After successfully completing your BLS classes in Riverside, your certification will be valid for two years. However, if you don't use the skills you've learned, they're easy to forget. That's why we've developed a number of BLS refresher materials, including games, quizzes and videos that you can access at any time. This way, you'll be ready to help when your community needs you most.

In Riverside, our BLS classes deliver the information you need to work efficiently and effectively, and improve patient outcomes. When you sign up for in-person BLS training, you'll spend approximately 4.5 hours learning the latest information and studying the newest techniques. From CPR and AED usage, to problem solving and team dynamics, our classes cover it all in a way that's easy to understand and easy to implement.

Designed for those who prefer to study at their own pace, our innovative Simulation Learning experience blends online coursework with in-person skills sessions, so you can learn your way. Featuring all of the same information as our in-person Riverside BLS classes, our Simulation Learning course makes it easy to learn the latest in CPR and AED usage, problem solving and team dynamics. And with our in-person skills sessions, you'll be able to demonstrate your skills to a trained instructor and, upon successful completion, earn full certification.
