Basic Life Support Provider

The Basic Life Support course is aimed for participants who provide health care to patients.  The course comprises 11 Parts and teaches the skills of CPR and choking for victims of all ages, including ventilation with barrier devices, pocket masks, bag-valve-mask devices, and the use of Automated External Defibrillators.

A BLS Provider Manual has been provided to you for review before, during and after the course. For successful completion of the course, you will be expected to demonstrate proficiency in CPR and AED use and obtain a score of at least 84% in the final written evaluation.

Leading up to the course , we recommend you go through each lesson’s review questions (see downloadable PDFs below) to keep you on track to cover all the material. Note: Part 1 does not consist of any review questions.

You will earn 11 CPD credits by successfully completing this course. Our aim is to prepare you for the final written exam so that no time is wasted by having to take the exam twice.

You may notice on page 2 of the Provider Manual the American Heart Association approves an open-book exam. The Resus Council allows you access to the reference card only (contained in your Provider Manual). The reason: being a healthcare professional, there is no time to refer to the manual should you need to perform CPR in a live situation. They expect our healthcare professionals to be fully trained and prepared for cardiac arrest emergencies.
