Dear BLS Course Student:

Welcome to the HeartCode® BLS Course. This course has 2 components: an online portion and an instructor-led classroom portion. You must complete the online portion first.

You will be provided access to line portion of the course by using a unique URL License after you sign up for the course.

Important: You must print the certificate of completion at the end of the online portion. You will need to give this to your instructor when you attend the classroom portion.
