Traditional BLS Classes

Classes are held on a rotating schedule, and it is the responsibility of Kaiser employees to find a class that fits their schedule. The Medical Center can filter the calendar to make finding a class easier.

Please visit our traditional class calendar page for more details.


Online BLS Classes

Online classes allow students to take the course at their own pace, either in the comfort of their home or in the workplace. Once the online class has been completed, the student must register (via our website) for an in-person skills check. There is a separate fee for the class and the skills check. Skills checks are held at Kaiser Permanente Medical Centers and also weekly at our main location in Alexandria.
