BLS Certification in Ridgewood
With our Basic Life Support (BLS) classes in Ridgewood, 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.
When you enlist the help of the Red Cross for your team's BLS training in Ridgewood, you'll not only get certified, experienced instructors who can help you train in real-world scenarios, but you'll also gain the ability to customize your training for your team. Because our classes are modular and flexible, our instructors can work with you to insert local protocols into your coursework. This enables your team to work through situations as they would actually respond, which will make their training more meaningful to them and the community they serve.
In Ridgewood, our BLS classes deliver the information you need to work efficiently and effectively, and improve patient outcomes. When you sign up for in-person BLS training, you'll spend approximately 4.5 hours learning the latest information and studying the newest techniques. From CPR and AED usage, to problem solving and team dynamics, our classes cover it all in a way that's easy to understand and easy to implement.
Designed for those who prefer to study at their own pace, our innovative Simulation Learning experience blends online coursework with in-person skills sessions, so you can learn your way. Featuring all of the same information as our in-person Ridgewood BLS classes, our Simulation Learning course makes it easy to learn the latest in CPR and AED usage, problem solving and team dynamics. And with our in-person skills sessions, you'll be able to demonstrate your skills to a trained instructor and, upon successful completion, earn full certification.
After successfully completing your BLS classes in Ridgewood, your certification will be valid for two years. However, if you don't use the skills you've learned, they're easy to forget. That's why we've developed a number of BLS refresher materials, including games, quizzes and videos that you can access at any time. This way, you'll be ready to help when your community needs you most.
