First Aid and CPR/AED

People can save 20 percent on the price of a First Aid and CPR/AED course. Participants learn how to perform CPR and use an AED, what to do if someone is choking, and how to prevent and respond to other emergencies.

How to control bleeding as well as how to care for seizures and other sudden illnesses are also covered.

Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED training helps meet OSHA standards and professional licensure requirements. Courses are offered in traditional classroom and blended learning formats.

Blending learning is a combination of online learning and a shorter in-person skills session. The course fee includes a two-year certification with online skill refreshers and digital materials.
