St. Louis BLS Recertification for Healthcare Providers

Where to Go in St. Louis, MO & Details about BLS Recertification.

Basic Life Support (BLS) is required by healthcare providers who are in direct patient contact. Sometimes referred to as BCLS aha, BLS must be renewed every two years by most healthcare providers. BLS classes are similar to CPR, but more advanced. CPR classes are more appropriate for the lay person, whereas BLS classes are for professional healthcare providers.

There are online BLS classes, but most are not American Heart Association (AHA) approved. If you read the Terms or FAQ’s link on the site that offers the online courses, very often you will see they are not AHA accredited. Most employers do not accept BLS provider cards that are not AHA.

Although the American Heart Association does offer an approved online BLS class, there still is a mandatory in-person skills test that must be taken. The online BLS class is about 2 hours in length and covers part 1 of the course. The in-person skills test covers parts 2 and 3. You need parts 2 and 3 in order to receive your AHA BLS provider card.
