The American Red Cross offers continuing education for emergency medical technicians (EMTs). Delivered through our Basic Life Support (BLS) courses for Healthcare Providers, our training opportunities allow EMTs to stay current with their CPR, AED and other basic life support skills for adults, children and infants. In addition, when EMTs from the same facility take Red Cross classes together, they'll not only improve their skills individually, but they'll work together in ways that will help them foster relationships and drive better patient outcomes. Red Cross EMT courses are consistent with AHA Guidelines for CPR/ECC. Participants will receive a free, two-year digital "Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers" certificate upon course completion. Courses are delivered nationwide by our expert instructors, and offer learners the flexibility to complete part of their training online through our dynamic Simulation Learning.
Because techniques and best practices change, and skills can easily be forgotten when they're not used regularly, we offer a range of BLS courses for healthcare professionals. Designed specifically for those who serve the public, these courses cover everything from CPR and AED usage to first aid. In addition, they foster teamwork and professionalism when responding to a crisis. For information on the classes available in your area, visit http://www.redcross.org/courses/index.jsp.
