Course Information: (RENEWAL and INITIAL Classes offered)
Specially scheduled AHA Basic Life Support (BLS) for Health Care Provider courses are being provided exclusively for Atlanta based Commissioned Corps Officers to help them meet deployment readiness policy requirements. Priority enrollment will be given for active duty officers who need to obtain BLS certification to meet basic standards for readiness.
NOTE: Please be courteous to your fellow officers. If you cannot attend a BLS class which you registered for, please cancel through the Learning Portal so that the system can add another Officer on the wait list.
ALL BLS courses will be held at the Roybal Campus,

Course Description: The BLS for Healthcare Providers Course is designed to teach the skills of CPR for victims of all ages (adult and pediatric) including ventilation with a barrier device, bag-mask ventilation, use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), and relief of foreign-body airway obstruction for the responsive and unresponsive victim.
This course is for those persons whose certification is current. Participants must provide a copy of their current card faxed to the Lifestyle Office (404) 639-4075 as soon as they register for a course in theLearning Portal.
For Renewals, we recommend that you register to renew 3-4 months before your expiration date. This allows you more chance to reschedule before the expiration if a course has to be cancelled due to low registration.
