  • Learning strategies to support rapid recognition of and effective response to cardiovascular emergencies
  • Basic Life Support (BLS) is required prior to completion of your PALS course and is an optional add-on in our Vancouver courses. We offer BLS concurrently with every PALS Provider course outside Vancouver as part of the course tuition.
