Course Description

Get certified through our American Red Cross training course and be ready to respond when there’s an emergency. This OSHA compliant and affordable class provides expert training for participants, teaching the skills needed to respond appropriately to cardiac, breathing, and first aid emergencies. This course is made up of three modules: First Aid, CPR, and AED. The CPR and AED modules cover adult, child, and infant emergencies. 

We also offer a version of this class for those who cannot spend the entire class time on-site. View our "hybrid" class, which combines the online American Red Cross curriculum and face to face assessment.
