BLS Certification in Missouri
The American Red Cross offers BLS training in Missouri for new learners and experienced learners looking for remediation, as well as review courses for those who already hold a current healthcare provider-level CPR/AED certification. In all cases these classes take approximately 2.5 to 4.5 hours to complete. In addition, we offer a Challenge component for those seeking certification but do not want to attend a full course. This option allows participants to prepare on their own before completing the required written exam and skills assessment in front of a certified instructor.
Our best-in-class Simulation Learning experience is designed for those who need the freedom to learn at their own pace. Delivered via a combination of self-paced, interactive classes, and culminating with in-person skills sessions, these Missouri BLS classes give you the opportunity to train on your schedule, and demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor.
Missouri BLS certification courses are led by best-in-class instructors who combine lecture with hands-on skills sessions, which allows you to learn the information and put it into practice quickly. Held in a traditional classroom setting, our in-person classes provide students with the opportunity to ask questions and work through the information with their instructors and classmates. In addition, you'll receive direct guidance on performing skills so you can become confident in your methods prior to taking your certification exam.
The American Red Cross offers Missouri BLS classes designed specifically for those seeking recertification. These abbreviated courses can help you understand the latest science behind BLS care, and learn new protocols and best practices. Recertification and renewal courses are available at a wide range of convenient times and locations, and are open to anyone whose credentials are within 30 days of expiring.
All of our BLS classes in Missouri, and across the country, use the Red Cross BLS Handbook. This training resource allows you to study real-life situations, which may include complicated scenarios where multiple people may need care, and multiple symptoms may require treatment. This way, you can practice prioritizing care even before treating your first patient. In addition to the handbook, we offer a wide range of online materials that you can access before, during, and after your class, and continue your education long after earning your certification.
American Red Cross BLS classes are developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, the information available in our Missouri BLS classes is both proven and up to date. Our world-class instructors, and the entire Red Cross, are committed to helping you learn life-saving techniques that can improve patient outcomes and help you thrive in your career.
