• BLS Certification in Detroit

    With our Basic Life Support (BLS) classes in Detroit, you can learn how to safely and effectively respond to medical emergencies in your community. Designed for first responders and medical professionals, our BLS courses give you access to new techniques and information so you can sharpen your skills, provide care to those in need, and help improve patient outcomes.

    Earning, or renewing, your BLS certification is easy with the Red Cross. We offer BLS classes in Detroit that you can take in-person or via our blended Simulation learning experience, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. Both types of classes use a scenario-based approach that allows you to think critically when providing care and solving problems, and they help you develop effective communication skills, which can help drive better patient outcomes.

    When you sign up for one of our BLS classes in Detroit, you'll learn how to provide important care to those in need. Among the topics we cover are CPR and AED usage, relieving obstructed airways for adults, children and infants, as well as first aid best practices, scene assessment, critical thinking, teamwork, communication and more.

    To augment your Detroit 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.

    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 Detroit 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 Red Cross, we not only offer BLS classes in Detroit, but we make it possible for you to become a trainer, and proctor certifications for members of your own organization and your community. To help you become a Red Cross trainer, we will recognize your current instructor certifications and offer free instructor bridging. Along with our portfolio of BLS classes, we are a leading provider of OSHA-compliant health and safety training, offering a wide range of training programs to our partners, including First Aid / CPR/ AED, Wilderness and Remote First Aid, Babysitting, and more.

    At the American Red Cross we've trained first responders and medical professionals for more than 100 years, and our Detroit BLS certification courses are an extension of that legacy. Developed with the latest science and best practices in mind, our courses give you the training you need to help in an emergency.
