BLS Certification in Durham
Earning, or renewing, your BLS certification is easy with the Red Cross. We offer BLS classes in Durham that you can take in-person or via our blended Simulation learning experience, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. Both types of classes use a scenario-based approach that allows you to think critically when providing care and solving problems, and they help you develop effective communication skills, which can help drive better patient outcomes. All of our course materials are consistent with AHA Guidelines for CPR/ECC, and cover breathing and cardiac emergencies, including CPR, AED, and obstructed airway care for adults, children, and infants.
When you enlist the help of the Red Cross for your team's BLS training in Durham, 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.
After successfully completing your BLS classes in Durham, 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.
