BLS Certification

Proof of Health Care Provider BLS (Basic Life Support) certification is required for the entire course/program. You will scan your card or letter verifying completion of BLS on the Castle Branch website as directed. The only acceptable BLS cards are: American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Healthcare Provider or American Red Cross Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers.

BLS must be current through the entire semester you are entering. This means you may need to renew before it is actually due. This also means that you will need to stay aware of your BLS expiration dates.
