BLS Certification in San Diego
With our Basic Life Support (BLS) classes in San Diego, you can learn how to safely and effectively respond to medical emergencies in your community. Designed for first responders and medical professionals, our BLS courses give you access to new techniques and information – so you can sharpen your skills, provide care to those in need, and help 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 San Diego 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.
Although you hope that no one ever needs your services, as a BLS practitioner it's your job to be prepared to respond quickly, and appropriately. In order to do so, you must maintain your skills long after your San Diego BLS training has ended. In order to help you stay ready to respond, we've outlined some high-level steps that apply to most scenarios, and offer a wide range of reference materials that you can use to remind yourself of the steps required during specific situations.
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 San Diego 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 San Diego 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 emergencies.
