Why choose Illinois Safety for your Chicagoland BLS Provider Resource?

We host several Blended BLS hands-on skills sessions each week. Most BLS classes are hosted at our suburban office in Elmwood Park, just outside of Chicago. We also frequently host public classes at Chamberlain College of Nursing in Addison, IL and Tinley Park, IL along with several local businesses. We’ve recently teamed up with Little Rock Fox Fire Protection District in Plano IL, in Kendall County, to host public BLS Classes for their residents.

Is this class approved by the American Heart Association?

Illinois Safety is an approved American Heart Association Training Center. All of our instructors are firefighters and paramedics that put their real-life experiences to work in the classroom.

Whether you are looking for your original BLS certification or BLS recertification, make sure that you train and accredit yourself under the auspices of the most reputable program. Be sure that you only train with courses that come accredited by the American Heart Association (AHA). Most school and employers will not accept BLS certifications unless they come from the American Heart Association. Don’t be fooled by any companies that offer “online only” BLS classes.
