At the Red Cross, BLS classes in Alaska are available to healthcare workers and public safety professionals. These classes can be taken in two ways: In person or via our blended Simulation Learning. In person BLS training takes place entirely in person, with classmates and an instructor. This type of class provides you with ample time to explore topics, ask questions and learn all of the care techniques addressed in class. For those who choose Simulation Learning, the same information will be taught in an online environment, but interactive discussion won't be possible. Once the "lecture" portion of the class is complete, you'll join an in-person skill session where you'll demonstrate your BLS skills to a certified instructor. Both courses, once complete, result in full certification.

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) seem to be virtually everywhere – in schools and offices, airports, sports stadiums, boutiques and malls. But do you know how and when to use one? If the answer is no (or even if it's maybe), then it's time to sign up for AED classes in Alaska. After all, the average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8 to 12 minutes – and for each minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest reduces by approximately 10%. Fortunately, with CPR/AED training in Alaska, you can gain the skills necessary to help save a life. Find a class in your area, and be prepared to help.
