American Red Cross

First Aid/CPR/AED Courses

The purpose of the American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED courses is to train participants to recognize and respond appropriately to first aid emergencies. The course teaches skills that participants need to know to give immediate care to a suddenly injured or ill person until more advanced medical personnel arrive and take over. We also offer American Red Cross Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED courses!  We offer these classes in a blended learning format.  Online modules are completed online at home prior to meeting our instructors for the in-person skills training.
