BLS Certification in Ohio

or Call 1-800-REDCROSS

The American Red Cross offers BLS training in Ohio for new learners and experienced learners looking for remediation, as well as review courses for those who already hold a current healthcare provider-level CPR/AED certification. In all cases these classes take approximately 2.5 to 4.5 hours to complete. In addition, we offer a Challenge component for those seeking certification but do not want to attend a full course. This option allows participants to prepare on their own before completing the required written exam and skills assessment in front of a certified instructor.

As a BLS practitioner it's your job to be prepared to respond quickly, and appropriately. In order to do so, you'll need to perform some steps during every incident, and others only an as-needed basis. In order to help keep your memory and your skills fresh after completing your BLS classes in Ohio, we've outlined some high-level steps that apply to most scenarios, and created reference materials that you can use to study the steps required for specific situations.

The Red Cross delivers BLS training in Ohio that meets all the requirements for certification. Available in a traditional classroom setting or via our blended Simulation Learning, which combines online coursework with in-person skills sessions, all of our BLS classes are built around standard scientific learning objectives and the latest medical information and techniques.

In addition to offering BLS training in Ohio for healthcare providers and first responders, we also offer classes to help you become a certified Red Cross BLS instructor.

All of our BLS classes in Ohio, and across the country, use the Red Cross BLS Handbook. This training resource allows you to study real-life situations, which may include complicated scenarios where multiple people may need care, and multiple symptoms may require treatment. This way, you can practice prioritizing care even before treating your first patient. In addition to the handbook, we offer a wide range of online materials that you can access before, during, and after your class, and continue your education long after earning your certification.
