At the American Red Cross, our Tallahassee BLS classes are designed specifically for healthcare providers and first responders who are faced with a myriad of situations every day. To help prepare you to respond appropriately, and in a way that offers the best possible patient outcomes, our courses cover a wide range of topics, including CPR, First Aid, and AED usage, as well as scene safety and assessment, critical thinking, problem solving, communication and teamwork, the emergency medical services system, legal considerations, and more.
After successfully completing your BLS classes in Tallahassee, 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.
Although you hope that no one ever needs your services, as a BLS practitioner it's your job to be prepared to respond quickly, and appropriately. In order to do so, you must maintain your skills long after your Tallahassee BLS training has ended. In order to help you stay ready to respond, we've outlined some high-level steps that apply to most scenarios, and offer a wide range of reference materials that you can use to remind yourself of the steps required during specific situations.
At the Red Cross, we not only offer BLS classes in Tallahassee, but we make it possible for you to become a trainer, and proctor certifications for members of your own organization and your community. To help you become a Red Cross trainer, we will recognize your current instructor certifications and offer free instructor bridging. Along with our portfolio of BLS classes, we are a leading provider of OSHA-compliant health and safety training, offering a wide range of training programs to our partners, including First Aid/CPR/AED, Wilderness and Remote First Aid, Babysitting, Lifeguarding, and more.
To augment your Tallahassee BLS training experience, we've developed step-by-step guides and a BLS Handbook that you can use during class and long after your training has ended. In our handbook we've outlined emergency procedures in detail, and in a way that reflects real-life scenarios. This way, you can learn how, or remember how, to provide the best possible care to those in need.
