BLS for Healthcare Providers Recert … 2015 Guidelines
The BLS for Healthcare Providers Re-certification course was just updated (November 2015) with the new CPR guidelines by the American Heart Association (AHA) and the Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC). Participants must have current AHA BLS HCP card in their possession in order to be enrolled in this review course. As of March 1, 2016 All BLS CPR Courses will be instructed with the 2015 Guidelines.
As long as all course components are met by a student, the student will receive a BLS Provider Basic Life Support Certification Card in the mail. Please note: The format of the BLS card has changed. It is the BLS CPR for the Healthcare Provider CPR Card, even though it doesn’t state that specifically. This card is the new version of the old “Healthcare Provider” CPR Card. The new format comes directly from the American Heart Association, and unfortunately, neither we at The Institute for Continuing Education nor Lifesavers can do anything about the new card design.
