The Basic Life Support Provider course covers adult and pediatric CPR, the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), and the relief of a foreign-body airway obstruction. This course also includes instruction on two-rescuer scenarios and bag-valve-mask device.

These healthcare providers may include (but are not limited to): physicians, nurses, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, respiratory therapists, physical and occupational therapists, physician assistants, residents or fellows, medical or nursing assistants or students in training, aides, and other allied health personnel.
The course is a prerequisite for American Heart Association courses such as Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), and BLS instructor courses. It is also a prerequisite for entrance into the Health Sciences programs at TMCC, as well as entrance into any clinical setting.
