BLS Certification in Concord
Whether you're training to become a first responder or you're already a medical professional, our Concord BLS certification classes can help you gain the skills and knowledge you need to provide care during times of crisis. Taught by local experts in the industry who understand the challenges your community faces, our BLS classes can help you learn how to deliver basic life support in a wide range of scenarios.
In our Concord BLS classes, you'll learn how to be the person who can be counted on during times of crisis. Throughout the class you'll gain the skills and knowledge necessary for providing care, like CPR, AED, and first aid, and how to help clear obstructed airways for infants, children and adults, but you'll also learn how to work with compassion, how to ensure that the scene is safe for everyone, how to communicate with your teammates and how to solve problems swiftly. During class you'll work alone, but you'll also work in teams, which will allow you to understand what needs to happen and when – all from a variety of perspectives. Of course, you'll have ample time to ask questions and perfect your skills – so you can leave class knowing that you can capably, confidently help when it's needed most. For details on all of the BLS training opportunities available, check our new class schedule.

In Concord, your Basic Life Support certification will be valid for two years. However, rather than completing another full course to maintain your certification, you can simply sign up for an abbreviated BLS recertification class. These classes are designed for those whose credentials are still valid (or within 30 days of expiring), and allow you to avoid a lapse in certification so you can stay certified and stay on the job.
