Your Course Experience

BLS is required for most day to day jobs by most major companies. Per State Law and Federal Law, most companies, churches, and schools with a population bigger than 5-10 employees are required to have an AED on premise. Usually most companies require that their employees have their BLS certificate. This can range from construction companies, medical clinics, schools, MD programs, PA programs, NP programs, nursing programs, hospital based jobs and schools.
