Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification
If you are looking for BLS certification in Saint Louis, we offer classes to meet your need. Basic Life Support certification, more commonly known as BLS, provides instruction and practice in providing life-saving care to those in need. Often BLS courses are required or recommended for certain professions. These professions may include lifeguards, teachers, coaches, or babysitters. Many of these professions require American Heart Association certification
Our BLS certification classes in St Louis provide you with instruction around the chain of survival for adult and pediatric patients. You will learn the necessary steps you should take to respond to an emergency and achieve the best possible results.
During our BLS certification classes, we will provide you with instruction on how to properly administer CPR. We will go over the appropriate ratio of compressions to breaths recommended for successful CPR. We will go over the differences between providing CPR as a single rescuer, as well as appropriate roles when there are two rescuers (like an EMT and paramedic) available to provide CPR to a victim. This will allow you to be prepared to act whether you are by yourself or in the company of another trained rescuer.
Our BLS classes will also provide training focused on how to properly use an automated external defibrillator (AED) to delivery life-saving care. Many offices and public places now have AEDs and there may be one located at your job site. Knowing how to use an AED properly and efficiently can mean the difference between life and death for a person. During our training courses, our instructors will work with you to make sure you are confident about operating an AED in the case of an emergency.
If you are looking for Saint Louis BLS certification courses, we are here to provide you with expert training to leave you confident and prepared. If you are required to receive BLS training for your profession, allow us to help you fulfill your requirements.
If you are an employer looking to schedule BLS training for a group of your employees, we would love to help you organize a program. We are available to come to your office or building for training, or we can host your group in our facility.
