About AHA Basic Life Support (CPR)
AHA Basic Life Support (CPR) is a required certification for pre-hospital and in-facility hospital providers. To summarize, 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 covered in AHA BLS include: Choking, AED, bag-mask ventilation, as well as basic airway management. Lastly, students will learn how to confidently recognize cardiac arrest, activate EMS, and quickly respond with chest compression’s.
Nowadays, there are 2 ways to obtain your AHA Basic Life Support (CPR) card. Students may choose to complete an Instructor-Led course at our comfortable Costa Mesa or San Diego training site; or, an AHA BLS HeartCode at home. The AHA BLS HeartCode requires the completion of an on-line course and an in-person skills check-off with a BLS Instructor. Both options are available weekly for flexibility. Also, BLS may be completed with ACLS.
Why should you choose NEO for your AHA BLS Certification?
Tragically, most facilities will suspend you if your AHA Basic Life Support certification expires. In addition, you will NOT be able to return to work until you possess a current card. Fortunately, Nurses Educational Opportunities has “your back.” We have BLS instructors available 6 days a week, in case of emergencies. Furthermore, for over 20 years, Nurses Educational Opportunities has remained committed to exceptional training by providing the best instructors, free study materials, snacks, drinks, and a comfortable environment.

Our instructor, Helen, was great in our class! She went over the AHA ACLS content very thoroughly and provided great "real world"-type scenarios that helped reinforce the education. I'd definitely recommend coming to Nurse's Ed for your ACLS renewal or certification if you need it!
I've been coming to NEO for 10 years and Helen is just amazing! She focuses on the important changes for the course and makes it simple for better retention! Thank you Helen and NEO for making renewals as stress-free as possible!
