With a variety of techniques covered, including hands-only, traditional CPR (hands and rescue breathing), and rescue breathing only, as well as training on how to perform CPR on adults, children and infants, we'll prepare you to provide care when it's needed most.

Part of keeping our schools safe for everyone includes ensuring that those on campus can provide care when it's needed most. To that end, we offer CPR training in Kansas that not only delivers important training to educators, administrators and other school staff, but allows those who undergo our training to become instructors who can help other faculty members and students earn their own CPR certification.

Red Cross Basic Life Support (BLS) classes in Kansas are designed for healthcare providers and public safety professionals who deliver critical care to the public during times of crisis. Our BLS training allows students to develop a wide range skills and earn a number of important certifications, including scene safety and assessment, CPR and AED use, obstructed airway, and more. In addition, if you choose to take your Kansas BLS certification classes as a crew or team, we can work with you to include your local protocols during the class, for a custom learning experience.
After completing your Kansas BLS certification, keeping your skills fresh is critical to providing quality care that helps improve patient outcomes. In order to help you stay sharp, we've developed online refresher activities that take just a few minutes to complete, but can make all the difference when you're in the field. In addition to our refresher materials, you'll also have access to the BLS handbook that you used in your training. With this, you can study a wide range of procedures and ensure that you're ready for anything.
More than 350,000 people in the U.S. will suffer from sudden cardiac arrest this year - and an AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm after such an event. Unfortunately, the average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8 to 12 minutes - and for each minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest reduces by approximately 10%. However, with AED classes in Kansas from the American Red Cross, you can learn how to help during times of crisis, and provide critical assistance when it's needed most. Sign up for AED training, and gain the skills needed to help save a life.
Whether you need full, OSHA-compliant certification or simply want to gain the skills and confidence necessary to help save a life, we offer a variety of Kansas AED classes that can help you get the training you need. With courses available during the day, evening, and on weekends, and available online, in person, or via our blended Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session, you can earn your Kansas AED certification, and learn how to provide critical care during sudden cardiac arrest.
Note: If you need OSHA-compliant certification, only in-person and Simulation Learning courses satisfy the requirements for full certification.
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 Kansas, and choose the right option for the way you learn.
