or Call 1-800-REDCROSS

With our Basic Life Support (BLS) classes in Raleigh, you can learn how to safely and effectively respond to medical emergencies in your community. Designed for first responders and medical professionals, our BLS courses give you access to new techniques and information so you can sharpen your skills, provide care to those in need, and help improve patient outcomes.

When you sign up for one of our BLS classes in Raleigh, you'll learn how to provide important care to those in need. Among the topics we cover are CPR and AED usage, relieving obstructed airways for adults, children and infants, as well as first aid best practices, scene assessment, critical thinking, teamwork, communication and more.

At the Red Cross, we offer BLS training in Raleigh that's designed for the way you learn. For those who prefer a traditional classroom approach, we offer in-person courses that give you ample time to ask questions and work through issues with your classmates and your instructor. For those who need more flexibility, we offer our blended Simulation Learning experience, which gives you the opportunity to review the course material online, then join others for an in-person skills session.

To augment your Raleigh 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.

After successfully completing your BLS classes in Raleigh, 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.

If your certifications are nearing their expiration date, or are within 30 days of expiring, you can take an abbreviated course that will allow you to learn the latest information and sharpen your skills, and renew your credentials for two more years.

At the Red Cross, we not only offer BLS classes in Raleigh, 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, and more.

At the American Red Cross we've trained first responders and medical professionals for more than 100 years. And our Raleigh BLS certification courses are an extension of that legacy. Developed with the latest science and best practices in mind, our courses give you the training you need to help in an emergency.
