Frequently Asked Questions

What is BLS for a healthcare provider?

BLS stands for Basic Life Support. By completing a BLS training, you will learn essential life-saving skills that healthcare workers find themselves needing regularly. 

Online BLS certifications differ, so be sure to check with your employer on the skills you need to learn and confirm that the program you’re considering includes those skills trainings. 

For instance, at ProTrainings, you’ll learn the following in your online BLS certification program: 
  • Overcoming the 5 Fears that Prevent Rescue
  • Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease
  • Recognition & Action Steps for Suspected Heart Attack & Stroke
  • Universal Precautions
  • Rescue Breathing for Adult, Child & Infant
  • CPR for Adult, Child & Infant
  • AED for Adult, Child & Infant
  • Use of a Resuscitation Mask
  • Use of a Bag Valve Mask
  • Two Rescuer CPR for Adult, Child & Infant
  • Conscious & Unconscious Choking for Adult, Child & Infant
  • Bleeding Control
  • Shock Management
  • Moving People
  • Special Considerations

Is BLS better than CPR?

The short answer is no. Neither certification is technically “better” than the other. 
Your choice to participate in either a BLS training or CPR training depends entirely on the skills you want to learn and the requirements of your employer. Be sure to check with your employer to clarify the skills they want you to learn and be certified on before choosing the right training program. 
For instance, CPR and BLS training programs both teach the same life-saving skills. However, they are different in that CPR programs are designed for anyone to take, while BLS programs are designed for healthcare professionals who already have a strong foundation of medical knowledge. 
Additionally, the BLS for healthcare providers program teaches a higher level of CPR skills, tools, and procedures that aren’t included in a non-healthcare level CPR class. 
For these reasons, healthcare professionals tend to prefer BLS training and laypersons tend to prefer CPR trainings. 
In your BLS for healthcare professionals program with ProTrainings, you also learn additional skills in each, such as how to handle the Five Fears and respond well in emergency situations. 

How long are the BLS classes?

BLS, CPR, and other life-saving skills courses differ in their structure and content, but you can typically expect a BLS class to last anywhere from 2 to 6 hours. 
Consider that you have the option of completing your BLS classes online, in a blended format, or in a classroom setting.  
At ProTrainings, our online BLS Training for Healthcare Professionals includes a total of 3 hours and 18 minutes of video lessons. 
Blended programs allow you to access the course training materials online while also giving you the opportunity to hone your practical skills with hands-on training over a live video conference with an instructor. The hands-on portion of the program adds about 30 minutes to your total completion time. 
The classroom setting is best for people who tend to learn well by being in the same room as their instructor and who like to ask questions along the way. If you choose the in-class learning method, you can expect the course to take about 4 to 6 hours on average. 
Each modality – online, blended, or classroom learning – comes with different time commitments, so choose the program that is most conducive to your learning style and availability. 

Can healthcare providers take online BLS certification?

Yes! Online BLS certification is an excellent option for healthcare providers with busy schedules. The online format allows you to access your course content from anywhere and learn on your own time. 
Most students who take the online BLS certification program find it extremely convenient and efficient. They’re able to fit their learning into their schedules when they have time and complete their BLS training quickly to meet employer requirements. 
At ProTrainings, our online BLS Certification for Healthcare Professionals program has been submitted to and approved by hundreds of state and national boards and third-party accrediting organizations since 2005 and is accepted by 99% of employers.
