Basic Life Support (BLS) is one of those vital skills that can make a difference in a crisis and potentially save a life. With our BLS Certification course at OC Safety, you will be trained on how to support breathing and circulation for a person who has fallen unconscious, preserving their life until professional medical assistance arrives. Becoming certified in BLS will allow you to protect your family, loved ones, or even strangers from being caught off guard by an unforeseen accident or health issue.
