Heart & Stroke: BLS Blended 90 (Basic Life Support)

BLS Provider is an instructor-led fundamental course for all healthcare and emergency medical providers, intended to help you improve patient outcomes. You will learn single- and multi-rescuer basic life support skills with a focus on high-quality CPR and team dynamics in a wide variety of prehospital or in-facility settings. BLS is a pre-requisite for advanced resuscitation courses and many healthcare-related training programs. Current certification is often required for employment in the healthcare field.

Note: If you work or plan to work for Alberta Health Services, you likely require Heart & Stroke: Basic Life Support, ie. this course.

The BLS Blended 90 format is designed for BLS learners who are confident in their BLS skills, but don’t use them routinely in their normal practice. After successfully passing the online component (self-directed, but typically approx. 1 – 2 hours), students attend a 90 minute in-person skills practice and evaluation session.
