COVID-19 Life Support Training Update

Posted on

BLUF – The purpose of this memorandum is to update policy guidance within the Military Health System for American Red Cross life support training (First Aid/cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)/automated external defibrillator (AED), Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Life Support (ALS), and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)). As military medical treatment facilities (MTFs) transition to normal operations, no further extensions for the above life support certifications will be granted after June 30, 2020. Personnel whose certifications expired between March and June 2020 have up to 120 days to get recertified. This also applies to providers who have American Heart Association cards.

Here’s the full memo.
