The purpose of the Basic Life Support Challenge course is to give individuals the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge and skill competency outside a formal class setting. Preparing for the testing scenario and final exam is the responsibility of the participant. The challenge course option is available to all individuals with a current Basic Life Support certificate and those who do not hold a certificate. Participants who hold a current Basic Life Support certificate may challenge as often as courses are available and their certificate remains valid. Participants who do not possess a current Basic Life Support certificate may only challenge once. Upon successful completion of the course, learners will receive a 2-year Basic Life Support digital certificate.
