CPR for Basic Life Support

CPR for Basic Life Support

Program Overview

If you are a medical or nursing student, aide, medical assistant, or other healthcare professional in need of your BLS/CPR certification, Gurnick offers a CPR continuing education course. The CPR course is a Continuing Education Course and is not accredited. It is intended for professionals and brings participants up-to-date in knowledge and skills. The full course is approximately 4.5 hours, while the renewal course is 3 hours. Upon completion of the class, students who pass the test will receive the BLS/CPR card, which is valid for two years. If students do not pass the test, they will not receive the card.

The goal of the Basic Life Support Course is to train participants to save the lives of victims in cardiac arrest through high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The American Heart Association designed the Basic Life Support Course to prepare healthcare professionals to perform CPR both in and out of hospital settings. This course trains participants to promptly recognize cardiac arrest, give high quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations, and provide early use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) as part of a team and individually. This course includes adult, child, and infant rescue techniques.
