Onsite Basic Life Support (BLS) Training Classes for Dental and Medical

Onsite AHA Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification Classes

Scheduling your team to complete the required biennial BLS (Basic Life Support) training class can be a chore. Work schedules and home life collide, and some of your staff are most likely well beyond their BLS expiration date.

Northwest Response (NWR) of Gig Harbor, Washington brings the BLS class to you.

NWR offers the American Heart Association (AHA) Basic Life Support (BLS) class onsite in all of Western Washington. We schedule around your busy patient schedule to fulfill your legal BLS obligation in one session.
And, yes; we do Saturday classes!

Most BLS classes are held in major Metropolitan cities, and if you are located in the West Sound; a trip to a BLS class training center in Seattle or Tacoma may involve a full day trip.
