The American Heart Association sets the bar for best practice–focused CPR training The BLS for Prehospital Providers (BLS PHP) program combines online instruction and in-person classroom training into a single course that leverages current educational trends. Real-world team CPR scenarios show the role individuals play in emergency response situations.

This webinar will introduce the BLS PHP course and its components. A combination of online and classroom training improves the learning experience and provides greater flexibility for students and instructors, while still delivering hands-on instruction that enhances performance and improves outcomes. This course is scenario based, and allows for discussion of local protocols and how they affect your approach to resuscitation and implementing high-quality team CPR.
