Need a BLS or ACLS Class in the Fenton area?

If you’re a healthcare provider who needs to get certified in the American Heart Association courses BLS and ACLS in the Fenton area, then CPR St. Louis is the place to Register.

We have more “Five Star Google Reviews” than any other company in the entire St. Louis city or county areas. We have been in business for ten years and counting.

Nurses, doctors, dentists, and any healthcare provider who is employed must be at least BLS certified. If you are a surgeon, critical care nurse or other emergency technician then you will also need an ACLS certification. In addition, all nursing students, medical students and allied health students need a BLS card in order to begin rotations at hospitals.

Employers, such as doctor’s offices, hospitals and care centers in the Fenton area must be certified with the American Heart Association. Other cards provided by other establishments are not accepted. The AHA requires that all students have a hands-on experience as part of the training process.

What is the difference between CPR and BLS? Often CPR and BLS is confused. BLS, or basic life support, is the CPR/AED course that is required by healthcare providers and anyone in the medical and allied health field. CPR is a part of the BLS class. The confusion comes for those who are not healthcare related, such as life guards, teachers, and trainers. In this case, the correct CPR course for these professions is known as HeartSaver CPR. So anyone who needs CPR that is not healthcare related would take the HeartSaver course provided by the American Heart Association. And as mentioned earlier, ACLS is more advanced for those professionals dealing with emergency situations such as in trauma or surgery areas.

There are either all in-person, hands-on classes for BLS and ACLS, or there is also a blended option where part of the course is completed online. However, all courses do require an in-person skills check.

Caution: There are many companies online that offer 100% online certifications, however they are NOT the AHA. And this card will not be accepted by your employer or school. Always make sure that you will be receiving an official AHA card.

So again, if you are looking for an official AHA certification in the Fenton area you can register here online. We not only offer Basic Life Support CPR for healthcare providers and Advanced Cardiac Life Support, but also Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) classes.

Contact us with any questions, as well here online.

Best of luck!!
