Red Cross Training in Nebraska
In Nebraska, Red Cross training classes are taught by experts, 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 Red Cross training in Nebraska, and throughout the country, aligns with the latest evidence-based knowledge in science and medicine, and adheres to relevant industry standards and guidelines.
Red Cross CPR classes can help you deliver life-saving care during a breathing or cardiac emergency. With a variety of techniques covered, including hands-only, traditional CPR (hands and rescue breathing), and rescue breathing only, as well as training on how to perform CPR on adults, children and infants, we'll prepare you to provide care when it's needed most. To earn your certification, check out the adult and pediatric CPR classes available in Nebraska.
The Red Cross offers CPR renewal classes, as well as CPR recertification courses, in Nebraska. These courses allow you to refresh your memory, renew your skills and stay up to date on the latest techniques. Our CPR renewal courses are designed for those whose credentials are still valid but near expiration. These classes are delivered in less time than standard CPR classes, and allow you to maintain certification for an additional two years. If your CPR certification has lapsed, you'll need to register for a full-length CPR class in order to maintain certification. Find a recertification class or a CPR renewal course in Nebraska, and get training you need to maintain your credentials.
At the Red Cross, BLS classes in Nebraska are available to healthcare workers and public safety professionals. These classes can be taken in two ways: In person or via our blended Simulation Learning. In person BLS training takes place entirely in person, with classmates and an instructor. This type of class provides you with ample time to explore topics, ask questions and learn all of the care techniques addressed in class. For those who choose Simulation Learning, the same information will be taught in an online environment, but interactive discussion won't be possible. Once the "lecture" portion of the class is complete, you'll join an in-person skill session where you'll demonstrate your BLS skills to a certified instructor. Both courses, once complete, result in full certification.
For those who have already completed their BLS training, the American Red Cross offers BLS recertification courses that allow you to learn new skills and procedures, refresh your memory and extend your certification by two years. Designed for those whose credentials are still valid (or within 30 days of expiring), our abbreviated BLS renewal courses in Nebraska can help you avoid a lapse in certification so you can stay on the job. If your certification expired more than 30 days ago, you can sign up for one of our standard courses and earn a new BLS certification.
More than 350,000 people in the U.S. will suffer from sudden cardiac arrest this year – and an AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm after such an event. Unfortunately, the average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8 to 12 minutes – and for each minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest reduces by approximately 10%. However, with AED classes in Nebraska from the American Red Cross, you can learn how to help during times of crisis, and provide critical assistance when it's needed most. Sign up for AED training, and gain the skills needed to help save a life.
Whether you need full, OSHA-compliant certification or simply want to gain the skills and confidence necessary to help save a life, we offer a variety of Nebraska AED classes that can help you get the training you need. With courses available during the day, evening, and on weekends, and available online, in person, or via our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session, you can earn your Nebraska AED certification, and learn how to provide critical care during sudden cardiac arrest.
Note: If you need OSHA-compliant certification, only in-person and Simulation Learning courses satisfy the requirements for full certification.
In Nebraska, lifeguarding classes from the American Red Cross are available in person, and via our blended Simulation Learning format – which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. Both courses allow you to develop the skills needed to become a professional lifeguard, including first aid and CPR/AED training, rescue techniques, teamwork skills, and more. Classes use written testing and hands-on training, and successful completion of both portions of the class will result in earning your Nebraska lifeguard certification – making it possible to start your career as a lifeguard.
At the Red Cross, you can not only earn your Nebraska lifeguard certification, but you can also become certified in two additional types of lifeguarding: shallow water and aquatic attraction. Each of these three training options can be customized via add-on modules that allow you to gain experience in a variety of facets of lifeguarding. Explore all of the lifeguard training available in Nebraska, and find the right classes for all that you hope to accomplish.
If you've chosen to complement your babysitter training in Nebraska, and become certified in first aid and CPR, you can use our refresher materials to help keep those skills sharp and the information fresh in your memory. After all, according to a research review conducted by the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, CPR skill retention progressively decreases for about a year after training, and less than half of CPR course participants can pass a skills test just 12 months later. All of our refresher materials are free to Red Cross certificate holders, and can be completed online in just a few short minutes. However, because they can help you respond appropriately – and without delay – they can make all the difference to someone in need.
Although each of our Nebraska babysitting classes delivers a different level of instruction and information, they all focus on providing you with the information you need to become a capable, confident babysitter. Throughout all of our courses you'll learn about subjects like providing care to infants and children, choosing age-appropriate activities, what to do in an emergency, basic first aid, child behavior, and more. Learn more about our babysitter training opportunities and decide whether they're right for you.
Note: None of our babysitting training in Nebraska is intended as certification for state-licensed childcare providers and does not meet all state requirements for such certification.
The American Red Cross offers first aid classes in Nebraska that can help you prepare for the unexpected. Our training includes the latest evidence-based procedures so you can provide care to adults, children, and infants during times of need.
