BLS Certification in Lincoln
At the American Red Cross, we understand that schedules can be challenging, and that everyone learns differently. That's why we offer our Lincoln Basic Life Support certification classes in two formats: in person, which includes a lecture and a skills session, and via Simulation Learning, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. Once successfully completed, both types of courses result in full certification. So regardless of how you learn best – you can get the credentials you need for the job you want.
In Lincoln, our BLS certification classes have been designed for first responders, nurses, EMTs and other medical professionals. The course has been developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council – a panel of more than 50 nationally recognized experts from a wide range of scientific, medical and academic disciplines – ensuring that the information provided in class meets or exceeds local, state and/or national standards. For information on upcoming BLS certification classes, check the newest course schedule.
When you earn your BLS certification for healthcare providers in Lincoln, you'll not only gain the skills necessary for the job you want, but you'll gain the skills to help someone on their worst day. During our Basic Life Support class, you'll learn how to assess scenes, and receive science-based information on CPR, first aid, AED, and obstructed airways for adults, children and infants. In addition, you'll gain invaluable critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork and communication skills, and learn about the legal considerations when providing BLS care. Check our newest class schedule, and take the first step toward a career as a first responder.
If your BLS credentials are currently valid, or within 30 days of expiring, you can enroll in one of our Lincoln 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.
