At the Red Cross, BLS classes in Arkansas 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.

In addition, if you choose to take your Arkansas BLS certification classes as a crew or team, we can work with you to include your local protocols during the class, for a custom learning experience.
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 Arkansas. 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 Arkansas, you can gain the skills necessary to help save a life. Find a class in your area, and be prepared to help.
Whether you need full, OSHA-compliant certification or simply want to gain the skills and confidence necessary to help save a life, we offer a variety of Arkansas AED classes that can help you get the training you need. With courses available during the day, evening, and on weekends, and available online, in person, or via our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session, you can earn your Arkansas AED certification, and learn how to provide critical care during sudden cardiac arrest.
Note: If you need OSHA-compliant certification, only in-person and Simulation Learning courses satisfy the requirements for full certification.
