BLS Recertification Before Employment

Posted by megan3 @megan3, Aug 26, 2019

Greetings! My current BLS for healthcare providers expires within three months of my start date, so I am arranging to be re-certified before I start. The information package lists a couple of approved organizations, including American Heart Association (Title: BLS for Healthcare Providers or BLS Provider). Does anyone know if the HeartCode BLS online & in-person course through AHA qualifies? It says it is designed for healthcare providers and offers the "AHA BLS Provider Course Completion Card," which is good for two years. I think it would be acceptable, but I just wanted to make sure before I signed up.

Hi Megan,

My advice would be to ask the same question of your supervisor/department once you start. They will know exactly what qualifies to get that certification accomplished.
