BLS Certification in Providence
All of our Providence BLS certification courses allow first responders and medical professionals to learn the latest proven science and techniques, and challenge their critical thinking and problem-solving skills through our scenario-based approach. All of our courses are consistent with AHA Guidelines for CPR/ECC, and cover breathing and cardiac emergencies – including CPR, AED, and obstructed airway for infants, children, and adults.
In our Providence 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.
