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 Virtual Instructor led session to test their skills. Equipment and materials will be mailed to students*, along with a return postage slip. The virtual CPR class is just as effective as the in-person version as well as meet OSHA requirements for workplace certification.
*Equipment will only be shipped to locations (residential or business) in the continental United States.
The cost of this course is $150 with a $450 security deposit. The security deposit is refunded when all equipment is returned in the same condition as it was received, no more than 7 days after completing the course. See Policy for full details.
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.
Virtual Instructor Led Portion
Equipment and materials will be mailed to students, along with a return postage slip.
Participants will receive a Google Meet link in an email after they booked a class. The virtual instructor led session held over Google Meet is typically 2 hours and 30 minutes long. The in-person session will review:

Giving First Aid to a victim experiencing life threating bleeding.

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
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.
If you are having technical issues, contact the Training Support Center:

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.
