This hands-on skills training prepares you to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies for adults, youth, and infants. It also teaches the skills and knowledge needed to provide care for victims of sudden cardiac arrest through the safe use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). Additionally the First Aid portion will help participants identify and eliminate potentially hazardous conditions in their environment, recognize emergencies and make appropriate decisions for first aid care. It teaches skills that participants need to know in order to provide immediate care of a suddenly ill or injured person until more advanced medical care arrives. These practices require strenuous activity. If you have a medical condition or disability that might prevent you from taking part in the practice sessions, or if you have any questions at all about your ability to participate fully in the course, you should discuss it with your health care provider before you start the course.
Upon successful completion of the American Red Cross course, you will receive a certificate via email approximately 1 week after the last day of the course. The certification is valid for two years.
Books and materials will be available to you during the class but you will not be allowed to take them home. However, free online versions of all materials are available to you at the following websites:
Refunds or transferring to other classes are not allowed when the course is less than 72 working hours in advance and will result in a $15 administrative fee.
