About The American Red Cross First Aid, CPR, & AED Courses

Choosing to participate in workplace first aid and CPR can be an excellent team-building exercise and can make you feel more connected with your fellow coworkers.

Understanding how to respond when an emergency breaks out at work can be integral in many ways, and you can utilize the skills you’ll gain in other environments if you need to. First aid and CPR training is mandatory for employees in the workplace and the courses offered by the American Red Cross are compliant with OSHA standards.

All the first aid and CPR courses are taught by trained Red Cross First Aid Instructors, who take part in a certification and recertification process to stay up-to-date on the latest guidelines.

Purpose of The Course

The American Red Cross First Aid/CPR program helps participants recognize and respond appropriately to cardiac, breathing and first aid emergencies. The courses in this program teach the knowledge and skills needed to give immediate care to an injured or ill person and to decide whether advanced medical care is needed.  This program offers a choice of first aid, bloodborne pathogens, and CPR and AED courses to meet the various training needs of a diverse audience and is offered in traditional classroom or blended learning (online learning with instructor-led skill session) formats.
