The Red Cross delivers BLS classes in Rhode Island 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.
After completing your Rhode Island 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.
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 Rhode Island. 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 Rhode Island, you can gain the skills necessary to help save a life. Find a class in your area, and be prepared to help.
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 Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island 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.
When you sign up for an adult first aid class, your training will focus solely on providing care to adults. Throughout class, your knowledgeable instruction team will help you learn how to deliver care to an adult suffering from an asthma attack, an allergic reaction (or anaphylaxis), as well as heart attacks and strokes. In addition, you'll learn how to help during choking incidents, how to care for those suffering from external bleeding, and a wide range of other illnesses, ailments and emergencies.

By empowering you to provide care for infants, children and adults, you can truly be prepared to help - no matter who needs your assistance. That's why, in Rhode Island, pediatric first aid is included along with our adult care instructions. After all, small bodies with developing bones and organs do tend to be more delicate than those of adults, so precautions and/or actions will, and should, vary based on the age of the person who needs your assistance.
