BLS Certification in Jacksonville
Red Cross BLS classes in Jacksonville 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.
In Jacksonville, our BLS classes deliver the information you need to work efficiently and effectively, and improve patient outcomes. When you sign up for in-person BLS training, you'll spend approximately 4.5 hours learning the latest information and studying the newest techniques. From CPR and AED usage, to problem solving and team dynamics, our classes cover it all in a way that's easy to understand and easy to implement.
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 Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville 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.
In Jacksonville, 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 that will allow you to learn the latest information and sharpen your skills, and renew your credentials for two more years.
