The Basic Life Support course covers all the basics of adult, child and infant life support, such as CPR skills, AED use, BVM ventilation and choking. It is geared for those working or entering the healthcare field. The provider cards are current for 2 years. There are two options for course completion: a live class which is generally about 3-4 hours and cost is $75 or completing the first part of the course online through the AHA’s elearning website and then coming for a skills check off. Our fee for the skills check is $50 but the AHA does charge to use their online system, so the cost is only a few dollars difference.
