Tip of the Week: BLS CPR Certification Cards
Posted Monday, August 7, 2017 by Shelly Nye
Before registering for a CPR/First Aid course, first confirm with the training provider that you will be issued an official card (not a training certificate) from one of the five accepted agencies (American Heart Association, American Red Cross, American Safety and Health Institute, EMS Safety Services, Medic First Aid). Also, confirm that the training you will receive covers both CPR and FIRST AID. BLS is an extensive CPR course but does not cover First Aid. If you receive a BLS card you will still need to take a First Aid course to fulfill the licensing requirement.
