Overview of the Blended AHA BLS Course During Covid-19 offered by First Response Training:
Our traditional in-person AHA BLS course will be broken into TWO SECTIONS.
Section 1: Online Class - All cognitve information, term and definitions and skills demonstrations in a video format
Section 2: In-Person Class - Hands-on skills practice and testing.
This is done to minimize the amount of time students are exposed to one another when taking this course and is what the AHA recommends we do during the pandemic. Doing this class this way also follows CDC and MN Department of Health guidelines.
Section 1 needs to be completed prior attending Section 2.
This course is for all healthcare providers such as: Doctors, Dentists, Nurses, Dental Hygienists, Dental Assistants, Licensed Practical Nurses, Healthcare Assistants, any healthcare providers that provide patient care, Paramedics, Firefighters, Police Officers, E.M.T.’s, First Responders.
