Basic Life Support Course
This course is intended for those who are certified/licensed healthcare providers or those who provide direct patient care. The course is video based with hands on interactive practice and skills stations. AHA Best Practice Guidelines are explained and reinforced. There is plenty of time for practice and questions. The class is approximately 4 to 4.5 hours in length, depending on the size of the class.
This option is for those who may not be able to attend a regular BLS course. Online renewal of BLS status is done through the online AHA website. The course is divided into three parts with part 1 being the online didactic portion and parts 2 & 3 being the skills practice and demonstration here at the Life Support Education Department. There is a cost for the online renewal that is paid to AHA for part 1. Please note: UTMB does not reimburse staff members for the AHA part 1 course. Skills practice and demonstration are offered free of charge for UTMB staff members. For additional information contact LSED at (409) 772-2823 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
