Because your certification is only valid for two years, Oregon BLS training isn't a one-time process. In order to maintain your credentials, certificate holders who are nearing the end of their certification period, or those whose certifications are within 30 days of expiring, must take a BLS renewal course to avoid a lapse in certification. Once successfully completed your BLS certification will be extended by two more years.
Our Oregon BLS certification courses allow healthcare and public safety professionals to provide life-saving care to those in need.

All of our BLS courses for healthcare providers are modular and flexible, and can be tailored to suit your department's protocols.
