• BLS Certification in Kentucky

    In Kentucky, BLS certification classes are taught by local professionals, and include only proven, vetted procedures. All of our programs are based on the latest science, standards and regulations, and are overseen by the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council – a panel of nationally recognized experts from scientific, medical, and academic disciplines. With the Council's guidance, we're able to ensure that our BLS trainings align with the latest evidence-based knowledge in science and medicine, and adhere to relevant industry guidelines.

    At the Red Cross, we know that everyone learns differently – which is why we offer BLS classes in Kentucky in both an in-person, and blended format. The in-person format delivers information in a traditional classroom setting and allows students to interact with each other, as well as the instructor. Meanwhile, the blended Simulation Learning format gives students the opportunity to enjoy online instruction – so they can attend class at their leisure, and spend time studying the information on their schedule. Both courses culminate in an in-person skills session, which allows students to show their skills to a certified instructor and receive full certification upon passing the skills exam.

All of our BLS trainings in Kentucky are taught by experts in the field, and include all standard scientific learning objectives necessary in professional resuscitation courses. In addition, our classes help students develop critical thinking and teamwork skills, and allow time to work on reflection and debriefing – all of which can improve their overall learning and work experience. Classes can be taken by current or prospective healthcare providers or first responders.

    We know that the information you gain during your BLS classes in Kentucky isn't "one and done" – and that your skills will wax and wane with use. That's why we've developed a range of materials that you can use long after your training is complete. Just a few of the options available to help you keep your skills sharp include our CPR/AED refreshers, the CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers Handbook, and a variety of fact sheets – like our oxygen, airway, and suctioning fact sheets. With these and other resources available online anytime, you can be prepared to help during times of crisis.

    After completing your BLS training in Kentucky, you'll not only have access to a range of refresher materials to help keep your skills sharp, but you'll have online access to the Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers Handbook. This way, you can study the protocols and procedures for a range of scenarios at your leisure – and keep all of the information you learned in class fresh in your memory. If you prefer, you can even print the BLS handbook and carry it with you – that way you won't have to have online access in order to study.
