For people working in the medical field, Basic Life Support (BLS) and CPR training are highly beneficial skill sets to have in your toolbox. In many cases, including individuals working in some non-medical professions such as police officers, fire fighters, life guards and school bus drivers, proper BLS and CPR certifications are required. Big Apple Training, New York’s leader in certified nursing assistant classes and healthcare training, offers an innovative class structure designed to help students receive the BLS/CPR certification needed on a schedule that works for them.
Upon completing this three-part training program, you’ll be equipped to correctly identify life-threatening situations and be given the tools needed to react effectively. You’ll learn how to prevent choking safely, provide CPR, and respond to a variety of emergencies. After finishing the three-step program, you will be presented with the American Heart Association BLS card, which is valid for two years.
Big Apple Training provides basic knowledge with an interactive, self-guided online course, eliminating the wait for regular classes and working around your own schedule. The second segment of the program involves hands-on skills with practice manikins using state-of-the-art technology, which you can schedule at your convenience. The final step of the training, the skills test, will also be conducted on your schedule, with your choice of testing methods.
