American Red Cross First Aid

ARC First Aid Training

When you take a first aid class from the American Red Cross, you'll gain the skills you need to help others during times of crisis. Designed to last just a few short hours, our first aid classes can help you recognize the signs that someone needs help and administer the right type of care. In addition to offering certification courses for the public and medical professionals alike, we also offer abbreviated recertification courses in first aid. This way, you can easily maintain your skills, and your credentials.

How can this course be taken?

  • In-Person: Led by knowledgeable instructors, our in-person CPR courses combine lectures with hands-on skills sessions. Perfect for those who learn best in a traditional classroom setting, our in-person classes give you ample time to ask questions and become comfortable with the latest techniques.

  • Online: These online, self-paced courses deliver CPR training that can help you understand how to respond to a cardiac or breathing emergency. After passing a learning assessment with a score of 80% or better, you will have successfully completed the course. However, when you choose an online CPR class you will not have the opportunity to demonstrate your skill proficiency to a certified instructor, and therefore may not meet the requirements for workplace safety certification.

  • Blended Learning: Using a combination of self-paced, interactive online CPR classes and in-class skill sessions, our groundbreaking blended learning courses give you the ability to train on your schedule, and demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor.
