logo Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers RENEWAL (Professional-level CPR)


The NJ DHSS-OEMS allows EMT-Bs to use this professional-level CPR certification  for 2 elective CEUs  toward recertification.  The EMT must keep track of this credit as it is not automatically registered in their learming management system (LMS).


This course is a refresher of basic life support adhering to the 2010 AHA Guidelines for Emergency Cardiovascular Care which includes:

Students must pass both a skills and written test to complete the course and receive a completion card good for two years.  There are two methods for obtaining BLS for Healthcare Providers renewal:

Classroom-Based Renewal

Since the updated renewal and new initial classes are approximately the same length, we refer students who prefer a classroom-based refresher and renewal to the BLS for Healthcare Providers course.

Internet-Based Renewal With In-Person Skills Test

Students must have a valid professional-level CPR card (as described in our prerequisites below).

First, purchase and complete the AHA-sponsored Internet-based training module and print the official Part 1 certificate.  Next, register with both your current CPR card and the Part 1 certificate of completion for a skills validation session (Part 2) on the dates listed.  After you have completed both sections of the process, you will be issued an American Heart Association BLS for Healthcare Providers card.  There is no extension or grace period by starting this process. Students must submit the official AHA Part 1 certificate as proof they completed the on-line renewal no more than 60 days prior to their skill session.

The skills validation must be completed before the expiration date on your CPR card or 60 days from completion of the on-line coursework, whichever comes first.  Candidates must come prepared and should take no more than 15 minutes for their skill session. Students who require significant remediation will be directed to repeat a regular course.
