American Red Cross Basic Life Support and First Aid Blended Learning Course

About the Class

The Basic Life Support with First Aid blended learning course is intended for healthcare providers responding to cardiac and breathing emergencies in various settings. The course specializes in skills in CPR, AED, and First Aid, along with elements of communication and adaptability when responding to emergencies. This course is particular to individuals who will communicate, respond and provide care to coworkers that they may have never met before due to the large number of staffing.

The blended course features award-winning simulation learning – an interactive experience where you will respond to real-world emergencies in a virtual setting – which will prepare you for the instructor-led classroom skill session.

There will be a total of two interactive presentations you must complete before attending the in-person skill session: one for Basic Life Support, and one for First Aid.

Upon completion of the course, you will learn to communicate and assign roles in scenarios incorporating skills in CPR, First Aid, and AED.
