Students participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. Students work with an Instructor to complete BLS skills practice and skills testing. Students also complete a written exam.
The primary skills taught in the BLS course include cardiopulmonary resuscitation and involves chest compressions to help blood circulation. Training will include CPR for all age groups.
The course consists of practicing the resuscitation exercises on state of the art equipment and demonstrating a correct response in role-play situations during an emergency. This is vital because hands on practice builds muscle memory and helps you remain calm in an emergency. BLS training focuses on both single-rescuer situations as well as team rescues when more than one person is on the scene of an emergency.
Participants are also trained in assessing a scene for safety, critical thinking in an emergency situation, and legal considerations as well as precautions to consider during a rescue. One of the key points in the class are the “ABCs”:
- Circulation – Ensuring that blood is circulating through the body.
- Airway – Clearing any obstructions from the airway to allow air to flow to the lungs.
- Breathing – Making sure the lungs are filling with air.
After course completion there is a written exam that proves you have acquired the course content.
