AHA Basic Life Support is a required certification for pre-hospital and in-facility hospital providers. To summarize, BLS students will learn how to effectively perform CPR for victims of all ages. In addition, learners will practice CPR as a single rescuer and as a member of a multi-rescuer team. Other topics include choking, AED, ventilation, as well as basic airway management. Moreover, students will learn to confidently recognize cardiac arrest, activate EMS, and how to respond with chest compression’s.

A BLS class is for advanced healthcare providers whereas a CPR class is for lay rescuers. Lay rescuers may also take BLS but we highly recommend choosing the correct class based on experience. We offer CPR as well as First Aid classes for lay-rescuers by appointment only.

Tragically, most facilities will suspend you if your AHA BLS certification expires. Additionally, you will not be able to return to work until you possess a current card. Fortunately, NEO has your back. We have instructors available six days a week for those last minute emergencies. Moreover, for over 20 years, NEO has remained committed to exceptional training by employing the best instructors. We also provide free study materials, snacks and drinks. All in all, NEO has a reputation for maintaining a fun and comfortable environment.

Contact us if you have any questions regarding the BLS certification.

The New Grad Discount can only be applied by phone. Lastly, BLS may be replaced with Management of Assaultive Behavior.
