Because your certification is only valid for two years, Florida BLS training isn't a one-time process. In order to maintain your credentials, certificate holders who are nearing the end of their certification period, or those whose certifications are within 30 days of expiring, must take a BLS renewal course to avoid a lapse in certification. Once successfully completed your BLS certification will be extended by two more years. The Red Cross offers online and in-person renewal courses so you can choose the right class for the way you learn.
