OPTION 2 - Rarely given Most of the time, we set this up for private renewal classes for nurses, at a doctors office or dental office. We can do the option 2 type of class if there is a group or business that wishes to do this and needs to email us ahead of time to set up:
If we set this up for your office, everyone must do the online portion ahead of time and pay the AHA for the online portion first, then us for the 2nd hands on part. That is why we recommend the traditional classroom setting. With the blended class, students will first learn online during a 1.5 hour online scenario and video based sessions (not in class) single-rescuer and team basic life support for adults, children and infants through 5 interactive exercises, scenarios and a written test. Navigation controls allow students to move easily through content as they learn how to recognize life-threatening emergencies, provide high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilation and provide early use of an AED. Course also teaches relief of choking. After this online portion is done, you email us if you have a group to do a 55 minute hands on portion and get your card.
BLS for Healthcare Providers Online part 1
This self-paced course is accessible anytime from any computer. Students can access the BLS for Healthcare Providers Student Manual, BLS Pocket Reference Card and more for 24 months.
Upon successful completion of any of the above online courses you must meet with a CPR Florida instructor to complete your skills test. Skills tests take about 1 hour depending on skill level. The online courses are issued the same exact card from the American Heart Association as the in person classes.
This class can be done for first time or expired people, but it is highly recommended
if you have never taken the cpr or bls class, are "rusty" or might feel slightly pressured in a faster class, pick the normal $80 classroom class which is just over 3 hours long.
