BLS Certification in Wilmington
When you earn your Basic Life Support certification in Wilmington from the American Red Cross, you'll get a two-year certification that can help you begin your career as a first responder or medical professional. All of our courses include the latest proven science and techniques, and will help you develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that can help drive better patient outcomes. Both our in-person and our blended Simulation Learning courses are developed under the guidance of the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, are consistent with AHA Guidelines for CPR/ECC, and cover breathing and cardiac emergencies, including CPR, AED, and obstructed airways for adult, child, and infant patients. To find the class that's right for you, check our newest course schedule – and begin your career with us.
In Wilmington, BLS certification classes from the American Red Cross are available in two formats: in person, and via our blended Simulation Learning experience. In-person classes are held in a traditional classroom setting – with an instructor and classmates, and the hands-on skills session immediately follows. Simulation Learning, however, allows you to receive the same "lecture" material, but in an online environment – so you can spend time with the information and synthesize it in your own way. Once complete, you can schedule your in-person skills session, where you'll learn proper techniques and have the opportunity to prove your skills to a licensed instructor. After successfully completing both sections of the course, you'll receive full certification. For more information or to book your BLS class, check our newest schedule.

This way, everyone will get the training they need, and they can work together – building trust and relationships throughout class. Additionally, we can customize your program to fit your specific needs, include your local protocols and cover your organization's unique guidelines and principles.

In Wilmington, your Basic Life Support certification will be valid for two years. However, rather than completing another full course to maintain your certification, you can simply sign up for an abbreviated BLS recertification class. These classes are designed for those whose credentials are still valid (or within 30 days of expiring), and allow you to avoid a lapse in certification so you can stay certified and stay on the job.
