BLS Certification in Silver Spring
Red Cross BLS classes in Silver Spring 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.
For those who prefer a traditional classroom approach, we offer in-person courses in Silver Spring that give you ample time to ask questions and work through issues with your classmates and your instructor. For those who need more flexibility, we offer our blended Simulation Learning experience, which gives you the opportunity to review the course material online, then join others for an in-person skills session. Regardless of which option you choose, when successfully completed, you'll receive a two year certification, and access to refresher materials to help keep the information and skills you've learned fresh in your memory.
We not only offer BLS classes in Silver Spring, but we make it possible for you to become a trainer, and proctor certifications for members of your own organization and your community.

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 Silver Spring 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.
To augment your Silver Spring BLS training experience, we've developed step-by-step guides and a BLS Handbook that you can use during class and long after your training has ended. In our handbook we've outlined emergency procedures in detail, and in a way that reflects real-life scenarios. This way, you can learn how, or remember how, to provide the best possible care to those in need.
