Basic Life Support (formerly Healthcare Provider) is catered to first responders and pre-hospital care professionals in the medical industry:

Basic life support (BLS) is the recognition of and initial intervention or treatment given by pre-hospital or in-facility responders to a patient suffering from cardiac arrest or respiratory arrest:

In-facility: Any environment within a clinical (including hospital) setting.
Pre-hospital: Any environment outside of a clinical (including hospital) setting.
Responder: Any individual with the professional responsibility to provide care to a patient in either a pre-hospital or an in-facility setting.

Your school and / or employer should specifically request you to take Basic Life Support because it is generally reserved for first responders and pre-hospital care personnel.

Basic Life Support will teach students the fundamentals of respiratory and cardiac arrest, and will focus more on care as opposed to prevention. In addition, oxygen therapy and airway management can also be taught as an add-on should your educational institution and/or employer specifically request these additional subjects.
