Earn your BLS certification from the American Red Cross. Whether you work in the medical industry, are in school to become a nurse or physician, or are an EMT, police officer, or firefighter, when you get BLS certified you can show your employer that you have the training you need to improve patient outcomes.
Designed and taught by experts, Red Cross BLS certification courses have been developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council – a panel of nationally recognized experts from a wide range of scientific, medical and academic disciplines – ensuring that the information provided meets or exceeds local, state and/or national standards.
And with in-person training, as well as our best-in-class blended learning, you can gain the skills you need to get BLS certified in the way that suits you best.
If your American Red Cross BLS certification is about to expire (or has expired and you're within 30 days of its expiration), you can enroll in an abbreviated BLS review course and get recertified for two more years. If your certification expired more than 30 days prior to your review course, you'll have to complete the full BLS certification course in order to regain your certification.
