ICT Fire & Rescue is accredited by the American Heart Association (AHA) as professional trainers of Basic Life Support (BLS) as well as Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). BLS is the foundation for saving lives after cardiac arrest.
The AHA’s BLS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. Our instructors teach
both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both in-facility and prehospital settings. Basic Life Support training and certification are commonly required of Health Care professionals and other working professionals whose jobs or volunteer positions place them at risk for needing to provide CPR to a co-worker or visitor. The act of BLS certification is to verify that a person has been trained in CPR and has demonstrated a required level of competency regarding the core skills involved in providing CPR care to a person in cardiac arrest. In the United States, the BLS certification does not give permission to provide care nor does it imply the obligation to act during a crisis as long as the rescue act is voluntary. The CPR certification is simply a proof that the person has indeed been trained in CPR and has demonstrated minimum competency during this course according to the latest ECC/ILCOR and American Heart Association recommendations and guidelines.
ICT Fire & Rescue adopts uniform and consistent training and testing in online BLS certification through a blended BLS format.
