BLS Certification in San Jose
Red Cross BLS classes in San Jose 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.
With in-person BLS training in San Jose, as well as our Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with in-person skills sessions, you can find a class that works with your schedule and your learning style. In addition, we offer customizable BLS training for organizations that can incorporate local protocols – so your team can train the way they respond.
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 Jose 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 San Jose that will allow you to learn the latest information and sharpen your skills – and renew your credentials for two more years.
