BLS Certification in Glendale
First responders and healthcare providers deliver life-saving care in times of need. And at the Red Cross, we have more than 100 years of experience in training individuals who will be there when you need them most. When you join one of our Glendale BLS training classes, you'll not only learn from experience professionals who understand the situations that you'll face every day, but you can rest assured that the information and techniques discussed in class are both proven, and at the forefront of innovation.
Red Cross BLS classes in Glendale make it possible to get certified in as little as 4.5 hours. However, if you choose to work with the Red Cross to develop a group training session that also incorporates your local protocols, your time in class may be extended. All classes use real-life emergency scenarios to help you learn how to perform CPR, use an AED, and relieve obstructed airways for adults, children and infants. In addition, our classes will help you, and your team, develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that can help you improve patient outcomes.
Designed for those who prefer to study at their own pace, our innovative Simulation Learning experience blends online coursework with in-person skills sessions, so you can learn your way. Featuring all of the same information as our in-person Glendale BLS classes, our Simulation Learning course makes it easy to learn the latest in CPR and AED usage, problem solving and team dynamics. And with our in-person skills sessions, you'll be able to demonstrate your skills to a trained instructor and, upon successful completion, earn full certification.
BLS certifications are valid for two years. If your certifications are nearing their expiration date, or are within 30 days of expiring, you can take an abbreviated course in Glendale that will allow you to learn the latest information and sharpen your skills – and renew your credentials for two more years.
At the American Red Cross we've trained first responders and medical professionals for more than 100 years. And our Glendale BLS certification courses are an extension of that legacy. Developed with the latest science and best practices in mind, our courses give you the training you need to help during times of crisis.
