BLS Certification in Honolulu
First responders and healthcare providers deliver life-saving care in times of need. And at the Red Cross, we have more than 100 years of experience in training individuals who will be there when you need them most. When you join one of our Honolulu BLS training classes, you'll not only learn from experience professionals who understand the situations that you'll face every day, but you can rest assured that the information and techniques discussed in class are both proven, and at the forefront of innovation. After all, every course we offer, including our BLS classes, are developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the renowned Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council.
Red Cross BLS classes in Honolulu 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.
At the Red Cross we make earning your BLS certification simple. With in-person BLS training in Honolulu, 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.
After successfully completing your BLS classes in Honolulu, your certification will be valid for two years. However, if you don't use the skills you've learned, they're easy to forget. That's why we've developed a number of BLS refresher materials, including games, quizzes and videos that you can access at any time. This way, you'll be ready to help when your community needs you most.
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 Honolulu 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.
At the American Red Cross, our Honolulu BLS classes are designed specifically for healthcare providers and first responders who are faced with a myriad of situations every day.
