Red Cross Training in Louisiana
In Louisiana, Red Cross training classes are taught by experts, and include only proven, vetted procedures. All of our programs are based on the latest science, standards and regulations, and are overseen by the Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council – a panel of nationally recognized experts from scientific, medical, and academic disciplines. With the Council's guidance, we're able to ensure that Red Cross training in Louisiana, and throughout the country, aligns with the latest evidence-based knowledge in science and medicine, and adheres to relevant industry standards and guidelines.
Each year, between 300,000-400,000 deaths due to cardiac arrests occur in the United States outside of a hospital. By taking one of our CPR classes in Louisiana, Red Cross experts can help prepare you to provide care during times of crisis – and help you save the life of someone you love. Classes are available in person, online, and via Simulation Learning, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. This way, you can get the CPR training you need, in the format that suits you best. Check out the classes available in your area, and earn your Louisiana CPR certification.
The American Red Cross is approved to award continuing education units (CEUs) in Preparedness and Health and Safety Services. So, if you're a nurse, social worker, teacher, daycare provider or other professional who needs Health and Safety Services CEUs in order to maintain licensure or certification, we can help. Our CEUs include CPR classes in Louisiana, as well as Wilderness and Remote First Aid, Administering Emergency Oxygen, Responding to Emergencies, Bloodborne Pathogens Training, and more.
The Red Cross delivers BLS classes in Louisiana 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 Louisiana 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.
Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) seem to be virtually everywhere – in schools and offices, airports, sports stadiums, boutiques and malls. But do you know how and when to use one? If the answer is no (or even if it's maybe), then it's time to sign up for AED classes in Louisiana. After all, 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%. Fortunately, with CPR/AED training in Louisiana, you can gain the skills necessary to help save a life. Find a class in your area, and be prepared to help.
After completing your Red Cross AED training in Louisiana, 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.
The American Red Cross offers first aid classes in Louisiana that can help you prepare for the unexpected. Our training includes the latest evidence-based procedures so you can provide care to adults, children, and infants during times of need. Classes include instruction on caring for others during asthma attacks, anaphylaxis, choking, external bleeding, and heart attacks, as well as caring for those with burns, plus a wide range of other emergencies.
Note: Some classes focus only on adult care, so please be aware when scheduling your first aid training in Louisiana.
At the Red Cross, first aid training in Louisiana is available in three ways – online, in-person, and via our Simulation Learning experience, which combines online coursework with in-person skills sessions. This way, you can learn your way – and take classes that suit your schedule. If you need an OSHA-compliant certification, only in-person and Simulation Learning courses satisfy OSHA requirements. However, if full-certification isn't required by your job or a volunteer organization, online-only courses may suit your needs.
