About the Course

Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification and Recertification at WISER using the Laerdal HeartCode System

Course Features:

  • Self-paced, self-directed learning
  • Accessible 24/7 (Part I - didactic)
  • Incorporates the guidelines developed by the American Heart Association
  • Enables personalized skill practice
  • Provides real-time participant feedback to quickly enhance skills
  • Official American Heart Association BLS Certification Card issued at time of successful course completion

Considerations:

  • This is not a traditional classroom course
  • This is an instructorless certification program
  • There are two parts to the certification program:
    • Part I: The didactic component requires a computer with an Internet connection. The participant must complete the computer-based learning, including scenarios and written examination. This component takes an estimated 45 to 60 minutes to complete. Each participant MUST print the certificate indicating successful completion of Part I. Contact WISER at 412-648-6073 to schedule an appointment to complete the skills component. Appointments will be scheduled Monday through Friday 8:00am to 3:00pm. The printed certificate MUST be brought to WISER to complete Part II.

      Part II: The skills portion is required to be performed independently at WISER. Each participant will be assigned to a simulator-equipped manikin. The skills component can be completed on average within one hour.

Cost:

  • $200
