Heartsaver vs. BLS Courses – What’s the difference?

Heartsaver courses are designed for individuals without prior medical experience or training. For most applications, Heartsaver courses are the appropriate choice for the general public.

BLS courses are designed for healthcare professionals and related fields. These courses use medical terminology and assume that the students has basic medical knowledge. If this course is for employment purposes, be sure to check with your employer to determine which course is preferred.
