BLS Blended Renewal


BLS Blended Renewal is the fundamental renewal course for healthcare professionals and emergency medical providers, combining self-paced online learning and in-person instructor-led skills training. The course covers the same curriculum and teaches the same skills as the conventional instructor-led course, including single- and multi-rescuer basic life support skills with a focus on high-quality CPR and team dynamics in a wide variety of prehospital and in-facility settings.


BLS is a prerequisite for advanced resuscitation courses and many healthcare-related training programs. A current completion card is often required for employment in the healthcare field.


The BLS Blended Renewal course assumes comprehensive awareness, knowledge, and skill proficiency in Heart & Stroke BLS concepts. This fast-paced course is for students who are confident in their BLS skills, use their skills regularly, require limited practice and who already possess a valid Heart & Stroke BLS certificate to renew their credentials for another year. Students have access to the online environment for 1 year.


The Benefits of Blended Learning

  • Convenient and flexible – learn most of the curriculum from anywhere, with less time spent in the classroom and less time away from work or home.
  • Self-pacing – learn at your own pace. Start, stop and repeat any part of the program until you have mastered the core concepts.
  • Achieve higher learning outcomes – come better prepared for in-person training having already mastered the theoretical concepts online.
  • Adaptable – caters to a wide variety of different learning styles and ability levels.
