BLS Certification in Moline
At the American Red Cross, we understand that schedules can be challenging, and that everyone learns differently. That's why we offer our Moline Basic Life Support certification classes in two formats: in person, which includes a lecture and a skills session, and via Simulation Learning, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. Once successfully completed, both types of courses result in full certification. So regardless of how you learn best – you can get the credentials you need for the job you want.
In our Moline BLS classes, you'll learn how to be the person who can be counted on during times of crisis. Throughout the class you'll gain the skills and knowledge necessary for providing care, like CPR, AED, and first aid, and how to help clear obstructed airways for infants, children and adults, but you'll also learn how to work with compassion, how to ensure that the scene is safe for everyone, how to communicate with your teammates and how to solve problems swiftly. During class you'll work alone, but you'll also work in teams, which will allow you to understand what needs to happen and when – all from a variety of perspectives. Of course, you'll have ample time to ask questions and perfect your skills – so you can leave class knowing that you can capably, confidently help when it's needed most.
