Basic Life Support (BLS) for Health Care Professionals Formerly known as Health Care Provider (HCP) this Red Cross approved level of CPR/AED Training is a 2-day training designed specifically for the health care professionals looking to renew their current certification or receive their certification for the first time. How is this different from the Standard First Aid with CPR/AED Level C also offered by Primary Care First Aid and Bowen College? Standard First Aid with CPR/AED Level C certification is good for 3-years with a 1-day renewal taken every 3-years
Basic Life Support (BLS) for Health Care Professionals certification is good for 1-year and renewal is taken annually. The BLS certification has an additional hour of training to cover topics, not in the Standard Level C certification.Graduates of Bowen College who desire to work as professionals in their field are expected to have the Standard First Aid with CPR/AED Level C as a minimum requirement to qualify for certification with the Canadian Examining Board of Health Care Practitioners (CEBHCP). For those who are professionals in an additional field, such as, Naturopathy, Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Medicine, Osteopaths, etc. you may be required by your designation to keep a Health Care Professional Level of training for FirstAid. In this case, you would need to attend the BLS level of training with an additional training component which is good for 1-year.
