The official American Heart Association© BLS for the Healthcare Provider CPR eLearning class is taught in two parts and is recommended for renewing or initial BLS students. Be sure to give yourself enough time to finish the eLearning course, since you must bring in your eLearning certificate on the day of your skills testing.
Warning about the BLS eLearning Course
Some UCSF staff have mentioned that they prefer the regular classroom course instead of the eLearning courses. If you are not accustomed to computer simulations and online learning, you would probably prefer the regular BLS classroom course. You cannot switch from the BLS eLearning course to the regular classroom course after you register. If you decide to switch, you would have to pay for the class yourself. You can go back to view the regular BLS Classroom courses.
