The Red Cross delivers BLS classes in South Carolina that allow you to provide important patient care when it's needed most. Throughout your training, you'll learn new techniques in scene safety and assessment, CPR/AED use for adults, children and infants, plus obstructed airways, critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and teamwork, precautions, legal considerations, and more.
For those who have already completed their BLS training, the American Red Cross offers BLS recertification courses that allow you to learn new skills and procedures, refresh your memory and extend your certification by two years. Designed for those whose credentials are still valid (or within 30 days of expiring), our abbreviated BLS renewal courses in South Carolina can help you avoid a lapse in certification so you can stay on the job. If your certification expired more than 30 days ago, you can sign up for one of our standard courses and earn a new BLS certification.
An automated external defibrillator, or AED, works by checking the heart's rhythm, then delivering an electric shock to the heart of someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. AEDs are the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest. To learn how to use this important device, which is now readily available in office buildings, shopping centers, airports, sports stadiums, and more, sign up for AED classes in South Carolina from the American Red Cross.
After completing your Red Cross AED training in South Carolina, our refresher materials can help you maintain your skills so that you can respond appropriately and confidently during times of crisis. Refresher materials take just a few short minutes to use, but by keeping your memory (and your skills) sharp, they can mean all the difference to someone in need.
If you've chosen to complement your babysitter training in South Carolina, and become certified in first aid and CPR, you can use our refresher materials to help keep those skills sharp and the information fresh in your memory. After all, according to a research review conducted by the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, CPR skill retention progressively decreases for about a year after training, and less than half of CPR course participants can pass a skills test just 12 months later. All of our refresher materials are free to Red Cross certificate holders, and can be completed online in just a few short minutes. However, because they can help you respond appropriately – and without delay – they can make all the difference to someone in need.
Child care licensing is regulated at the state level, often requires on-site visits from inspectors, and typically requires candidates to meet a wide range of highly specific criteria. At the American Red Cross, we do not license facilities, nor is our certification intended to meet state child care licensing requirements. Instead, our South Carolina babysitting classes are designed to help older children and adults gain insights that allow them to responsibly care for children and infants inside and outside the home. These courses feature the latest in science- and evidence-based knowledge, but do not satisfy certification requirements from state agencies.
If you're interested in becoming a state-licensed child care provider, please contact the licensing agency in your area. However, if you'd like to learn how to provide quality care to the kids in your neighborhood, or your own family members, please explore the South Carolina babysitter training opportunities available from the American Red Cross.
First Aid Training
If you don't need full, OSHA-compliant first aid certification, our online learning courses can help you get the information you need from the comfort of your home. This type of Red Cross training is conducted entirely online and can be taken at your convenience. It covers the same information as our in-person course, including providing care to adults and children suffering from burns, heart attack, external bleeding, and more – but doesn't give you the opportunity to practice your skills in a real-world setting. If hands-on experience is important to you, you may choose to opt for an in-person or blended Simulation Learning course, which combines online learning with an in-person skills session. Take a look at the current list of in-person and online First Aid training in South Carolina, and choose the right option for the way you learn.
In addition to basic first aid for adults and children, you'll find a wide range of Red Cross classes that can help you take your skills to the next level. Whether you want to learn to teach First Aid, earn a certificate in wilderness and remote first aid, or need to learn basic life support for healthcare providers, we offer a wide range of first aid classes in South Carolina, as well as and related continuing education units that can help further your skills.
