Lakeland Community College will not be holding any Basic Life Support (BLS) classes through the summer. The American Heart Association has issued some guidelines for those who already hold BLS cards that are expiring, extending the expiration date by 60 days. Click here for more information. For those who have not taken BLS yet, the Mentor Public Education Department may be able to help. They offer the full BLS classes and the "skills only" classes as well (their "skills-only" classes are for experienced providers only - those who have taken the online class and have previously held a BLS card). Call (440) 974-5768 or go to their website here. The University Hospitals EMS Training & Disaster Preparedness Institute also offers classes at UH locations.
