Taking an EMT ClassThe American Red Cross offers continuing education for emergency medical technicians (EMTs). Delivered through our Basic Life Support (BLS) courses for Healthcare Providers, our training opportunities allow EMTs to stay current with their CPR, AED and other basic life support skills for adults, children and infants. In addition, when EMTs from the same facility take Red Cross classes together, they'll not only improve their skills individually, but they'll work together in ways that will help them foster relationships and drive better patient outcomes. Red Cross EMT courses are consistent with AHA Guidelines for CPR/ECC, are delivered nationwide by our expert instructors, and offer learners the flexibility to complete part of their training online through our dynamic Simulation Learning.
EMT training from the Red Cross includes the latest science-based information and techniques, and is led by knowledgeable instructors who understand what it's like to work in the field, and can help you and/or your teams work through problems or situations you might find uncomfortable or otherwise tricky. In addition, we understand that not everyone learns in the same way, so our instructors are adept at explaining concepts in a variety of ways. And for those who either don't have the time to attend an in-person-only class, or learn better in an online environment, we offer EMT training in a blended format. By selecting our Simulation Learning courses, you can take online courses, as well as in-person, hands-on classes and receive your full recertification.
