Basic Life Support (BLS) Skills Session

For those who seek BLS (basic life support) certification through the American Heart Association (AHA) and want an alternative to the classroom course, RGV CPR offers the BLS skills session which is the final part of a 3-part process to certification. Here's how it works:

RGV CPR offers the American Heart Association (AHA) HeartCode® BLS course which is an online/classroom blended format. 


Here's how it works:

  1. Purchase and complete your HeartCode® BLS from the American Heart Association

  2. Once you have successfully completed your HeartCode® BLS online course, contact schedule your BLS Provider skills session (below).

  3. Attend your skills session (be sure to bring your AHA HeartCode® BLS online course completion certificate)

  4. Receive your AHA BLS Provider certification card valid for 2 years.

What to Expect at Your Skills Session Appointment


  • You will be asked to present your HeartCode® BLS certificate of completion.

  • You will practice the following skills for adult and infant BLS: Chest compressions, pocket-mask ventilations, bag-mask ventilations, and AED use.

  • Practice the skills in sequence as a single rescuer and then as part of a 2-rescuer team.

  • You will be tested on your skills using the skills testing checklists below.  

  • Recieve your AHA BLS certification card valid for 2 years.

HeartCode® BLS Certificate Verification


Students must print and bring certification of completion of the HeartCode® BLS online course for verification by the instructor.  We use the following websites to verify certificate authenticity:



If you did not purchase the BLS online portion of the course directly from RGV CPR or the AHA, you will need to verify your certificate number at the above sites before scheduling your skills session with us. Some hospitals that offer the HeartCode® BLS online course use certificate numbers that we can not verify.
