR, perhaps it's time to learn.

Performing CPR will require some extent of physical exertion. Therefore, this event may not be suitable for:

  • Women in late stage of pregnancy
  • Those with back, arm or knee injuries that will hinder one from kneeling or performing chest compressions

Being trained in CPR provides the knowledge, confidence and skills to stay calm in a medical emergency and help a person in need. Individuals certified in CPR are prepared to make a difference in their community by being ready to jump into action anywhere a cardiac arrest happens.

What's the Difference Between BLS and CPR certification?
CPR is an emergency life-saving procedure performed on people with cardiac arrest. Whereas Basic Life Support (BLS) includes CPR but is an overall higher level of medical care typically administered by public safety professionals, first responders, paramedics, healthcare providers and qualified bystanders. CPR is taught in BLS certification classes, but since BLS certification is intended for healthcare professionals, the class is more in-depth than the traditional CPR training. Not everyone needs to get certified in BLS since most of the time CPR certification will be enough to provide lifesaving care in offices, schools and other safe environments.

Which Certification Should I Get?
This depends on your reason for getting a certification. If you want to feel more prepared in emergencies, traditional CPR certification is a great idea. If your job requires a certification, most of the time CPR certification will meet job requirements (better yet, check with them on the specific requirements!). If you're in healthcare field, a BLS certification is most appropriate.
