BLS and ALS training is one of the most popular training programs offered throughout the country. BLS and ALS stand for Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support respectively, and teaches trainees how to give CPR to a victim or patient experiencing cardiac arrest. We have over 6 providers in 5 states, all offering CPR certification classes for the most affordable fees. Because of our large program selection, you won’t find a hard time selecting one that suits your certification needs.

Our training programs are categorized under Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support. BLS training covers basic CPR skills like chest compressions, and are typically completed in a single four-hour program over one day. Skills learned from BLS training are made to manage cardiac arrest before medical help arrives. ALS programs are much more complicated, targeted mainly towards healthcare providers (HCPs). They teach CPR management in clinical set ups, with equipment and medication.
All of the programs give mandatory post-tests that trainees have to pass to get certified. Only the general public program allows trainees to choose not to get certified.
