Health System CPR Training Guidelines

Health System CPR Training  Guidelines

The CPR Training Guidelines are taken directly from the Medical Center 0265 policy on emergency training 

New Hires

  • New Hires may be required, (depending on their job description) to provide a copy of their AHA BLS certification to Human Resources when hired and prior to orientation.
  • The new employee, if required, must have their BLS/CPR prior to hire date/orientation. If the new hire does not have their BLS/CPR they will need to contact their HR representative to make sure it is part of their new hire onboarding process.
  • Need a skills session after finishing your online BLS course then click here.


Existing Employees

  • Existing Non-Physician direct patient care providers of the UVA Medical Center must be compliant policy 0265 requirements.
  • If required to have BLS/CPR certification your department Manager/Net Learning Administrator can assign you the online course, (part 1). If you are having difficulties please contact the Life Support Learning Center Staff.
  • Please contact us by clicking here if you have not been assigned the online course in Net Learning and you feel you are required to have BLS/CPR.
