Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers is one of American Heart Association’s first responder CPR courses. This covers all basic CPR certification needed for working in a hospital or medical care facility. If you are not a healthcare provider, you can still participate in this course! There is no pre course information necessary. It is designed to give you the fundamentals of CPR in a medical setting. The course also provides CEU units for dental workers such as DMD’s DDO’s RDA and RDH’s.


Advanced Cardiac Life Support is an advanced course for Healthcare Providers who are involved in units or workplace situations that use advanced mega codes. The course is designed for the student to have a basic knowledge of cardiac drugs, basic rhythms and how to apply them in a critical situation. ECG/Pharmacology is a great precourse to this class. The students are required to take a pre course through their student manual, complete the coursework and sit for a written exam and megacode skills test. Nurses, RTs and Paramedics can receive CEU’s for this course.


Pediatric Advanced Life Support is designed to provide the Healthcare Provider with knowledge on pediatric life saving skills. The students will be given case studies, walked through airway management systems and given the opportunity to practice codes on an infant and child in simulation. If a person wishes to take the course and is not familiar with the material, they should consider PEARS or Airway Management to familiarize themselves with the airway management material. Students are required to complete all course videos, sit for a written exam, and code case skills test. Nurses, RT’s and Paramedics can receive CEU’s for this course.


Electrocardiogram and Pharmacology was designed as a pre course for Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). The course provides students with a basic understanding of cardiac rhythm interpretation and drug administration for ACLS algorithms. Anyone can take this course with no prior knowledge to advanced cardiac care.
