• BLS Certification in Asheville

    First responders and healthcare providers deliver life-saving care in times of need. And at the Red Cross, we have more than 100 years of experience in training individuals who will be there when you need them most. When you join one of our Asheville BLS training classes, you'll not only learn from experience professionals who understand the situations that you'll face every day, but you can rest assured that the information and techniques discussed in class are both proven, and at the forefront of innovation. After all, every course we offer, including our BLS classes, are developed under the guidance of, and reviewed by, the renowned Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council.

    At the Red Cross, we offer BLS training in Asheville that's designed for the way you learn. For those who prefer a traditional classroom approach, we offer in-person courses that give you ample time to ask questions and work through issues with your classmates and your instructor. For those who need more flexibility, we offer our blended Simulation Learning experience, which gives you the opportunity to review the course material online, then join others for an in-person skills session. Regardless of which option you choose, when successfully completed, you'll receive a two-year certification, and access to refresher materials to help keep the information and skills you've learned fresh in your memory.

    When you sign up for one of our BLS classes in Asheville, you'll learn how to provide important care to those in need. Among the topics we cover are CPR and AED usage, relieving obstructed airways for adults, children and infants, as well as first aid best practices, scene assessment, critical thinking, teamwork, communication and more.

    At the Red Cross, we not only offer BLS classes in Asheville, but we make it possible for you to become a trainer, and proctor certifications for members of your own organization and your community. To help you become a Red Cross trainer, we will recognize your current instructor certifications and offer free instructor bridging. Along with our portfolio of BLS classes, we are a leading provider of OSHA-compliant health and safety training, offering a wide range of training programs to our partners, including First Aid, CPR, AED, Wilderness and Remote First Aid, Babysitting, and more.

    After successfully completing your BLS classes in Asheville, 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.

    If your certifications are nearing their expiration date, or are within 30 days of expiring, you can take an abbreviated course that will allow you to learn the latest information and sharpen your skills, and renew your credentials for two more years.

    If your crews need to renew their BLS certifications, the Red Cross can help. With customized BLS classes in Asheville, our expert instructors can not only help your team learn the latest national protocols, and refresh their knowledge of best practices, but they can also cover your local protocols, so your crews can provide the best BLS services possible.
