BLS Certification in Alexandria

Red Cross BLS classes in Alexandria make it possible to get certified in as little as 4.5 hours. However, if you choose to work with the Red Cross to develop a group training session that also incorporates your local protocols, your time in class may be extended. All classes use real-life emergency scenarios to help you learn how to perform CPR, use an AED, and relieve obstructed airways for adults, children and infants. In addition, our classes will help you, and your team, develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that can help you improve patient outcomes.
