BLS Resources

The DC COA Career Development and Education Committee has identified BLS resources for officers to maintain BLS certification. Please see below for a list of resources.

To maintain basic readiness, PHS officers are required to have current training in Basic Life Support (BLS) at the level of healthcare provider. Officers must complete and maintain currency in one of the following basic life support (BLS) training classes: American Heart Association (AHA) Basic Life Support for health care providers or another basic life support training that is equivalent to an AHA accredited course which is reviewed and approved by the Surgeon General.
