Basic Life Support

The TTUHSC Simulation Program offers Basic Life Support in two formats, classroom and eLearning (online). BLS is also offered in Abilene, Amarillo, Lubbock, Mansfield, and Odessa TTUHSC Campuses.

American Heart Association Basic Life Support is for current or future healthcare providers. Prior to the release of the 2015 AHA Guidelines, the Basic Life Support Course was known as Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers.

If you are not a current healthcare provider and do not have plans of pursuing a career in healthcare, it is recommended you take the HeartSaver CPR AED course.

Classroom Course Prerequisites:

  • A BLS Provider manual is required for every course.
  • Participants are required to read the manual prior to the course
  • Payment

Manuals may be purchased from the Training Center at time of registration or provided by an employer. The purpose of the manual is to serve as a resource before, during, and after each course. Some retailers also offer the manual as an e-book.

Please make payment arrangements prior to your course date. We accept checks made out to TTUHSC and we can also take a Visa or MasterCard in person or over the phone. We also offer billing options for businesses.

eLearning (online)

The eLearning course for BLS is the same curriculum offered in the classroom setting. The eLearning Course is self-paced and allows participants the flexibility to complete the course on their own time, in as many sessions as needed. As such, eLearning is recommended when classroom courses are not available.

The eLearning course consists of two parts. Part 1 is the self-paced online course. Part 2 is the skills testing which must be completed in person at the Training Center.

We understand that eLearning may not suit everyone’s learning style. We also don’t recommend it for the first time taking the course. Please call to enroll in eLearning.
