Course Description:

The goal of the BLS course is to train participants to save the lives of victims of cardiac arrest through high-quality CPR. The AHA designed the BLS Course to teach healthcare professionals how to perform high-quality CPR individually or as part of a team. BLS skills are applicable to any healthcare setting. BLS students will learn rescue techniques for adults, children, and infants. 

Intended Audience:

This course is designed for healthcare professionals and other personnel who need to know how to perform CPR and other basic cardiovascular life support skills in various in-hospital and out-of-hospital settings.

Course materials:
Students will be provided a copy of the BLS Provider Manual for use during their course. This book will be handed out at the beginning of class and collected at the class's conclusion. *Students will be assessed a fee of $16 if course materials are not returned at the conclusion of the course.
 
Students can purchase the BLS Provider manual ebook (digital download) for use before and after their classes directly from the AHA by visiting  https://shopcpr.heart.org/bls-provider-manual-ebook. Students may also purchase the paperback version directly from the AHA as well.

Course Description:

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is an educational program jointly sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Heart Association (AHA). The NRP course conveys an evidence-based approach to the care of the newborn at birth and facilitates effective team-based care for healthcare professionals who care for newborns at the time of delivery. NRP utilizes a blended learning approach, including online testing, case-based simulations, and hands-on case-based simulation/debriefing that focuses on critical leadership, communication, and teamwork skills.

Intended Audience:

The intended audience for this course includes pediatricians, emergency physicians, nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare professionals who may be involved in the first critical moments of a newborn infant’s life.

Course Work:

1. Once you register for NRP through the Cooper registration site (enrollware.com), you will be entered into the New NRP Learning Platform. 

2. You will receive an email from the no-reply@nrplearningplatform.com site to create an account and be assigned an NRP Global ID. Once this is completed, your registration will then be completed.
