The Adult & Pediatric First Aid/ CPR/AED class focuses on skills helping adults, children and infants.
The purpose of the courses in the First Aid/CPR/AED program is to help participants recognize and respond appropriately to cardiac, breathing and first aid emergencies to know how to care for a suddenly injured or ill person until more advanced medical personnel arrive and take over.
This class is a Blended Learning Class which gives students the ability to do most of the training online then attend an in-person session to test their skills.
The online portion can range from 30 minutes to 3 hours long depending on technology limitations and familiarity with the skills. Participants will receive a training link in an email after they booked a class. Participants must have online portion completed before coming into scheduled in-person session.
In-Person Instructor Led Portion
The in-person session is typically 2 hours and 30 minutes long. The in-person session will review:
Adult and Child CPR using an AED
Infant CPR using and AED
Adult and Child First Aid Choking
Infant First Aid Choking
Giving First Aid to a victim experiencing life threating bleeding.
Classes are open to the general public or can be privately scheduled on-site.
Participants who successfully complete the online and in-person portions will receive an American Red Cross Certification in Adult & Pediatric First Aid/CPR AED r.21. Certificates are valid for two years and will be issued in about one business day after the in-person class. Certificates are delivered via e-mail and can be found on the Red Cross Website.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Adult & Pediatric CPR certification the same as Basic Life Support certification?
No. Both classes share similarities but they are different courses. The Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED course is designed for first responders while the Basic Life Support class is designed for responders in a healthcare setting.
I'm having issues with the online learning who do I contact?
Technical issues with the online learning must go through the American Red Cross. Please be aware that they have a standard maintenance window of 4-6AM Eastern Time on Saturdays. If you are having difficulty accessing the site during that time period, please wait a few minutes and refresh the page.

Call: 800-RED-CROSS (800-733-2767)
How do I provide proof of completion if the FA/CPR/AED online course does not produce a “proceed to skill session” certificate?
There are two ways to show proof:
1) Students are welcome to simply print or show an electronic copy of the email they receive stating they have completed the online coursework.
2) If a student can’t provide proof of completion, we can provide the option for them to take the written test.
What is the difference between American Red Cross CPR and American Heart Association (AHA) CPR?
Both trainings are very similar since they are both based on the 2010 International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) Science with Treatment Recommendations (CoSTR). Differences exist because The Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council uses CoSTR to understand the science independent of the AHA.
