We offer variations of BLS/CPR training including Hands-Only CPR, American Heart Association (AHA) BLS for Health Care Providers (with First Aid) and AHA Heartsaver® CPR/AED/First Aid classes.
To register for your BLS/CPR course, or get information on class offerings, attendance process and cost, call Carilion Direct at 540-266-6000 or 800-422-8482.
As part of the registration fee, you will receive a BLS/CPR course manual through postal mail. This book contains useful study materials that should be reviewed prior to attending class. Use these tips to prepare for class:
- BLS/CPR courses do not require a pretest or prior certification.
- All classes start promptly on time, per AHA guidelines. Students who arrive late will be asked to reschedule.
Sudden cardiac arrest happens to anyone, anywhere, and at any time during life. Sudden cardiac arrest affects 350,000 people outside of the hospital setting every year. Current survival from sudden cardiac arrest is less than 10%. Preparation may be the difference between life and death for your neighbor, colleague, or loved one. The two most important interventions are bystanders providing quality chest compressions and the early use of an AED.
