BLS Certification in Lexington
Whether you're training to become a first responder or you're already a medical professional, our Lexington BLS certification classes can help you gain the skills and knowledge you need to provide care during times of crisis. Taught by local experts in the industry who understand the challenges your community faces, our BLS classes can help you learn how to deliver basic life support in a wide range of scenarios.
In Lexington, BLS certification classes from the American Red Cross are available in two formats: in person, and via our blended Simulation Learning experience. In-person classes are held in a traditional classroom setting – with an instructor and classmates, and the hands-on skills session immediately follows. Simulation Learning, however, allows you to receive the same "lecture" material, but in an online environment – so you can spend time with the information and synthesize it in your own way. Once complete, you can schedule your in-person skills session, where you'll learn proper techniques and have the opportunity to prove your skills to a licensed instructor. After successfully completing both sections of the course, you'll receive full certification. For more information or to book your BLS class, check our newest schedule.
If you have several team members who need BLS training in Lexington, you can schedule a group class with the Red Cross and allow everyone to train together. This way, everyone will get the training they need, and they can work together – building trust and relationships throughout class. Additionally, we can customize your program to fit your specific needs, include your local protocols and cover your organization's unique guidelines and principles.

During and after your BLS training in Lexington, the Red Cross will be here for you. From our world-class instruction and BLS Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers Handbook, to our free, online refresher materials that can help you maintain your skills, and our available continuing education units (CEUs) – we can help you gain the information you need to achieve your goals, and even surpass them.
Even after completing your BLS certification in Lexington, we'll be here to help you maintain your skills. After all, if you don't use or practice them regularly, they're easy to lose. Which is why we provide all of our course "graduates" with online refresher materials, including quizzes, games and other activities that take just a few minutes to complete, but can keep your skills sharp and ready for anything. Check out our Refresher Center for more information.
If your BLS credentials are currently valid, or within 30 days of expiring, you can enroll in one of our Lexington BLS renewal classes and, after successful completion, extend your certification by two years. All of our renewal courses are abbreviated (when compared to our initial certification courses), and give you the latest information on providing patient care that can improve outcomes. With science-based information and world-class instructors, a lecture and skills session, you can update your knowledge, improve your skills, and continue helping those in need.
