BLS for Prehospital Providers

Updated:Jul 31,2014


Basic Life Support for Prehospital Providers (BLS PHP) is the first of its kind in the AHA’s lifesaving training portfolio, designed specifically to meet the needs of the EMS market.

BLS PHP consists of both online and classroom components, leveraging the “flipping the classroom” trend. A combination of online and in-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 in the field.

While tailored for prehospital providers, this course covers the same objectives as BLS for Healthcare Providers, and successful completion results in a BLS for Healthcare Providers course completion card.
