BLS - Provider Course

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, sorry to bother you guys again.

Does anyone here know how we can complete the required BLS training? Our certifications are due by August 3, but it seems that the Heart&Stroke Foundation does not provide an online course...

Another accepted applicant posted about this. According to them, Chantal said they may revise the date and are discussing it internally. I'm not too worried about it, given there's still some time. Same with the police checks. Some cities are doing them online, while others are closed.

Not sure if I'm reading this right... But as new BLS provider (not renewal), are we allowed to attend the class then? :mellow: In any case, I just registered for one in June.

Congrats on the acceptance! Did you sign up for the blended course or the regular BLS provider?

Oh lol never mind. I signed up for the regular because the blended is only offered in limited places. But while I could sign up on the BLS system, I talked to the instructor and they informed me that all classes are closed to public atm and they'll only make exception if you REALLY need it.

Ah makes sense! In that guess maybe don't bother signing up yet? I'm sure Chantal will update us with a new deadline! Thanks for getting back to me.

Haha np! I mean even if they don't change the deadline, you'll probs be able to go in by July 30 for example and say you really need the certification or med school will reject you. I think that warrants an "urgent" case.

Has anyone tried signing up for a class in Toronto or the GTA? 

Hey I tried doing that at Sunnybrook. Their classes are full up until August but all have been cancelled up to mid-June. Situations in London are pretty similar too. I'm not exactly sure what to do if the deadline for BLS isn't extended tbh. :confused:

For anyone outisde of Ontario - some courses are still being offered, it might be worth contacting local providers. I was able to sign up for a course in July, and was told that courses have not been cancelled during COVID-19 at any point

Are we allowed to sign up for the blended? If so, is it the blended 120? 

I was told to complete the Interim course. They’re offering the first part online and then you can complete the in-person portion when they open!

edit: Not sure what the difference is between the interim and blended120 though..

Is BLS interim the same thing as BLS blended?

Hi guys - when sending in your deposit, was it an e-transfer or paying via payee (like paying bills)? I can't find University of Ottawa as an account name

I sent it in through the paying bills and I think I paid through University of Ottawa - TUITION.

I would much rather take the interim if allowed. :/ the blended is offered in really limited places...

What is the difference? I'm getting confused with these options lol 

Honestly IDEK lol. It looks like the format is slightly different since the interim course has the actual instructor being there online with you. It's also said to be meant for people who will actually be taking care of patients during covid.

So has anyone successfully signed up for a BLS course yet?

I asked the risk management nurse and they  replied that we can take the BLS interim part 1 online and follow that with the in person component once they open again even if that's past the deadline. I registered for an interim course yesterday but haven't heard anything from the instructor yet.
