At the American Red Cross, CPR/AED classes take just a few hours, but can help you save a life when every moment counts. With CPR/AED classes for Good Samaritans, parents, teachers, grandparents, office staff, and medical professionals alike, we can help you learn how, and when, to provide care for someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.
Take a CPR/AED Class Designed for the Way You Learn
- In Person: Created for those who learn best in a traditional classroom environment, our in-person CPR/AED classes are led by knowledgeable instructors who not only deliver the latest information, but can help you learn when and how to use an AED the right way.
- Online: When you choose an online CPR/AED class, you can learn at your own pace – and in the comfort of your home. However, because online CPR/AED classes are completed virtually, you will not have the opportunity to demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor, which means that you may not meet the requirements for workplace safety certification.
- Blended Learning: Featuring award-winning simulation learning, our blended learning programs combine self-paced, interactive instruction and in-person skills sessions. Blended Learning courses allow you to learn on your schedule, then demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor.
